Watch Out for AC Refrigerant Leaks!

Monday, June 28th, 2021

Many of the most common problems that can affect a central air conditioning system occur during the last five or so years of the system’s service life. Wear and tear take their toll—even with regular maintenance done each year—and the AC will require attention from professionals until it reaches the point where it costs less to have a new system installed than to continue with repairs.

In this post, we’re looking at a problem that can strike earlier in an AC’s service life, sometimes starting after five years: refrigerant leaks. The copper lines that carry refrigerant through the air conditioner can corrode because of chemicals found in household air, and this often causes refrigerant to escape. Refrigerant loss is a major problem for an AC, that will lower its effectiveness and efficiency and can also cause a catastrophic breakdown. We’ll give you some help understanding these problems and spotting the signs you need air conditioning service in Campbell River, BC to fix refrigerant leaks.

We always urge our customers to move quickly when they think they need AC services. Delaying on important repair and replacement jobs can make the situation worse. But right now we have a special reason to recommend customers calling as soon as possible for new air conditioning equipment: a national HVAC equipment shortage.  

Many contractors are experiencing backlogs of orders on air conditioning systems because of COVID-18-related manufacturer shutdowns. Some customers are waiting up to four weeks to receive new air conditioners. We currently have a full inventory, but this is peak season for new AC installations, so please call us to schedule your service as early as you can.

Don’t delay—Temprite Climate Solutions wants to help you during this peak season! For a job done right, call Temprite!

An air conditioning system that’s making more noise than it used to, or is making unusual noises it hasn’t before, is a reason for concern.

In this post, we’ll examine some of those out-of-the-ordinary sounds that might come from your air conditioner and what they mean. When in doubt, go straight to calling for professional repairs rather than tinker with the AC yourself. Making an accurate diagnosis of air conditioning problems is something only trained technicians can do. Amateur work risks getting the problem wrong, and therefore getting the “repair” wrong.
