Signs of Low Refrigerant in Central Air Conditioner

Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning includes air conditioning troubleshooting for commercial and residential property owners in the Las Vegas, Nevada Valley. Among the troubleshooting issues we perform are the problems involving the refrigerant. The refrigerant is one of the key ingredients in the air conditioning system to keep your home cool while facing the scorching summer. There a few red flags that suggest the refrigerant is low.
1) Nothing but hot air. If the refrigerant is at inadequate levels, the air conditioning system will blow nothing but warm air into your home. Although there could be additional problems that is contributing to warm air blowing into your home or business that can include; the outside unit is layered in unit and unable to operate accordingly, the thermostat’s settings got flipped to “on” instead of “auto”, or the compressor is experiencing issues. But if the air conditioning is new, there could have been an insufficient charge and resulting refrigerant leak.
2) Ice on the refrigerant line. Low pressure lowers the temperature quickly. For example, anyone that has used a compressed can of air will notice that after excessive use that can itself will get freezing cold to the touch. A similar occurrence happens when the refrigerant is low, causing the ice to form on the lines. With the low pressure results in low temperatures, leading to ice on the evaporator coils. But additional problems could also be producing the ice on the evaporator coils.
3) AC emitting bubbling or hissing noises. When increasing pressure has built up in the refrigerant, if there is a substantial refrigerant leak, you will hear the bubbling and hissing sounds. A low refrigerant that has leaked is really the only way the sounds are produced. Refrigerant is depleted after use, it continually is recycled and if the refrigerant is low it was either because there was sufficient levels at installation, or the more likely reason, a leak is losing the refrigerant leak.
