Refrigerant is used in the air conditioning system to homes and businesses. Without it, your building does not cool down. Used in a heat pump and refrigeration cycle, a refrigerant is a substance or mixture, typically in fluid form. It undergoes a phase where it transitions from a liquid to a gas and back again into a liquid. Being phased out because of their ozone depletion effects fluorocarbons and especially chlorofluorocarbons the most common refrigerant used in air-conditioning systems was R-22, but now R-410A contains no chlorine and is considered ozone-friendly. Refrigerant is contained in the coils where this liquid agent cools and dehumidifies indoor air. Despite the fact that refrigerant doesn’t get used up, you can find your air conditioner lacks an adequate charge and we at Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to discuss why you are having refrigerant issues.

Central Air Conditioning Refrigerant Problems

1) Iced Refrigerant Line. The temperature lowers quickly when the pressure is low. An analogy to help you understand the meaning when a can of compressed air is used after moderate use, the can will get colder and eventually feel frozen to the touch. When the refrigerant is low, a similar occurrence happens which causes the ice to form on the lines. Ice on the evaporator coils is the results of low pressure and low temperatures. Additional reasons could be the source of frozen refrigerant lines.
2) AC Bubbling/Hissing Sounds. If there is a substantial refrigerant leak, you will hear the bubbling and hissing sounds suggests increasing pressure has built up in the refrigerant. After the refrigerant has leaked and levels have sunk, the sounds are made. Refrigerant is continually is recycled, it never depletes, unless there is a leak. If the air conditioner was not properly charged at the time of installation or has a leak, the refrigerant is low, creating hissing and bubbling sounds.
3) Air Conditioning Unit Blowing Hot Air. The air conditioning system will blow nothing but warm air into your home if the refrigerant is at inadequate levels. Problems that is contributing to warm air blowing into your home or business because the outside unit is layered in unit and unable to operate accordingly as well as simple thermostat error where it got set to “on” instead of “auto”, or the compressor is experiencing difficulty. As previously mentioned, the culprit is likely the low refrigerant levels.
