A home air conditioner unit uses a refrigerant – Freon – to pull heat out of your home’s air, then compress the A/C Freon to cool it. But, if there isn’t enough refrigerant, the heat can’t get pulled out; it just blows right back into your home. So what do you do?
Recharge. It’s not truly a “recharge”, it’s more of a “refill”. Your home A/C Freon is drained and refilled, returning your cooling unit to fighting shape.
Signs You Need A Recharge
But how do you know if you need a A/C Freon recharge? One of the best ways to know is if you’ve been cleaning you A/C filter and keeping maintenance up, but the vents are blowing near-room temperature air.
Another sign of a need for a recharge is if you have a leak. A leak can lead to frost or ice buildup on your A/C unit, usually on the pipes inside.
Regular maintenance by your local HVAC technician – like us – can help keep your A/C Freon charged up. During a maintenance visit, we can detect any leaks and repair or recharge your system.
