Air Conditioner Leak: Fix the symptom or cure the problem?

Tune-up your Air Conditioner Before Summer Hits!

Have a profession service your air conditioning for possible leaks befor summer hits.

When air conditioners begin running during the spring to keep your home cool they must be fully charged with refrigerant in order to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. If the refrigerant level is low then the air conditioner will not cool properly leaving you hot when the Indianapolis summer hits!

An air conditioning professional can diagnose your problem

A lot of homeowners think that a simple refrigerant “fill up” will fix the problem and begin cooling them down. However, recharging the refrigerant will only cure the symptom and leave the problem, a leaking air conditioner, still at large. To properly cure the problem you will need to have an Indianapolis air conditioner repair company diagnose the leak in the system and make the repair.

Here are a few considerations to make prior to making these air conditioning repairs:

  • R22 refrigerant is being phased out by the U.S. Government and is continually rising in cost.
  • If your refrigerant is low that means it is leaking somewhere. According to the EPA website, R22 refrigerant is known to contribute to ozone depletion and global warming. By only recharging the system, you will continue to allow the environment to be harmed by the leaking R22.
  • When you consider the rising costs of R22, the price of future repairs, and the utility savings of more efficient equipment, repairing a leak and adding refrigerant may not be the best solution financially. See our current Trane equipment specials.
