If your air conditioner is not cooling your home as well as it once did, or of you notice ice on the lines of your air conditioner, you may have a system low on refrigerant. If your system is low on refrigerant, it needs to have service as soon as possible to avoid costly damages and repairs. You may be wondering about whom to call to service your air conditioner. The right choice for all Bastrop residents and business owners is On Point Appliance & Air Conditioning.
Your air conditioner uses refrigerant to cool the air in your home. The refrigerant, likely R-22, is often called Freon. This refrigerant begins its journey in your compressor, the refrigerant is compressed and leaves the compressor as a high-pressure gas, were it enters the condenser. It is changed into a liquid in the condenser and then flows into the evaporator coils. While in the evaporator coils, it absorbs the heat from the air and then returns to the compressor to start the journey once more.
Ideally, the refrigerant in your air conditioner will never need to be recharged. However, if there is a leak in your system, the refrigerant can leak and will affect the efficiency of your air conditioning system. A leak in your system can also lead to water damage to your home or business.
When our technicians arrive at your home, we will first inspect your air conditioning unit. After inspection, which will include looking for visible leaks, checking for ice on your lines and any other signs that indicate a refrigerant problem, we will check your refrigerant levels. If your levels are low, we will ask if you want to have any leak in the system detected. It is important to detect and fix any leaks in your system to prevent the same issues from happening again. After we repair the leak, we will refill the refrigerant and do final test of the system.
