Here's Why Your AC System Refrigerant Leaks And Why You Should Not Ignore It

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Nowadays, part of living a comfortable household life is having a reliable air conditioning system. But once its refrigerant leaks — the chemical compound vital in cooling ambient air — air conditioning Surrey can do more harm than good. It can cause energy bills to spike and bring damage not only to the unit itself but to your family’s health as well. According to studies, AC refrigerant leaks can cause nausea, headache, and shortness of breath among others.

Experts further note that in worst cases, such leaks can also harm the environment. It can penetrate the soil and eventually pollute sources of water found underneath.

Needless to say, it’s imperative to address leakage issues in Air Conditioning in Surrey as soon as possible. To do so, you need to know the culprits behind these leaks. In this article, we are discussing their six most common causes.

Corrosion. Copper tube walls are part of the components that make up an HVAC system. Over time, these walls can experience corrosion. The rate of corrosion can speed up if there are high levels of formaldehyde in your home. Once these walls corrode significantly, they can lead to cracks, which in turn, can cause refrigerants to leak.

Clogged drain. The drain line is another critical part of your AC unit. If there’s too much algae build-up inside this line (the build-up can be attributed to the cool, damp nature of AC systems), it can lead to clogs and cause leakage when not resolved immediately.

Iced-up AC unit. For air conditioning in Surrey to function optimally, proper airflow is essential. If the airflow is restricted, the inside unit will frost, leading not only to leaks but to compressor damage as well. Airflow restrictions can be caused by unclean air filters and cooling oil and overheating blower motor among others.

Wear and tear. Like any other machines, AC units are subject to wear and tear over time. As components break down, they won’t be strong enough to prevent refrigerant from escaping the unit. Wear and tear can also cause weakened joints and connections, which can aggravate the leakage issue of your unit.

Factory defects. There are cases wherein the culprit is the way the AC unit was manufactured itself. From missing parts to poor assembly, these factor defects can cause a refrigerant leak and will only be detected once installed and in use.

Improper installation. When investing in an AC unit, you should also seriously consider tapping professionals for its installation. Why? Because when a unit is installed DIY-style, you can fit parts incorrectly. Poorly fitted AC components and parts can also cause refrigerants to leak.
