I Have to Put Freon in My AC All the – Do I need to do anything about it?
The answer to this question is: DEFINITELY YES. If you are putting Freon in your AC system all the time it is because it is leaking out. Air Conditioners do not consume Freon, you should not have to replace it.
A Freon leak = $$$$
Not only is the price of Freon going up but an AC unit undercharged by only 10% will cost up to 30% more to run. Freon not only keeps your home cool but it keeps your AC’s motor cool as well. Just like when the coolant in your car is low, a low level of Freon will make your compressor run hot.
Low Freon = Low Oil = Excessive Wear & Tear
Freon is the blood of your system. It carries oil through your system that keeps the unit going. If there is no or reduced Freon present, your system is working harder than it has to and being exposed to more wear and tear.
Is a Freon leak expensive to fix?
Sometimes it can be, but quite often a leak is easy to repair or only requires a minor part replacement. If it is an expensive repair, you may not elect to repair it right away, but instead consult with one of our project managers to decide what the next step to take is.
