What are
Gas Leaks?

One of the most common air conditioning problems is having a refrigerant leak. This eventually makes your air conditioner to stop sufficient cool air and hence it becomes ineffective in its operations. An air conditioner gas leakage may be caused by faulty installation, low gas levels, poor servicing and poor maintenance. Once detected, the gas leakage should be repaired as soon as it occurs. This is because continued use of a leaking air conditioner poses some dangers on the occupants of the specific building, the air conditioner itself and the environment as well.

Damage to the Air Conditioner

One of the immediate effect of using an air conditioner despite detecting the leak is damage to the whole device. This is because undue pressure is put on the compressor and this damages it. The compressor may break down due to overheating and as a result the entire condensing unit is damaged. This may require you to repair the whole device instead of just the leak alone, which is quite costly.

Health Hazard

When the coolant in the air conditioner leaks into a room, it quickly evaporates into a gas that is poses a health risk to the occupants. Its inhalation usually causes dizziness, headache and nausea and in prolonged periods it may lead suffocation, chronic bronchitis, obstructive pulmonary disease and even death.

Gas Leak Repair

When you detect a leak in your device, it is advisable that you contact an expert technician to do the repairs. This is because such an technician is experienced it the field and can easily detect the exact place where the gas is leaking using leak-detecting oil and determine what might have caused such. After conducting the repairs, which often include replacement of the coil, he will then top up the gas to the required levels. In no circumstance should you try to fix the problem yourself because this could actually worsen the condition.
