With all of the things that could go wrong with your air conditioning unit, having low refrigerant is among the most obvious. When the symptoms of low refrigeration are evident, it is time to call in a professional HVAC technician. The following are a few of the signs that you have a low refrigerant in your air conditioning Refrigeration system.
One of the most obvious signs that your air conditioning refrigerant is low is warm air blowing from you vents. If you find that your unit is unable to cool your home at all no matter how low you set the thermostat, then you should call a professional HVAC technician to check your system for problems. In most cases, after the refrigerant is put it you will have to run the unit for a while until the desired temperature is reached. Usually, this process will take longer than normal because the temperature of your home will be much higher than usual, which makes it harder to cool down.
Usually, if you are experiencing warm air coming through your vents, then its safe to assume that you will have some icing on your condenser coil located on the outside of your home. The first thing that you should do when you notice icing is to check your air conditioner filter for dirt and other things that may restricting the air flow to your until. Be sure to shut off your system completely when you notice icing, because the system will be working way too hard to cool your home. The icing caused by refrigerant is caused by leaking in the piping of your air conditioning Refrigeration system that in turn forms ice when the refrigerant completely leaks out of your system.
