    Using Internal Sealants to Stop Refrigerant Leaks

    When servicing AC/R systems, you likely experience issues of different severity. While some parts or units need to be replaced entirely due to damage or corrosion, some fixes can be relatively quick and straightforward. Formicary corrosion is a typical result of acid in AC/R systems, and this often causes refrigerant to leak through tiny holes in the system. Fortunately, the pinprick holes left behind by acid can often be repaired once the acid is removed. Internal sealants that are manufactured today are an excellent repair option for HVAC technicians, as they allow for quick, easy, and cost-effective AC/R repair. Read on to learn why you should use internal sealants to stop refrigerant leaks.

    Detecting and Treating AC Coil Corrosion

    Last week, we discussed methods of detecting and removing acid in air conditioner systems. This week’s topic is somewhat related; AC coil corrosion is often a result of exposure to organic or inorganic acids. Some suggest that the uptick in AC coil corrosion that HVAC professionals have seen in recent years is the result of homes with increased insulation. When airflow is reduced due to better construction and insulation practices, compounds like acetic acid, formaldehyde, and acetone remain inside the home for longer. When these compounds come into contact with copper air conditioner coils, it results in formicary corrosion. This post will discuss methods of detecting and treating leaks due to AC coil corrosion.

    Air Conditioner Acid: Causes, Detection, and Removal

    Acid can form inside HVAC units in a variety of ways. Inorganic oils can form at high temperatures due to refrigerant degradation. This usually occurs when a compressor motor burns out. These acids will stay in the system even after the faulty motor is replaced unless an HVAC technician removes them. How can HVAC technicians tell when there is acid in a system, and how can they remove all residues? This blog will discuss methods of detecting and removing air conditioner acid.
