When you go out to service AC/R systems in residential settings, it can seem like you are flying blind. While homeowners can describe the way that they see their systems malfunctioning, they often cannot tell you precisely what the problem is. In this blog, we will discuss some common complaints that point to air conditioner corrosion and which tools you can bring to service the system in question.
Signs of Air Conditioner Corrosion
Most homeowners do not have backgrounds in AC/R repair, and as a result, their complaints alone can make it difficult to diagnose a system. However, there are a few common signs that can indicate air conditioner corrosion. If a client says that their AC/R system is not performing as well as it used to, this could be a symptom of air conditioner corrosion. Higher power bills are another common sign that a unit’s coils are leaking refrigerant due to corrosion. While you should inspect and confirm your suspicions in person, knowing some of the signs that a homeowner might notice can help you determine which tools and repair materials you should bring with you.
Diagnostic and Repair Tools
There are many tools on the market designed to diagnose and repair leaks in AC/R systems. Fortunately, Cool Air Products makes it easy to carry all of the tools you’ll need with you in a small toolbox or work truck. Cool Air Products has two diagnostic tools that can detect refrigerant leaks: Best Bubbles Fluo and Brilliant. Best Bubbles Fluo is a spray, and Brilliant is an injectable dye. Both products cause refrigerant leaks to fluoresce when exposed to UV light. Air conditioner sealants, both internal and external, are valuable tools to keep on you at all times. AC SmartSeal and AC SmartSeal External are both excellent leak stop products that can help you permanently repair leaks due to air conditioner corrosion. Because the easy-to-use syringes and putty come in small, portable containers, they make a great addition to any tool kit.
