When you are servicing an AC/R unit, there are a few different ways to approach leak repair. Some technicians prefer internal liquid sealants, and others prefer external putties. When it comes to fixing refrigerant leaks, technicians and clients both want a permanent, reliable fix. To that end, some professionals choose to utilize both internal and external HVAC repair products for some repairs. This practice allows HVAC professionals to reinforce their repairs and get the best of both products. In this week’s blog, we will discuss the benefits of combining different types of HVAC repair products when fixing refrigerant leaks.
Internal Leak Sealants Seek Out Small Holes
Cool Air Products has a wide range of internal sealants for use in AC/R systems. AC SmartSeal is an injectable, polymer-free sealant that is compatible with all types of refrigerants. When used as directed, AC SmartSeal seeks out holes and fills them, creating a permanent seal without clogging or damaging the system. Internal sealants are ideal for situations where formicary corrosion has caused many small holes that may be difficult to detect. While AC SmartSeal is an excellent HVAC repair product for pinhole leaks on its own, pairing the product with an external sealant only reinforces the strength and durability of the repair.
External HVAC Repair Products Provide a Strong Fix
Many HVAC professionals prefer external putties for a few reasons. First, they provide a strong, visible barrier to seal the leak. Second, some technicians have had bad experiences with low-quality, polymer-filled internal sealants. Whatever the reason, external sealants are an excellent option for reinforcing repairs made with AC SmartSeal. When applied as directed, AC SmartSeal External creates a secure seal that can act on its own or with an internal sealant. The putty is inert when exposed to many all kinds of refrigerants and lubricants, and its portable and easy-to-use formula makes it an excellent addition to any toolkit.
