When HVAC professionals encounter small leaks in AC/R systems on the job, there are a few ways they can go about fixing them. One tool that more and more technicians are using is air conditioner repair putty. Repair putties are pastes that are often comprised of two different agents which are kneaded together, applied, and allowed to cure. They are great tools when repairing small leaks in AC/R systems. Read on to learn more about how to use air conditioner repair putty when repairing small leaks.
Using Air Conditioner Repair Putty
When using an external air conditioner repair putty, the first step is to identify and locate any leaks in the system using any standard leak detection method. Next, you should turn off the system. Clean the area surrounding the hole thoroughly so that the putty can adhere well. Knead together an appropriate amount of air conditioner repair putty. Then apply the putty so that it completely surrounds the section of pipe on which the leak is located, and allow to cure for the suggested duration. For SmartSeal External by Cool Air Products, we recommend that you allow four to five hours for the putty to cure and harden completely. Once your putty is fully hardened, you can run the system. To remove SmartSeal External from a system, spray it with seal remover, rotate the putty around the pipe gently using pliers, and remove.
