When it comes to HVAC repair and maintenance, no tool can act as a substitute for knowledge and experience. However, once you know what to look for and how to make repairs, using the best possible products for refrigerant leaks can go a long way in terms of making repairs that last. At Cool Air Products, we offer a wide range of products for refrigerant leaks that tackle every stage of a repair; from detecting and sealing pinholes to neutralizing acid and cleaning up afterward, Cool Air Products can help every step of the way. Here are some of the best products for refrigerant leaks offered by Cool Air Products.

Finding holes in AC/R systems can be a challenge. Frozen units are often malfunctioning due to a loss of refrigerant, and finding all leaks in the system is an essential part of making lasting repairs. From the age-old soap bubble test to modern electronic leak detectors, there are plenty of methods that one can use to detect leaks in HVAC units. Read on to learn about different methods of leak detection and why you should consider adding air conditioner UV dye to your toolkit.
When customers report a malfunctioning AC unit, refrigerator, or other AC/R system, there are a few potential culprits. Refrigerant leaks due to corrosion in AC coils are a common occurrence, and the first step in AC leak repair is locating any holes in the system. There are a few ways to detect these holes, and Cool Air Products has developed two products that can be used either internally or externally for leak detection. Read on to learn more about tracking down leaks in AC/R systems, and consider adding these two products to your AC leak repair arsenal.
When customers complain of decreased AC/R performance, HVAC professionals can have their work cut out for them trying to figure out why. In many cases, refrigerant leaks are the culprit. Refrigerant leaks can be as small as the head of a pin, but their effects can be catastrophic on HVAC systems. How can AC/R experts find these leaks? While there are many different methods of leak detection, this post will go over two leak detection products for refrigerant leaks: injectable UV dye and fluorescent leak detector spray.
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.
