When a customer complains that their air conditioner is not working correctly, their freezer is not staying cold, or their equipment is overheating, a refrigerant leak may be to blame. While low levels of refrigerant in the system are a symptom of the problem, holes and corrosion are often the real culprits. When HVAC professionals are working on getting their clients’ units as efficient as possible, sealing holes and addressing structural issues is essential. In this blog, we will go over the importance of leak repair as well as a method that can be used to stop refrigerant leaks permanently.
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.
