When you are on the job repairing AC/R systems, you never know what problems are going to come your way. Assessing and repairing leaks in air conditioner units can be a challenge, especially when you only have a limited amount of space for tools in your truck or tool kit. Fortunately, Cool Air Products has formulated a wide range of air conditioner leak repair products that are small, easy to use, and fit into any tool kit, no matter how small. In this blog, we will discuss external sealants. External sealants are an excellent solution for air conditioner leak repair.
Internal Vs. External Sealants
As the name suggests, external sealants work from the outside of the system to seal any holes. Some HVAC technicians prefer to use only external sealants, only internal sealants, or a mix of the two. Cool Air Products’s SmartSeal External, a leak stop putty for external use, creates a secure seal when used on its own. However, it can also be used to fortify other air conditioner leak repair measures. For example, SmartSeal External works well when used in tandem with AC SmartSeal QuickShot.
How to Use SmartSeal External
When using external leak stop products for air conditioner leak repair, it is essential that you first locate all leaks within a system. To do this, you can use either an internal or external leak detection product. Best Bubbles Fluo and Brilliant, both designed by Cool Air Products, fluoresce when exposed to UV light and are excellent options for AC leak detection. Once all holes have been located, knead a sufficient amount of SmartSeal External to combine both colors of putty. You should use enough putty to completely surround the pipe or coil at the site of the leak, and you must knead the putty until the color is uniform. Then apply the putty to the site of the hole and allow to cure fully.
The Perfect Tool for Emergency Repairs
When working on air conditioner leak repair, reliable products are essential. SmartSeal External is a product that you can trust to work at a moment’s notice. It creates a quick seal, ideal for emergency repairs, and can be left on the system or removed if necessary. Because SmartSeal External is packaged in small, easy-to-carry packages, it is the perfect tool to keep in your truck, on your tool belt, or in your toolbox. Stash a few packages in your glove box — you never know when you might need it!
