Why Is Low Refrigerant a Major Concern?

There are many problems which may develop with whole-house cooling systems. Modern air conditioning systems are more efficient and reliable than ever before, which is a huge benefit to homeowners. However, there is no such thing as a 100% trouble-free air conditioner. You will encounter problems at some point, and refrigerant leaks are among the most common. Unless it is a major leak, though, the loss of refrigerant is not going to immediately cause your system to break down or stop cooling your home. Don’t let this fool you into thinking that refrigerant leaks, even minor ones, are not serious problems, though. You must schedule air conditioning repairs in Phoenix, AZ the moment you suspect that your refrigerant is low. When that moment arrives, contact Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning to schedule service. 

Air Not Sufficiently Cooled

Your air conditioner doesn’t really actively cool air in your home when it operates; instead, it uses refrigerant in order to facilitate the heat transfer process. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the air in your home, and the resulting cooled air is redistributed throughout your living space. Of course, less refrigerant in the system means less heat removal, leaving your AC to blow lukewarm air throughout your house. If you hope to cool your home effectively, it is absolutely necessary that your system has the right amount of refrigerant within.

Increased Operating Costs

We are guessing that you aren’t crazy about the idea of spending more money on a weaker performance from your air conditioning system, but that is precisely what you’ll find yourself doing if you do not have the right amount of refrigerant in your air conditioning system. Because your system is not functioning as effectively as it ought to, it will run more in an effort to sufficiently cool your home. In doing so, it will use more electricity than it should have to when cooling your home.

Compressor Failure

This is a major concern, so take note. You may be able to convince yourself that you can deal with subpar cooling or increased operating costs for the time being. However, you really don’t want your compressor to fail, which it will, because of overheating due to low refrigerant levels. If your compressor should break down entirely, you had better hope you have room in your budget for a costly replacement. Of course, you could also just dial our number to schedule AC repairs when you notice the signs of low refrigerant in the first place.

Roger came out on Thanksgiving Day to fix our unit. Turns out, our home builder completely shorted us on the amount of blown-in attic insulation (which you think a home inspector would have caught) and also our unit is too small for our house which is 4 years old. Roger took the time to explain all of this to us in detail and got our unit up and running. Thank you Roger!
