Springtime is here – which means it’s time to take your AC for a test drive.
One thing to notice as you test your AC is the temperature of the air coming from your vents. If it’s warmer than what you think it should be – or if you notice ice forming on your outside central air conditioner lines after you’ve run it for a few hours – your cooling system could be low on refrigerant. Low refrigerant can your system to perform poorly – or not at all.
Refrigerant levels typically drop due to leaks in your compressor that often aren’t visible to the naked eye; a technician typically checks for leaks during an annual tune-up if they see that refrigerant levels are low.
If you run your air conditioner and find that it’s not blowing cold air, a refrigerant recharge may be all you need. But if you find that you’ve had to recharge your system several times in recent years, it’s probably time to consider upgrading to a new, high efficiency model .
