Your HVAC system is a closed-loop system, meaning it shouldn’t leak. If it does, that means something has failed. So how do you know if you’re leaking Freon?

First, how does your home feel? If your system doesn’t feel like it’s cooling as well as it should on a hot summer day, that’s your first indication.

Maybe it cools fine at night or early in the morning, but it’s not reaching the temperature you like in the middle of the day. That’s a sign that you may have a refrigerant leak.

Another sign of a Freon leak is your system freezing up. If it’s low enough on refrigerant at night, when it’s trying to catch up, the unit will freeze. You’ll see ice on the refrigerant lines and there won’t be air blowing out of the vents.

It could be a mistake on the manufacturer’s side, or it could’ve been improperly installed. Give the On Time Experts a call at 469-336-3435. We can take a look at it to identify exactly where the leak is and give you an upfront cost.
