Does a freon leak mean I must get a new home AC unit?

An air conditioning repair company technician was at my house to charge the freon in my AC. He told me that I’ve got a leak & that I’ll have to get a whole new unit. This seems a little far-fetched to me, especially because my unit is only 10 years old. Can’t the leak just be fixed?

I have R-22 freon refrigerant in my air conditioner can you still charge it?

One other possibility which he may have been thinking but did not say, is if it is an R22 refrigerant system, that is costing hundreds of $ to fill now that it is going out of production, and will cost more in the future, so he may have figured you were better off with a system that uses the replacement refrigerants.

Yes the cost of R22 freon refrigerant is being phased out and expensive. Did your air conditioning repair person talk to you about the drop in refrigerant replacements for R-22?

What Causes refrigerant Leaks?

There are many reasons for a refrigerant leak to happen, and depending on what your issue is, this is something that you need to learn more about. You want to ensure that you feel confident regarding having the issue resolved, but also that it is not something that is horrible.

Refrigerant Leak Detection 

Having refrigerant leaks makes anyone scared, because this can cause further problems inside the home and with the unit. When it comes to recognizing a refrigerant leak however, then this is something that has to be done through a professional.

Electronic Refrigerant Freon Leak Detection 

This is one of the most common methods out there that are used through professionals. This is a method that cannot be done through the use of an electronic device that can be found in the home.

UV Light Refrigerant Leak Detection Method 

UV light methods can provide you with a better idea of the size and location of the leak. This is something that you want to do when it comes to not knowing how bad the system is leaking. You want to make sure that larger leaks are something that are taken care of sooner, rather than later. This is due to the fact that you want to ensure that your system is working in the best possible way. 

Pressurized Bubble Leak Method 

This is when the air conditioning system is pressurized with nitrogen and liquid is poured around the tubing throughout the unit and bubbles would indicate that there is a leak somewhere in the system.

Ice Machine Cleaning & Maintenance. 

We regularly get calls for ice machine cleaning after they fail the health department inspection. The inspector finds fungus even after the staff has regularly cleaned the machine with chemicals. The only thing worse than failing an inspection is giving your patrons food poisoning.

Most people think of cleaning and ice machine as running chemicals through it once a month which is fine for staff to do but true maintenance and cleaning needs to be done by an experienced professional.  Ice machine maintenance and cleaning should not be left to staff. 

Chemical cleaning simply removes calcium and mineral buildup in the water flow area. Ice machines need to be disassembled and scrubbed with brushes to remove black fungus buildup.  We regularly replace the water distribution tubes which have fungus and mineral buildup in them.  That fungus buildup can make your clientele sick when they get home.

Dust and dirt build-up on the condenser and compressor increases heat buildup reducing the effectiveness causing longer cycles and producing less ice. Staff has no idea of the pressures and calibration necessary for the ice machine to run properly.  And they don’t have the testing equipment. Only an experienced technician has that and knows when parts need to be replaced.

Besides the regular monthly cleaning ice machines need to be professionally cleaned at least once a year and twice a year provides the safety your patrons need to help ensure they keep coming back.
