Unfortunately, most AC Freon leaks are undetectable by homeowners because the gas is relatively odorless. When you call us for air conditioner service, we'll check your compressor for a leak and we'll check the Freon level. If a leak is detected, we'll make recommendations about how to handle it.
Physical damage to the compressor or a line must be repaired before recharging your system because Freon is dangerous to you and the environment. Additionally, if the damage isn't fixed, the gas will continue to leak and require more frequent charging.
