Air Conditioner Refrigerant Service
Refrigerant for your air conditioning system, also known as Freon, is vital to the functionality of your cooling system. Without refrigerant in your cooling system, it is impossible for it to cool your home the way that it should. And in this humid Mississippi heat, this can leave you in a sweaty and uncomfortable situation! But you can keep your cool knowing that Yoder’s Heat & Air, LLC is here to take care of your air conditioner refrigerant in Hattiesburg, MS and surrounding cities.
Signs Your Freon is Low
Your house is taking an incredibly long time to cool down:
This is one of the tell-tale signs that you may need to replenish the Freon in your cooling system. Because the refrigerant absorbs the heat in your air, without enough of it, the heat then has nowhere else to go.
Your energy/electric bill is higher than normal:
Because of the lack of refrigerant, your air conditioner has to work overtime to cool down the flowing air, thus increasing your energy bill.
Ice buildup around the refrigerant line:
If you see ice on the copper line connected to the outdoor unit, you could be lacking refrigerant. When the refrigerant is low, the interior of the evaporator coil can become too cold, causing the cold liquid refrigerant to flow back into the refrigerant line. The moisture surrounding the refrigerant line then freezes up.
The liquid refrigerant eventually will make its way out to the compressor, which is considered the heart of the cooling system. The backflow can cause severe damage because liquids cannot be compressed. Once the refrigerant enters the compressor, it becomes heavily pressurized, and this pressure can be heavy enough to damage valves, rods, or any other component inside.
