How Can I Tell If My Air Conditioner Is Low on Freon?

Maintenance agreements help you keep your Freon levels in check.

AC maintenance check

If you have explored maintenance agreements or already have one in place, you’ll know that Freon checks are included in your maintenance agreement (if not, they should be!). Freon is a fluid that absorbs heat from your indoor air and transports it outside, cooling down the air. Then the cooled air is pushed back into your home for you to experience the comforts of a cool home during the hot summer months.

With summer now in full-swing, it is important to be certain your air conditioner remains in tip-top shape to keep you and your family cool throughout the remaining hot days of the season. Keeping the Freon levels in check is essential to the health and function of your A/C.

Some of the ways to tell if you need Freon are:

  1. Your registers are blowing out warm air instead of cool or cold.
  2. Your home is taking a really long time to cool.
  3. You notice ice building up on your coils.
  4. Your electric bills are higher than they should be.

If you notice any of the above, it is time to contact a professional HVAC service to locate and fix your system’s Freon leak and add more Freon if needed. Freon is an important part of your air conditioning systems and if it isn’t taken care of properly, you can expect to experience unnecessary breakdowns.
