Signs You Need Refrigerant Leak Repair
The sooner you spot a refrigerant leak, the sooner you can get it fixed and avoid further complications. The most obvious signs of a refrigerant leak include:
- Reduced energy-efficiency: That’s because the lack of refrigerant will cause the condenser coils to work harder to cool air.
- Reduced cooling: If an AC starts struggling to cool rooms, it could be due to low refrigerant levels from a leak.
- Ice or frost on the evaporator coil: Low refrigerant levels will lead to the evaporator coil being unable to absorb heat. The result is moisture formation on the coil that turns into ice.
- Sound of escaping gas: This is the most obvious sign of a refrigerant leak. You’ll hear the sound of Freon escaping from the leaking spot.
When you notice any of the above, don’t hesitate to contact us. At Premier Service Company, Inc., we care about our customer’s comfort. That’s why we offer 24/7 emergency services throughout Tuscaloosa to repair a wide variety of AC issues, including refrigerant leaks.
Can’t I Fix a Refrigerant Leak Myself?
You could, but we wouldn’t recommend it unless you have the required expertise and tools for the job.
Why? First, being directly exposed to the refrigerant can prove to be a health hazard. Instead of risking your health, it’s best to let professionals like us handle such issues.
Second, a Freon recharge isn’t enough to fix a leak. Merely replacing the Freon will only lead to it leaking out again, leading to you paying extra for repeat services.
To effectively fix a leak, our expert technicians will first identify the leaking spots and the cause of the leaks. After fixing the leak and its cause, we’ll provide a Freon replacement to restore your cooling unit to optimal performance.

Preventing Freon Leak
Freon leaks can be caused by vibrations weakening the joints and connections of the refrigerant piping. They may also be caused by formic acid damaging the copper lines.
Whatever the cause is, you can stop it in its tracks and prevent significant damage by contacting us for regular AC maintenance. As part of our maintenance services, we’ll clean the cooling unit and repair potential leaks before they turn into full-blown problems.
