What Is Refrigerant?
Refrigerant is what your AC uses to cool the air in your home. It can come in liquid or gas form. Its function is to absorb heat from the atmosphere, making it possible for your AC to produce cool air. When refrigerant works together with your evaporator coils and the other components found in your air handler, you can expect to enjoy the cool, crisp air you know and love.
There are several types and brands of refrigerant. If you have done your research, you may be familiar with R-22 refrigerant. The reason it’s so important to know this is because R-22 refrigerant is being slowly phased out of use due to federal regulations. If you’re not sure what type of refrigerant your AC uses, call us. We can inspect your system and let you know how these changes will affect you.

Recharging Your AC
If your AC isn’t blowing cold, you may be wondering if you need freon replacement. When you have a leak, a freon recharge is necessary to get your AC blowing cool again. Recharging isn’t exactly what it sounds like. When technicians use the term recharge, what they really mean is that your AC needs a refrigerant refill.
You should always call a professional for a refill after your AC has malfunctioned or started acting strangely. When we perform any maintenance or air handler related repair, we will check on your refrigerant levels to make sure they’re where they need to be. If you have a leak, you may also need to repair a component of your AC and refill your system. Luckily, the expert technicians at Cooper’s Plumbing & Air can handle the whole process for you.
