If you ever hear a so-called “HVAC technician” tell you that it’s time to give your air conditioner a refrigerant refill, run the other direction as fast as you can! This technician either has no idea what they’re talking about or they’re trying to pull a fast one on you.

Unfortunately, people are often confused about how refrigerant in an air conditioning system works. They often assume that refrigerant is a type of fuel and the AC will eventually run low on it. Like an automobile, it needs to have more fuel put in to keep it going.

This isn’t how refrigerant works at all. An AC may at some point require more refrigerant, but this is a repair, not a regular task. We’ll explain below to help you understand when you may need more refrigerant, and why most of the time you won’t.

Since most people don’t know the inner workings of their home air conditioning systems, they may think the appearance of ice along the evaporator coil is something normal. After all, the AC blows out air that feels frigid, as if it were blown across an Arctic landscape. So shouldn’t ice be a normal byproduct of the air conditioner cooling down a house?

The answer is no, not at all.

When an air conditioner is running properly, ice will never appear on it. If ice does show up on the evaporator coil (the spot where it will start) it means that something is wrong with the system. If this happens to your air conditioner, you will probably need to call for air conditioning repair in Akron, OH.

But aside from the air conditioner suffering from a catastrophic breakdown, how will you know when it’s time to leave aside AC repair in Akron, OH, and arrange for a new installation?

We can help!
