The Function of Air Conditioner Refrigerant
From your car to your mini-fridge, every system that offers low temperatures needs some type of coolant to create that frosty air. Refrigerant is the main factor in your AC’s cooling operations.
This chemical sometimes referred to by the brand name “Freon,” cycles from liquid to gas and back to its original form. This transitional process allows for cooling to occur.
While helpful for climate control, refrigerants can be hazardous to pets and humans if it leaks from your equipment.
How Does a Refrigerant Leak Happen?
Two common misconceptions about refrigerants are that they run out over time and can go bad (like oil in your car). As long as your AC system is tightly sealed, refrigerant can be used over and over again, cycling back and forth from gas to liquid indefinitely.
However, refrigerant loss can happen anytime during this process if your system from:
- Tiny punctures
- Poor installation
- Factory defects

The Downsides and Dangers of Refrigerant Leaks
Refrigerants appear in liquid and gas form, resulting in a chemical that’s dangerous if exposed to the outside world. Keeping it carefully sealed up where its meant to be will save you from:
- HEALTH HAZARDS: Extended exposure can lead to nausea, headaches and death. Avoid breathing refrigerants!
- ENVIRONMENT RISKS: Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are the gaseous compound used as refrigerant. It is potentially detrimental to our atmosphere.
- POOR PERFORMANCE: A leak can manifest in your AC with inefficiency, but can lead to major malfunction. Ignoring the problem can lead to significant damage.
