2. Your fifth tip. Tip #0005: Symptoms of Refrigerant Leak

I have put two pages for confirming refrigerant leak detection.

The pages are, simple leak detection methods, and skilled leak detection methods.

There are however, symptoms that could suggest refrigerant leak. These are;

  • Gradual decrease in cooling ability.

    Refrigerant leak is normally a slow process. Your AC will loose it's cooling ability as time goes by - if it is leaking.

  • Icing at the evaporator, might suggest insufficient refrigerant.

    Insufficient refrigerant will boil before outlet of the evaporator, and cause icing

NOTE: Refrigerant leak will cause these symptoms to occur.

BUT these symptoms do not necessarily mean refrigerant leak.

You will have to check on filter condition, evaporator cleanliness, fan operation, and proper charging
