Refrigerant Leak Detection & Repair

Professional, Licensed Service for Refrigerant Leaks

Central air conditioning systems use refrigerant to cool the air, and refrigerant requires specialized handling and is subject to EPA guidelines. At DS Heating & Air, our experienced technicians are trained and equipped to detect dangerous refrigerant leaks. If your system is not cooling properly, you may be losing refrigerant. Unfortunately this problem can reduce the performance and lifespan of your system, and may eventually lead to other issues like frozen coils and lines, reduced cooling, or even compressor failure.

Leak Detection Methods

The professionals at DS Heating & Air use best-practice, EPA-approved techniques to diagnose and repair your refrigerant leak. Depending on the situation, the diagnostic process may include:

  • Comprehensive visual inspections of your system & its components
  • High-viscosity liquid refrigerant leak detectors
  • State-of-the-art electronic refrigerant leak detectors
  • Ultraviolet (UV) leak detection methods
  • Halide or nitrogen testing

Once we find your refrigerant leak, we will carefully repair it to restore your home’s comfort and safety. If the reason for your refrigerant leak is an aging, compromised system, it may be time to consider upgrading to high-efficiency HVAC equipment. High-efficiency equipment uses the industry’s new R-410a chlorine-free refrigerant, which is replacing the less environmentally friendly R-22.

Today’s energy-efficient models also offer advanced cooling methods, money-saving operation, and robust features. DS Heating & Air will recommend the best refrigerant leak repair or system replacement option for your needs and budget.
