The most common problem for Addison homeowners is a dirty filter. Most customers that place a service call don’t know that their coils are frozen. A frozen evaporator coil can be thawed out if it is frozen. The easiest way to thaw out your air conditioning unit is to turn off your breakers. It can take a few hours to thaw out your unit. If your filter is dirty, replace your filter and thaw out you a/c unit. An HVAC system that is low on refrigerant can also give you a similar problem. Air conditioning units are designed to operate at specific freon levels. If the operating refrigerant levels fall below a certain level, your air conditioning unit will freeze up. The most common place to start looking for a refrigerant leak is the evaporator coil in your attic. You can first do a visual leak inspection as a Heights homeowner, to possibly find the freon leak. Depending on how large the refrigerant leak is, you can sometimes hear or smell the refrigerant leak. Freon leaks can develop in the exterior and interior of the air conditioning unit. Oil leaks on the copper pipes are good indications that a leak might be present in that area. You can also remove the front panel of the coil unit, to check if you have any oil leaks from within the coil. You might have to remove all insulation from the copper pipes to thoroughly inspect copper pipes for refrigerant leaks. If you can’t find the freon leak, you’ll need to call your local air conditioning repair contractor for assistance. The HVAC company we’ll have to bring an electronic leak detector to find the freon leak. Another method for locating small freon leaks is a nitrogen leak test. The technician we’ll have to pressurize the system with high-pressure gas to locate the leak.
