Never Top Off Refrigerant

When our A/C system started running inconsistently plus creating overheated patches in numerous rooms, my hubby said that he’d take a look at the unit, but he’s a certainly handy person, so I trusted that he’d be able to find something wrong plus then repair it; Although I trusted him, I still like to do my own research to see what other homeowners say about similar issues.

My hubby finds it discouraging when I do this because a lot of the time I end up going down a rabbit hole filled with negative or misleading information! This time though, I just wanted to see what I could find, however when my hubby told me that he needed to top off the refrigerant levels, my ears perked up plus my alarm bells began ringing.

I had learn on an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company’s website that filling refrigerant was unnecessary plus never the choice for fixing an A/C system. My hubby thought what I’d learn was wrong, however I assured him that the information was factual. I was so convinced about what I believed that I called the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company on the spot plus asked them. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company backed me up plus told me that the refrigerant should never need replacing unless there was an obvious leak. In that situation, an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional was needed to patch it. When my hubby heard this, he agreed to hire an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional to come service our A/C system to repair the overheated patches because he didn’t know what was causing it.
