Yes, air conditioner leaks can be fixed. The first question is, what type of leak is it, a refrigerant leak or a water leak. A typical water leak occurs when there is a lot of condensation, so water is constantly dripping into the catch pan. This water is then directed outside by the system, or occasionally it will leak.
Finding refrigerant leaks accurately can be difficult, due in part to the fact that there are several types of refrigerant leaks. The most common type of leak is known as a standing leak (SL). When the air conditioner is turned off, an SL can be detected. Temperature dependent leaks (TDL) occur when there is a condenser blockage, during the defrosting period or in high ambient air. These occur in the presence of intense heat. Pressure dependent leaks (PDLs) are discovered as pressure builds up in the cooling system.
If you suspect your AC has a leak, contact a professional like Doug’s Service Company to inspect your unit. If it is leaking we’d be happy to fix your leaking AC.
