Did you ever wonder what makes air conditioning so cool? Like, what is causing this air to come out of the vents so cool and refreshing? What is the magic behind being able to maintain your house’s temperature at 69 degrees when it’s 89 degrees outside? Well, the answer in short is refrigerant.
Refrigerant is what cools down the air in your home and removes it’s humidity.
It’s a liquid agent that resides within the coils of an HVAC system. Refrigerant is extremely important when it comes to your air conditioner having the ability to cool down the air in your home. It’s pretty much one of the most important aspects of your air conditioner. As such, having an insufficient amount of refrigerant or having any problems or complications regarding the refrigerant, will cause your air conditioning unit to stop working correctly. You may notice that the air coming from your air vents isn’t very cold at all, no matter how high you set the thermostat. This can be quite frustrating. When your air conditioner isn’t doing the one job that it’s supposed to do, it’s high time to call out an HVAC technician! When you suspect that there’s a problem with your refrigerant or there is a lack of refrigerant, your condenser might be working overtime. That is another reason why it’s a good idea to call out an HVAC technician when you suspect refrigerant problems, as an overworked condenser can cause more serious problems! Your HVAC technician will be able to determine whether or not there is a refrigerant leak or other similar problem.
