Spring is here, and among the other duties and tasks you need to perform for your home (such as spring cleaning and changing the batteries in the smoke alarms) comes the need to give your air conditioner a close look. You may not be using it often now, but in just a few weeks, it will likely see daily use and more. Now is a good time to schedule a maintenance session for your air conditioner: allowing a trained technician to take a close look and fix any problems before they get out of hand
Among the issues the technician checks for is the refrigerant levels in your system, and whether any refrigerant has leaked out of the system. There are a lot of misconceptions about refrigerant in your air conditioning system, and how it works to keep your home cool. Understanding that is key to understanding just how your system keeps your home cool.
