Proper Air Conditioning Refrigerant Levels

If you own a central air conditioner or heat pump, you should know that recent field studies suggest that approximately 75% of installed cooling equipment may have incorrect amount of refrigerant.

Incorrect refrigerant level can lower efficiency by 5 to 20% and can ultimately cause premature component failure, resulting in costly repairs that could have been prevented. A good contractor will use one of three methods, recommended by equipment manufacturers, to verify the correct refrigerant level. These methods include super-heat, sub-cooling, or weigh.

But wait. There’s more. Your air conditioning system is just that, a system. As such refrigerant charge levels can be hard or impossible to get right unless technicians first know if there is sufficient air flow across the indoor coil.

AirOne Heating and Air Conditioning solves all these charge vs. air flow problems with our Total Performance Diagnostic.
