Freon may sound like a spooky ghost in your home, but freon is actually a colorless, odorless gas that has been used in air conditioning systems for many years. It is the brand name for a type of refrigerant that is known as chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) or hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC). These refrigerants have been used in air conditioning and refrigeration systems for many years because they have a low boiling point, which allows them to easily transform from a liquid to a gas and back again.
In a residential home air conditioning unit, the freon is used to absorb heat from inside the home and transmit it outside. This allows the air inside the home to cool down and circulate. The freon is constantly circulating through the air conditioning system, changing state from liquid to gas as it absorbs heat.
Routine maintenance of your air conditioning unit is essential to ensure that it runs efficiently and effectively, and checking the freon levels is a key component of that maintenance. If the freon levels are too low, it can cause the air conditioning unit to work harder than it needs to and can cause the system to break down entirely. Checking the freon levels regularly can help you to avoid costly repairs and replacements.
