Understanding Freon and Its Role in Your HVAC System

What is Freon and Why is It Important?

Freon is a refrigerant used in air conditioning systems to cool the air inside your home. If you notice your AC isn’t cooling effectively, it might be due to low Freon levels. At Capital Plumbing, Heating & Contracting Corp., we offer professional Freon recharge services to ensure your system operates efficiently.

Signs You Need a Freon Recharge

  1. Warm Air: If your AC blows warm air, it could indicate low Freon levels.
  2. Long Cooling Times: An AC that takes longer to cool your home might need more Freon.
  3. Ice on Coils: Ice buildup on the evaporator coils is a common sign of low Freon.
