10 May 2016
Your outdoor compressor unit is a vital component of your air conditioning system.

An air conditioner's refrigerant is usually recycled. As a result, the only times that the system needs its refrigerant to be topped up tends to be when there is a refrigerant leak. And given that low refrigerant levels can lead to problems such as evaporator coil icing, refilling the refrigerant is necessary if you want to maintain the efficiency of your air conditioning system.
However, while having enough refrigerant in an air conditioning system is a must for the system to be effective at making a home comfortable, having too much of it can end up destroying the system.

Today, there is an option that provides improved efficiency while still properly disposing of these gases.
