That is why we’ve recommended that you get your heating replacement and/or maintenance out of the way now, before you really need to put your heater into rotation.

How Often Should I Be Adding Refrigerant to My Air Conditioning System?

July 24th, 2016

If you are wondering if you should be adding refrigerant to your whole-house cooling system, the answer is no. Never. Air conditioning systems don’t consume refrigerant the way that a car consumes gasoline. Instead, the refrigerant is — or should be — held in a closed loop system. It is not burned up or otherwise used by the AC, and it should have no means of escape from the refrigerant loop.

This isn’t always the case, of course, and you may indeed encounter low refrigerant levels at some point. If and when you do, you just need to dial our number to have the problem resolved. We’ll get to the root of the issue, completing any necessary air conditioning repairs in Ludlow, VT. Continue Reading
