We’ve written a number of times about the troubles an air conditioning system will run into when it loses its refrigerant charge because of leaks. When leaks are left unrepaired, an undercharged refrigerant will not only lose cooling power, it will eventually break down from a burnt-out compressor. At the first sign of an AC running a reduced refrigerant charge, call a Trinity, FL air conditioning contractor to look at the system and get it fixed.
But this problem happens in reverse as well. A central air conditioning system is designed to operate at a specific refrigerant charge and pressure. If there is too much refrigerant in the system, the AC is in danger—the same danger of a catastrophic compressor breakdown.
