Freon Leak Repair Kit may be the answer to the problem of Freon leaks in you air conditioner that keep costing you money every cooling season. One of the biggest headaches people have with air conditioners is the system losing refrigerant though a small leak in the system. Larger leaks are typically easier to find in a air conditioning system because the will leave evidence such as a oil stain, a visual hole or crack in a coil, and in some cases when trying to add refrigerant you may even here the hissing sound of the freon escaping. 

Larger freon leaks will most likely need to be soldered or even replace the evaporator or condenser coils. If your system loses all the freon do to a larger leak it will need to be evacuated to remove any moisture and none condensibles from the system. This is done by putting a vacuum pump on the system that sucks all the contaminant's  out. If this is not done your system will not function properly even after recharging it. Many times when you have a smaller leak in your system the technician will spend time looking for a leak that can not be found and just add freon to the air conditioner only to have it leak out again by the next cooling season. This can end up costing you hundreds  of dollars every year or two. The other problem with just adding freon is that before your air conditioner gets so low that you realize it your energy costs will be very high to run a system that is not fully charged. 

A simple and cost effective way to address smaller freon leaks is a freon leak repair kit that contains the hose, valve and sealant,  Now keep in mind this product is mainly for residential and commercial air conditioners that have leaks that loose the charge over year or more. When using the hose and access fitting connect onto the larger black or suction line at the condenser or outdoor unit and run the air conditioner. The compressor will them suck the sealant into the system and seal any small leaks though out the entire system. This product when used according to the instructions on the can is safe for your system with most types of freons and can be very effective. The cans in the kit are sized to be used on a systems up to five tons. This should cover most residential  
applications and many small commercial ones do to the fact the there are two cans in the kit totaling  10 tons of cooling if needed. You can check the size of your air conditioner by the make, model and serial number with a online search. Most homes under 4000 square feet will have a air conditioner less that five tons meaning you only need one can and hose that you can purchase at the link below.
