How to detect if Clitech heat pump refrigerant leak after long term delivery
Refrigerant(clitech heat pump use of R410A, R407 C or R410A) is colorless and odorless, you cannot identify a leak by simply looking. However, if the heat pump begins struggling to provide hot or cold air, this might be a signal of low refrigerant or a leak.
Check the pressure gauge outside heat pump casing. If pressure less than 2 bar, it shows heat pump has a leakage. Listen to the compressor in the outside unit. Compressors that run too often or for longer and longer periods of time, it can be a signal that refrigerant levels are low. When refrigerant less, the compressor must work harder to maintain performance.
What Should I Do If I Have a Freon Leak?
Contact a service technician immediately if you suspect the heat pump is leaking refrigerant. If inhaled, refrigerant can cause damage to lung tissue and suffocation. Only a certified technician can repair leaks and replace lost refrigerant.
