Recently, our a/c component seemed to lose a superb deal of its cooling power.
- The decline in coolness was gradual, but eventually, it was apparent.
It’s almost prefer I was in denial at first, however first, I just figured it was in our imagination. Then, I just figured that I needed to turn the temperature down even though that same temperature was perfectly fantastic not so long ago. At last, I had to acproficiency that something was up. The air filter was clean and the temperature control was in working order, as far as I could tell. Not actually knowing what else I could do, I called out our Heating & A/C contractor. He did some inspecting here and there. It wasn’t long before he figured out the problem. I had a refrigerant leak. For a moment, I wondered what on earth our refrigerator had to do with any of this. Then, I sort of remembered that refrigerant is the same stuff that allows the a/c to cool the air in our home. I’m sure ecstatic that I did not blurt that out! Anyway, it turns out it was an easy fix. He just needed to recharge the refrigerant to the proper levels and seal the leak. It was all done in a jiffy, and after that I was able to turn on our a/c component and it felt prefer the air was cooler than ever! It felt great, and it got me thinking. I sure wish some of the other problems in our life were such an easy fix!
