Many companies will say they can repair Freon leaks on site. This IS False!
A Freon leak must be found and welded closed, the use of a torch is required.
This is the only proper way to repair the leak in your air conditioner or PTAC unit.
Also it is possible that the escaped R-22 Freon may cause a health risk. Although that is rare.
Companies will also claim to come and clean your air conditioning or PTAC unit on-site. Usually for a low cost fee.
Look at the list of
we take for an average cooling unit in need of cleaning.
Would you do all those steps yourself for the price they offer?
I doubt it, and you should too.
Most important is that if your unit has
in it, there never
is any safe way to remove it on site.
Besides of all the steps we take, the cooling unit needs to completely dry prior to being plugged into the outlet to ensure no electrical damage to the unit.
