This is what happens when you don’t get regular HVAC maintenance

He was actually surprised that no other professionals noticed that before and he wondered if I was getting my regular HVAC maintenance

I honestly had no idea that I had a major issue with the A/C system before firing it up to test it in the spring season. The air was moving through the system alright, but the air was not very cold at all. I thought maybe if I just waited for a little while, everything would turn out fine. Well, things didn’t turn out alright and I realized that I needed to call an HVAC professional to check everything out. I was due to get the tune-up anyway so I decided to go for that. Well, it turned out upon inspection of the system, one of the refrigerant lines had a serious leak in it. It looked like the pipe actually burst because it was exposed to the elements. The HVAC professional told me to make sure to keep my distance as I didn’t want to inhale any fumes coming from the refrigerant leak. He said that refrigerant poisoning is serious business and this is why only qualified personnel are permitted to acquire refrigerant to charge A/C systems. He was able to clean up the mess and repair the leak by replacing the piping and making sure it was well insulated. He said that was the issue because for some reason that line was not insulated, and he said that was a bad move to make. He was actually surprised that no other professionals noticed that before and he wondered if I was getting my regular HVAC maintenance. I had to be honest, it had been a few years because my finances were always tight. At least I was getting it fixed now.
