Why Your AC Installation Calls for Triple Evacuation

Monday, May 7th, 2018

working-on-ACCentral air conditioning systems, heat pumps, and ductless mini splits share a few key attributes in common. Chief among these similarities is the fact that all of these systems us refrigerant in order to facilitate the cooling process. Refrigerant is a heat transfer fluid that changes its physical state from liquid to gas and back again relatively easily. It evaporates in the indoor evaporator coil, removing heat from the air in the home, and is condensed outdoors to release that heat.

Now, low refrigerant levels due to an improper initial charge (a mistake that we simply do not make) or a leak is the first issue that most people would associate with refrigerant. It is not the only one, though. Quite often during new system installations, underqualified technicians will fail to properly clean out the AC line sets. This can leave behind a number of contaminants that can cause problems for your AC in Rome, GA. That is why triple evacuation cleaning is the way to go.
