But how do you know if you have a refrigerant leak? Well, the “good” news is that there are some pretty clear warning signs that you may be dealing with a leak. The bad news is that any given AC issue can have a few different potential causes, and ignoring what you think is a “minor” issue could have some very serious consequences.
