If you have noticed a sudden change in your A/C output, you may have a leak in a metal component. These leaks can be caused by accidents or other damage, or corrosion from moisture in the system. These type of leaks require a permanent seal in the area of the leak, whether in the condenser, evaporator or any other metal component. Most leak seal products contain a substance which cycles through the system as a liquid and reacts with moisture present at the area of the leak and congeals, effectively sealing the leak. To use this type of sealer, it is recommended that the system first be fully evacuated , the receiver/drier or accumulator be replaced, and a vacuum is pulled to remove any remaining moisture from the system. If these steps are not followed, the sealer can react with moisture which is in the system causing clumps which can restrict refrigerant flow, clog the receiver drier or accumulator—and even damage any recovery equipment used on the system.
