Well freon in the atmosphere is a gas until it is compressed inside your system so if your seeing a liquid then you can be sure its water. If it is dripping off your condeser when your air is on that is perfectly normal and you have nothing to worry about.

Air condtioner has a bad smell causing headache

Whether as a gaseous or liquid coolant, Freon aids in refrigeration, air conditioning and maintaining aerosol contents under pressure. Not only can this toxic chemical expose the earth to excessive ultraviolet rays, but the substance can also sicken those who inhale it in an enclosed atmosphere.

Detecting the signs and symptoms of a Freon leak will protect lives, ground water and air quality.
Cardiac arrhythmia can signify the presence of leaking Freon. A person without a history of irregular heartbeats might suddenly detect heart palpitations and faulty blood circulation upon exposure to a Freon leak. The blood circulation problems may also lead to numbness in the limbs.

General Illness
  • A Freon leak can cause nausea, headaches, bouts of regurgitation and general disorientation. Confused thinking and trouble walking or coordinating movements also may result. Severity of illness depends on the amount of Freon released and the length of time exposed. A fire department can provide solutions and guidance for anyone detecting a Freon leak and suffering from its effects.

    Air conditioner not pumping cold air..recently had system checked and freon added.

    More then likely your a/c system has a freon leak, have them check it with dye to fine the leak.

    Ac freon leak at hoses connecting to compressor are the seals easy to change

    The seals are relatively easy to replace, but the system must have the freon pumped out and captured before any such work is performed. Venting to atmosphere will get you a stiff fine if caught (at least in the USA). Hope this helps!

    Have a 2000 vw bug a/c blowing hot air bought a home kit to fill it and when i put the gauge on it spun the needle all the way around. need to know what that means

    Check to see if A/C clutch is engaging. If it is not engaging, the compressor is not starting which will prevent the freon from being sucked into the system.

    Look at the front of the ac compressor and have someone turn on the ac from inside the car. The front of the pulley(clutch) will spin when turned on.

    If it does not spin, the low pressure switch (LPS) is not satisfied. Meaning there is not enough freon in the system to operate the system. Probably means a significant leak.

    The LPS can be jumpered to cause the compressor to run (clutch to engaged) which will draw the freon in the system.

    The LPS is usually a two wire sensor on the suction of the compressor. (between evaporator and compressor) Unplug the sensor and install a jumper, this will engage the clutch.

    However, if it is empty the leak must be repaired.

    The capacity of the ac system will be on a label under the hood, do not overfill. Probably about 2 lbs. Local parts stores (Auto Zone and Advance) will have freon with stop leak. This may help the leak. They also make a freon with a UV dye. I always add a single can with dye so that if stop leak does not work I can find the leak in the future.

    The system should be filled until suction pressure is about 36 psi.

    Air conditioner blow warm air after freeon

    you could have a leak in the ac system which would be why you had to add freon. take it to a repair shop and ask them to check fo rleaks because adding more freon wont fix your issue if there is a leak.

    My ac doesnt work in my 2001 tahoe. i bought freon for it. the compressor is not kicking on when i turn the ac on, but the gage shows in the red when i hook it up to try and put freon in it. i shot a...

    the a/c system needs a minimum pressure before the system will run. the system must have a leak so just buying freon may last a day or a few months depending on the size of the leak. also leaking freon into the air is ozone depleating, it should be recovered properly.

    the system needs to be recoved of all freon. vacuum to -30psi held checked for leaks. (uv dye or nitrogen and soapy water). leaks fixed. vacuum to evacuate moisture and air. refilled with proper amount of freon (too much or too little make the air not as cold).
