Why leak detection is vital to low costs
The commercial refrigeration service known as leak detection is, arguably, the most important service we offer at Source Refrigeration. After all, your commercial refrigeration systems are practically useless without refrigerant.
Refrigerant is vital to the circular process that allows your refrigeration equipment to keep products cold. Its ability to go from a gas to a liquid and back again also allows refrigerant to transfer heat, and the transfer of heat is what makes commercial refrigeration systems useful in the first place.
Refrigerants have always been costly to purchase, but since government regulations are phasing out the most common refrigerant, R22, refrigerant has become even more expensive. For example, let’s say one of your system uses 20 pounds of refrigerant, and all of it needed to be replaced after a leak. Depending on the type of refrigerant you need, you could be looking at prices between $8 to $24 per pound. That means that to refill the 20 pounds of refrigerant in one piece of equipment, you’ll have to spend between $160 and $480.
In addition to the high cost of refrigerant, not all service companies have the knowledge to work with many of the alternative and natural refrigerants replacing R22. However, Source Refrigeration’s service team can help you. In fact, our technicians are trained to work with refrigerants such as:
