Is Refrigerant Dangerous?

Monday, March 14th, 2022

One of the first questions we get from homeowners about their ACs refrigerant leak is whether or not it’s dangerous to have in your home. Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat, refrigerant leaks are not the same as gas leaks from a furnace. The two materials are very different and being near one is not like being near the other.

Gas leaks are flammable, and usually if gas is leaking from a furnace, chances are likely that other fumes like carbon monoxide are leaking as well. With a refrigerant leak, the only thing that’s leaking is refrigerant, which is neither flammable nor fatal. However, refrigerant is not a good thing to inhale and it can cause problems for you in more ways than one.

If you’re nervous about a refrigerant leak, or you’re unsure that you have a leak in your home, be sure to call our team for AC repair or to schedule air conditioning maintenance in Apopka, FL.
