Every repair starts with an assessment.

When you book your refrigerant repair service, your personal, trained technician will come to your home to begin the evaluation process to diagnose the issue.

During your evaluation your technician will carefully examine all components of your air conditioner, not just the refrigerant housing, but also the coils and the compressor looking for signs of damage and the source of the leak. This evaluation will quickly give you the best repair options.

At the end of your evaluation, they will then present your personalized, comprehensive quote best suited to your repair needs.

Request Service


We guarantee to have your personal, detailed, no-obligation quote delivered to you no later than 24 hours after your initial evaluation.

All recommendations are thoroughly explained and consider the age and condition of your AC unit, as well as the area surrounding your unit.

Finally, with Rainforest's Up-Front Guarantee you can rest assured that the price you're quoted is the price you pay, and that you are fully briefed on the scope of work before any leak detection is started.

Request Service


We're proud to offer same-day refrigerant leak repair, which means once your quote is approved, your technician can get right to work.

Your personal technician will disconnect your air conditioner, identify the source of the refrigerant leak and have it repaired within 1-2 hours, and then handle any moisture damage that might have occurred due to the leak. No matter the time frame, your technician will make sure to maintain a clean and orderly work space (wearing booties and laying down floor coverings) with minimal interruption to your day to day life.

Once the refrigerant leak is taken care of, and your AC unit has been reconnected, your technician will troubleshoot to ensure any issues caused by the leaks have been addressed, then they will top up your refrigerant and clean your filters.

And with Rainforest's Put Back Policy you can rest assured, when we clean up, we leave your space better than we found it, guaranteed!

Signs of a Refrigerant Leak

Bubbling/hissing coming from the unit.

If you are hearing bubbling or hissing sounds coming from your air conditioner, this could be a sign you have a refrigerant leak effecting the coils and other components of your unit, causing them to overheat. Call our team right away if you are experiencing these sounds.

Ice on evaporator coils

Ice build up on your unit's evaporator coils is one of the most common signs of a refrigerant leak. Low refrigerant levels cause the pressure in your unit to drop, lowering the temperature around your coils. When the moisture in your air passes over the coils, it freezes. Evaporator coils are one of the most important components of your AC unit, so if you are experiencing freezing, give our experienced team a call today!

Extended running or cooling cycles

Extended running or cooling cycles is another sign that you may have a refrigerant leak. Without refrigerant, your AC unit thinks the room is warmer than it is, causing it to constantly run. Constantly running or cooling cycles will quickly burn out your motor, which can turn into a costly repair or full replacement service.

Poor energy efficiency

Like we briefly discussed above, low refrigerant levels can cause your air conditioner to run continuously, which reduces efficiency and increases your utility bills.

Warm or humid air coming from your AC unit

If there is warm and/or humid air coming from your air conditioner, you have low refrigerant levels, which may be caused by a leak. Give Rainforest Plumbing & Air a call today, and we'll get your AC unit back to blowing cool air as soon as possible.

Put Back Guarantee

Unlike other HVAC and Plumbing companies, when we are done, we have a skilled crews that can handle all of your restoration or “put-back” needs. We don’t just run in and out for a quick fix and leave you hanging with the aftermath.

Our crews are ready and waiting to put your property back just the way it was prior to the repair, complete with finishing and painting, excavation and concrete. Call us today to learn more.

How Do We Find Your Leak?

The team at Rainforest Plumbing & Air uses the latest tools and technology to quickly find the cause of your refrigerant leak.

We can detect leaks using a soap solution, a halide torch, or dye interception. We can also isolate a specific component of your AC system and use pressurization on the system with dry nitrogen gas.

Once your refrigerant leak is controlled, we will complete any necessary repairs, recharge your system with refrigerant, and get your AC unit back up and running!

Frequently Asked Questions About Refrigerant Leaks

How much does leak detection cost?

Refrigerant leak detection cost greatly depends on the severity of the leak. Give us a call today for your no obligation quote. The price you're quoted is the price you pay, so there are no surprises.

JB has always been a very polite, professional and expert when he comes to my multiple unit facility to service our AC units.


I had a really good AC technician and he helped me so much with my AC thermostat and cleaning my coils, and he also gave me really good information about the membership.
