How Much Does an Air Conditioner Freon Leak Test Cost?

If you know you have a leak in your air conditioner, a contractor will more than likely run a leak test to determine where the leak is coming from.  Most of the time, small leaks, known as champagne leaks to contractors, will form on the evaporator coil, which is usually the most common spot.  This freon is a heated gas while in the coil and can leak from tinier holes.  While it’s uncommon, the leak, which will be in the form of a liquid, can also happen on the outside of the unit.   Regardless of the leak, it can be harmful to the environment and can do damage to the system is left untreated.
