Certain issues in your home air conditioning system could be signs that AC refrigerant line repair is needed. Refrigerant is the chemical lifeblood of air conditioning. A central air-conditioning system continuously circulates refrigerant between the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser coil through insulated copper tubing.
