It’s always a good time to evaluate the performance of your air conditioner. You might be more aware of the quality of operation over the summer, but some attention prior to the start of the season allows early detection of common concerns such as refrigerant leaks. Holt Plumbing & Heating, Inc. is happy to help. Our NATE-certified technicians are trained and experienced in freon leak detection.

Freon Leak Detection Services

Refrigerant lines degrade over time. Because the air conditioner’s refrigerant is consistently under high pressure, a leak needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. The bigger the extent of the leak, the more expensive the repair. At Holt Plumbing & Heating, Inc., we highly recommend annual tune-ups where we complete a thorough inspection and pressure tests. We catch leaks at the earliest possibility and take effective action.

Are you suspicious of a freon refrigerant leak? Here are some telltale signs:

  • Bubbling or hissing sounds – Strange sounds coming from the outdoor unit during operation often indicate a refrigerant leak.
  • Higher utility bills – Inefficient and longer operation are often caused by low refrigerant levels.
  • Ice on evaporator coils – Ice crystals forming on the outdoor evaporator coil is a warning sign.
  • Insufficient cooling – The system can’t keep up on those especially hot summer days in West Des Moines, IA and surrounding areas.
  • Lengthy run times – Longer cooling cycles indicate that the system is struggling to meet demands.
  • Sticky conditions – A refrigerant leak compromises the air conditioner’s dehumidification capabilities.

For freon leak detection, call on Holt Plumbing & Heating, Inc.!

Even well-maintained air conditioners can suffer a leak eventually. Environmental damage or old age can result in necessary repairs and recharging. Depending on the remaining lifespan, it may be wise to replace the cooling system. Holt Plumbing & Heating, Inc. assists in determining leaks as well as the right course of action.

"I highly recommend Holt! I needed my water heater replaced, and they came out and took the time to discuss all of my options and to make sure that I fully understood everything about the project. They did quality work, with all of the plumbing in traditional copper. That was important to me because I didn't want any of that PEX in my home! My entire basement looks cleaner and tidier because of the work they did! I was also very impressed that they didn't talk down to me as a woman. I like to do my own appliance maintenance and repairs when possible, and they respected my desire to understand everything about the installation and the prospective maintenance into the future."


"The best experience you could ever ask for. Nick is very skilled and knowledgeable about his industry. We were in a challenging situation and Holt and Nick were there to help us. Nick is very professional, extremely polite and friendly and very skilled. Thank you all so very much"

"We had never heard of Holt Heating and Plumbing until today. We had an emergency and needed service immediately and Holt was available. Israel was our technician and he was amazing! They will have our business for years to come! Thanks Israel and Holt!"


"Looking for a no fluff, no BS review of Holt? I got you... Over the past 15 years I've been a home owner, We've tried more companies that I could count. Lots of shady businesses out there... We were coming of a brand new HVAC installation just two years ago and the previous company completely botched it. It had problems within a month of installation and they were completely MIA. We ran it as long as we could to try and recoup the some cost, but it was a constant worry. Decided to give Holt a chance and we're so glad we did! Yes, they were more expensive, but it's the classic "you get what you pay for". 100% worth it! It's so hard to find a company that has the perfect mix of quality, punctuality, and honesty and Holt nails it. I genuinely appreciate their level of service and will pay a bit more to have someone I have the utmost confidence in doing the right thing. You should definitely give them a look if you need heating, cooling, or plumbing work."

"Holt heating and air conditioning installed our heating and air conditioning system and now we have the maintenance program with them. All the different people we'd have had out to do the semi annual maintenance have been courteous and professional in there attire and speaking to us. I would use them for other services in a heartbeat."
