When your air conditioner stops cooling your home efficiently, you might suspect it’s run out of refrigerant. This chemical substance is responsible for cooling heat from warm air before it’s sent into your home.
But it turns out that most people’s idea of refrigerant isn’t actually true! The biggest myth about refrigerant is that it “runs out” from normal use.
Air conditioning systems are manufactured with enough refrigerant to last their entire lifespan. That can be up to 10 or 15 years!
So, if you suspect that refrigerant has vanished from your unit, chances are you’re dealing with something else instead: a leak.

Although our evenings have gotten quite chilly over the past couple of weeks, it’s been a sort of nice relief from the weather we’ve been experiencing, right? We’re used to needing our air conditioners on an hour-by-hour basis, and paying a lot for the energy necessary to make cooling our homes possible.
Soon enough, it will be time to turn our attention away from our cooling systems and toward our heaters instead. If you have a heat pump, this means making sure it’s properly maintained for the season (it’s not too late to schedule heating maintenance this year, if you haven’t done so already!), and then switching it from cooling mode to heating mode.
Wait, what’s that? You just tried to do that and it’s still sending out cooled air through the vents? Yikes!
Okay, first off, this might not be as big of a deal as you think–we’ll cover some troubleshooting tips below. It may require professional repairs, and we’ll talk about that more below as well. Read on to learn what’s happening when your heat pump won’t switch to heating mode.
