Generally, anything can be an intrusion to an area that requires technical expertise, aside from replacing the air filter. Below are a few major examples.

A hissing or bubbling noise coming for your air conditioner can have several meanings. Usually, these noises indicate that there’s a refrigerant leak coming from somewhere in your air conditioner. You are poorly mistaken if in the event you are thinking to yourself that you can patch it up with the help of a few helpful DIY tutorials online. In addition to being harmful to your eyes, nose, mouth, and skin, refrigerant can be harmful to breathe in. You will likely cause more harm than good since not only is refrigerant harmful for inexperienced (not to mention unlicensed) people to work with. You can’t call it a day after using a little duct tape over your air conditioner’s refrigerant line.
