What should you do if you suspect that an alternative refrigerant had been used in the A/C system and it is not performing properly?

Expert Solution
To determine

The process to be followed if there is a suspicion of an alternative refrigerant being used in the air-conditioning system and is not functioning properly.

Explanation of Solution

Firstly, if there is a suspicion of an alternative refrigerant being used due to lower the functioning of the air-conditioning system, a purity test or check must be performed on the refrigerant. The cause might also be due to mixing of refrigerants or due to contamination of the refrigerant. It is necessary to check the sealant before performing the purity test. Therefore, a purity test must be run on the refrigerant using a identifier. The refrigerant identifier also has the potential to identify the fraction of refrigerants present. The purity test will help us determine the necessary steps to be taken.
