Exposure to Freon can cause nausea, weakness, headache, dizziness and confusion. High concentrations of Freon over an extended period of time may cause damage to the lungs, liver and kidneys. The most serious side effect of Freon exposure would occur at the time of initial exposure.
People who have a history of heart problems should be very concerned about Freon because it can cause an irregular heartbeat, and palpitations at very high concentrations. For people who have a history of heart problems, being exposed to small amounts of Freon from leaking appliances should not pose any significant health risk.
If a Freon leak is discovered, contact the NATE Certified Technicians of Wolff Mechanical for ac repairs immediately. Open up windows and doors and use fans to help move the air out of the area. Remove everyone including pets to an area of fresh air, and if someone feels any unusual health effects, seek medical care. If someone has chronic heart conditions, consider having all Freon containing appliances checked regularly for leaks.
