All refrigeration systems should be checked for leaks for a number of reasons:

Concern over the environment
Cost of replacing lost refrigerant
Legislation to phase out and ban CFC’s
A low refrigerant charge will lead to a reduction in system performance – could be costly.
It is now a legal requirement that a system with over 3kg of refrigerant should be checked for leaks on an annual basis. (Article 17) This means making leak detection part of an on going maintenance programme.

Approved methods: Bubble-up, electronic (sniffer), Ultra-violet for refrigerant or fixed monitoring leak detection system.
