Handheld Leak Detectors

All air conditioning and 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.

The Tek-Mate handheld electronic leak detectors are the #1 leak detector in HVAC/R in the USA. Also see the GAS-Mate handheld electronic leak detector which is designed to detect combustible gases.
