Best Answer

Freon is odorless, non-flammable, and is not corrosive. It is unlikely that's the source of your discomfort. Moreover, if your central air unit sprang a leak, it wouldn't take long for the freon to discharge completely. Your unit will no longer being cooling. If it's still cooling, even inefficiently, it's definitely not the freon.

Should I replace a central air conditioning system vs repair it?

Average life expectancy on most central AC units is about 15 years. If it keeps leaking freon, replace it and the lines going to the heat exchanger. Also, be sure the heat exchanger is not the problem (the part inside the house with the furnace that feed air into the ducts). You may be able to get a few more years out of it by repairing it now, depending on what's wrong.

Any AC, house or car has a pressure switch in the system so that if there is not enough freon in it, the compressor will not come on. The fan will run, but that is all. It is just circulating the air. Nothing will be damaged in the system running it without freon.
