What Causes Leaks In Air Conditioners?

I just read the most complete article about what causes the majority of leaks in air conditioners. During the middle of the last decade, manufacturers tried to cut costs by reducing the wall thickness of the copper tubing used to make their air conditioning coils. The thinner walls are more susceptible to formaldehyde. Formaldehyde from the building materials and ground create formic acid which eats away at the copper. Now that there is less copper in the pipes, the faster the erosion becomes and the more prevalent the leaks have been.  This article really lays out the research and the results.
