Air conditioning in 2010th JK Wrangler

Noticed a hissing noise that occasionally sounded behind the centre vents and then not long ago it was like a pressure valve released and there was steam coming out from the base of the engine compartment, this went for about 20 seconds while the jeep was idleing. It happened again just a few days ago and it seems as though the air conditioning has lost its chill factor. I have had it from new for 16 months and wouldn't think it would need re gassing already. Does anyone have ideas on what this may be or if maybe the air con filter can be inspected? Any help will be appreciated.

Maybe it sprung a leak somewhere under the hood. I would take it in to get checked. If its a leak it will be covered under warranty.

Could it be blowing coolant out of the overflow tank?

Hiya, no overflow for coolant is all ok, dealer said nothing wrong in the system when they used the diagnostics tool though that was before I noticed there was a reduction. Back to the jeep dealer again I guess.
