Re: Air conditioning top off?
Connect to the bottle and then connect to the low side (blue usually) to the low side service valve. You want the bottle to be warm. If its not warm it will be harder to charge. Don't heat the bottle just put it in the sun or put hot towels around it.

Yes you can if the 410 a/h is new just put a r22 txv on it I have personally done hundreds of them mainly carrier they even sell the conversion txv. I'm a 15 year hvac sub contractor and I know my sh##
Hello Usually there is a 1 year warranty from the installer and a 5 year from the manufacturer. It may not be the Whole condenser is bad.But the compressor in the condenser is bad.Ask your repairman about that.R22 units are getting hard to get now as they will soon be gone.
9 yrs is a little short but it depends on how often it was used and maintained. You certinly can try Rudd and see if they will do something.
if you have some knowledge about air conditioner system then first connect hose with suction side of aircon pipe conector(valve) with Gage and second hose with cylinder and GAGE .during of this you must remember don,t forget to open valve before START this job then make your ac unit vacuum it should be 18-20 micron after vacuum fill freon (approxmatily 60-65 pci)
and check your aircon system,s evaporator all pipe has been cold not and any pipe is getting ice on it .if its reachpressure 60-65 psi AND YOUR AIRCON BLOWING COLD AIR then it,s good the close by cup nut on the connecting point and remove hose from connector and disconnect Gage from system .
(but please don,t do if you have not proper knowledge it can be dangour) warning: if you don,t have knowledge to do this please don,t try
A 30lb bottle or R22 Refrigerant your cost would be $650. As a Licensed Refrigeration Mechanic, I would charge 4 hour minimum for leak check and repair. The hourly charge is $75 and the Refrigerant which is extra to the price is $35 - 40 per pound. As the price of R22 Refrigerant goes up in price as it is being phased out per Government Regulations, you will see $75 - $100 per pound +. As for my pricing, my fellow workers say I charge too cheap. If you take $650 and divide it by 30, it would be $22/pound, but it can only be delivered to you and charged into your unit by a Licensed Refrigeration Mechanic...then the labor comes into effect for all of this. So in an nutshell, if you were charged $30 - $75 / pound , I think you did well. I hope this clears it up.
the red hose connects to smaller line...usually 3/8's....the blue connects to larger that has black insulation. The yellow to tank of freon. The unit must be running to put in blue hose. If unit nit running put in red hose. Must be done by someone with EPA 68 license
