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.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

WHAT DOES 12000BTUh MEAN OR REPRESENT IN AIRCONDIONING terMS? eg 12000 or 10000


Hi,
I found this explanation which I certainly couldn't improve on.

The British thermal unit (BTU or Btu) is a traditional unit of energy. It is approximately the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. One Btu is equal to about 1.06 kilojoules. It is used in the power, steam generation, heating and air conditioning industries. In scientific contexts the BTU has largely been replaced by the SI unit of energy, the joule (J), though it may be used as a measure of agricultural energy production (BTU/kg). It is still used 'unofficially' in metric English-speaking countries (such as Canada, the United Kingdom), and remains the standard unit of classification for air conditioning units manufactured and sold in many non-English-speaking metric countries.
In North America, the term "BTU" is used to describe the heat value (energy content) of fuels, and also to describe the power of heating and cooling systems, such as furnaces, stoves, barbecue grills, and air conditioners. When used as a unit of power, BTU 'per hour' (BTU/h) is understood, though this is often abbreviated to just "BTU".

I located it at this site all credit for this info is:
