The charge of freon should last forever.It should never leak out or never go bad.You may have a very very small leak that needs a few pounds every few years.Having a hot year will cause it to leak a little faster . good luck to ya!

I have a goodman Model CKL 36-1K . It says Factory Charge oz R22 . Does that mean it uses R22 freon? The guy who sold it to me says it uses 410a and was only 2 or 3 years old. The serial # is 040637071 ....


Hello, the unit is a 3 ton and was built in 2004. 0z R22 stands for R-22 refrigerant. Not sure why he told you 410a but if the unit says R-22 than that must be used.

We have a 4 year old maytag a/c - M1200 16 seer unit. The compressor has stopped running several times durring the hottest time of day - the air handler keeps on running - which brings in warm humid...


It may be overheating, but chances are it has a high limit control switch which may be bad or it is overcharged with freon, in any case the limit and/or the freon charge needs to be verified by a qualified person who know the proper method's for charging and verify charge.
The hotter outside temps cause the high side pressure to rise, with a properly charged system it should operate properly even at 120 degree temps.

Why would you be paying for refrigerant on a 4 year old system when most systems have a 5 year warranty on sealed systems.
Sounds like who ever it is servicing is ripping you off.

I have a dometic duo therm roof ac unit that is low on freon - can the system be recharged?


It is a closed system, (ends are soldered) that said, a heating and cooling guy may be able to install fill valves and re-charge for you, but make sure you get a quote ahead of time. How old is the unit? Not normal for them to need re-charge, and I've seen them work good for 15 years, if maintained properly. Has it been completely cleaned recently?

Air conditioner trips circuit only in the evening?


first off, it's illegal to release freon into the atmosphere. the epa could charge you $32,500, so keep it under your hat. second, if it's getting too cold where the evaporator coils are icing up, it's too lille freon, not too much. as for the breaker tripping, your compressor might be wearing out. if it's pulling too much current, the motor is failing and the compressor needs replacing. and do not do it yourself unless you're certified by the epa to move freon and have the proper equipment to recollect the used freon.

I recently bought a 4 ton 14.5 SEER Rudd Spilt system using R-410 and matching Rudd furnace. This system replaced a Lennox 10 SEER 4 ton unit. Now that it has gotten hot in Baton Rouge LA 90-93 degrees....


Sounds like the Unit might be low on charge.But without correct readings not sure.
The new unit with 410 will actually cool better due to higher boiling point temp. of freon type.Poor air circulation could also cause problem.Such as dirty filter, too slow fan speed,dirty coil.Also could have obstruction in freon lines either at pump,in line set,or in coil.
Get someone u trust to check it out and ask for their Rudd Dealership Training Credentials.

Coil leaking freon on the inside unit. Estimate is $2,100!


If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).
