I had a house built in 2003 and every year since the summer of 2003 we have had to get Freon put into the system and also have been told that the Compressor is bad in the first year. I have yet to get a new Compressor or Central unit. The units are all placed up and down my street by the same builder and we all have had the same problems. Good luck with your systems working!

If you have access to your piping system you may use a soap bubbles to test the pipe connection. the leak gas will blow the bubbles if there is leaking. But if your system is out off freon gas, you can not use this method. just try it check the connection first put the bubbles around it.
That is not correct. The system is not mis-matched. They just put a heavy condensor outside to get more air volume for your house. The failure of the valve is not to common of a failure but can and will fail. The problem with Palm Springs is the weather you get there, From very hot to very windy with sand storms to freezing rain and sometimes snow depending on where you are. What is the tech wanting to cahrge to replace the valve? Also this is something that should have been looked at closey and examined before the home was bought and that should have been known by the realator
Sound like possibly low on freon. Can't say for sure without getting my hands on it. Only reason to be low on freon is a leak somewhere in the system. A/C's don't "use" freon; the system should be completely sealed. I recomend turning the system off until you can have a qualified professional check out the system as it is very ******* the system to run it if it is truly low on freon.
Sounds like you have a freon leak or your compressor has stopped working. You will probably need a service tech. If it is out of freon, don't let them just add more freon, make them find and repair the leak first. Good Luck.
