Question about Heating & Cooling
We've had this unit for several years without a single proble and now, suddenly, it only blows warm air. I figure it needs Freon but have no idea how to do that and can't get any appliance repair person to even take a look at it.

Freon or R13 is no longer allowed to be used in air conditioners because it attacks the ozone layer when it escapes. There are heavy fines for intentional release into the atmosphere. If an engineer was to replace the gas with a legal refrigerant then he would want to collect and flush any remaining gas for safe disposal and change the rubber seals in the pump etc. Apparently the new gas will attack the old type seals. I was going to get the aircon recharged in my Mazda RX7 but it would have cost about £300 because it had the old gas but then we had a rubbish summer so I didn't bother. It all seems like a money making excercise especially considering the huge amounts released before 'Green Fever' swept the world. There is however a 'drop in replacement gas' which is compatible with the old seals and remaining nasty gas. It usually contains a leak stopper and flourescent dye to help find where any leaks remain. Try typing DROP IN REPLACEMENT FOR R12 REFRIGERANT in a search engine or a popular internet auction site. You can then recharge your own aircon for a fraction of the price after a bit of study. Good luck.
