    They didn't say about hi/lo. Yes, putting in that much refrigerant is not something I would do more than once. They indicated that locating a leak is generally too difficult and did not attempt. ...

    Thanks...

    Is New Compressor Needed?

    Symptom: Had an 80* OAT day and turned on AC. 83* inside. Inside set at 77*. While vent air seemed reasonably cool, took 1-3 hours to drop to 80* inside. Hours later, dropped to 79* inside.

    OK, guess I can withdraw my previous question about the definition of short radius, I thought that meant 90* vs 45*, but now I see what you mean in the picture. Does "sag" mean not level? I'll check...

    targetman,

    You suggest 90% furnace. If just used as backup heat for the pump, is it cost effective over the 80%?
