    Went on a micro channel luxaire that data plate showed 3lbs 4oz. Homeowner said she had just paid for 9lbs from company x. So I showed her on the unit where it stated the amount

    Bad thing was mine wasn't flat. It was icing up. Only about a pound low. Checked with a leak detector and found leak in evaporator coil. Replaced under warranty and homeowner paid labor. Now she will not call company x again due to my honesty.
