I had a weird call today out to a/c call at a home.
It started out weird since I don't normally do A/C or house calls.
Today was one of our first good A/C tests of the year 88°F and 68% humidity.
I get there and he tells me while we stand at the C/U
"I think it needs a little gas"
I asked how it has been running and he said it's 8 yrs old and time to get topped off
So I've think I've been picking up a few good tips from reading many posts here and I took in some printed material and charging graphs because I've moved passed the beer can methods
So I get started and start to measure IDWB IDDB ODDB R/H and SH/SC and it's 72°F and 49% RH inside his effen house
WTF why am I here
I take all the measurements and calculate SH and it's spot on from one of the graphs I pulled.
He still is asking if it needs a little gas.
Should I have fooled around with a tank of 22 in his back yard to make him happy or did I do the right thing and explain every thing was A/G. Did I miss something?
I told him if he would like it a little cooler we could put a larger unit in for him.
Do you think if I got the tank off the truck he would have felt cooler?
