    yelling at I can handle, I yell a dumbass newbies all the time, however, constructive insults go a lot further in keeping this stuff from happening again

    like the smartass with the cigarettes comment, yea, that helps how

    for those with technical help and insults, thanks, I will attempt to find someone else who comes out this far and get it examined

    however, after borrowing a thermometer and finding both units, pressurized the same, both cooling to 64 and 66 at the vents, is a service call really necessary and is the 80+ inside temp just because it's a frikkin 100°F outside and the house is an open 2450sqft 2 story?

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    I guess I'm not getting the point, if both units, one never touched, are cooling at the same temp, same pressure, can you explain the problem.

    I understand one has been mixed, but the last AC guy said he mixed it last year too. R22a, which is why I bought it.
    Rural SC here, so choices are limited.

    Do I need to get someone else to come vac the system and recharge it?
    Nobody seems to want to try and find the leak as all lines are through walls, up into ceiling floor cavity, then up a center wallspace right to the attic units

    More leaks are in the coils, then in line sets.

    You just gave another good reason not to use that HAVC company.

    Mixing refrigerants is a violation of EPA regs.

    Just because they are blowing out the same temps, doesn't mean they should be.
    Air flow, effects coil temp difference.
    maybe the one you mixed, is suppose to be 5 or 10° cooler then it is.
    And since it isn't, its putting more load on teh other unit.

    Yes, it must be recovered, vavuumed, and recharged with new R22 only.

    I wouldn't use that company again, if mixing gasses is their normal answer to a leaking system.

    DIY - not here.

    Don't post it again.

    This thread is closed.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
