Put 5 more cans in while smoking a cig and call me in the morn.
i saw this post earlier and i just knew he was going to get yelled at.
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

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?

With that cocktail.
Its more problem then just outside temp.
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.

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.

Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
