    1) get a dictionary
    2) get a telephone book
    3) look up HVAC in the phonebook and call out a real service tech to look at your system

    Might have a restriction in the distributor at the evap, or the piston its self.

    If you decide to let the tech RECOVER the charge. Have him check the piston for dirt, don't let him just recharge the unit.

    Also, before recovering, he should run the unit with the fan disconnected to tell if a distributor is restricted, or the piston.

    There isn't an easy way for you as a H O to tell if your getting a good tech.

    Good Luck.
