    Your customer couldn’t afford it. Did you fix it for free.
    I can see at least 4 to 5 hours of labor, adding R-22 and as preventative maintenance maybe you added the easy seal.

    I think part of the reason for the vastly different viewpoints and experiences is due to commercial vs residential. In residential I’ve seen more evap leaks. In commercial I’ve seen more condenser leaks. Not sure why. Doing mostly commercial/industrial work, I fix any leaks that can be fixed. If the equipment is in poor condition, I’ll discuss replacement with the customer. They usually want it repaired if possible. They understand that there is no guarantee that new leaks won’t develop at any time.

    For resi work, in the case of the OP, I would’ve recommended unit replacement, but if they wanted it repaired and understood the risks I would’ve done the repair.

    I’m talking about large tonnage equipment that costs tens of thousands of dollars, or even more, to replace. The tendency is going to be to repair if possible.

    Ok, I’m still working on 30+year old 7.5 ton and up to 20 ton carriers that are being replaced with curb adapters and trane RTUs in their place. They have a timeline budget that they do for replacement. I can easily make the carriers last a long time...very simple technology! No complicated fancy control circuit boards, lol I definitely going to miss them!

    If you stick them together with a bead of silicone caulk - that will stop happening.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Even cap tubes need to socially distance.
