    Thank you that makes more sense.
    Your prior post said 10lbs not 10 dollars.

    By law it's your freon/refrigerant if they remove it.

    At this point it sounds to me like your being cheap, talking about buying your own refrigerant. What a joke.

    I'm not sure that I see what the contractor has done wrong at this point....

    If the warranty company is paying for refrigerant, I dont think the company can charge more for the paid refrigerant.
    Ask the warranty company.
    But my COST of R22 is considerably more than $10/lb...
    Someone isn't telling the truth.
    The TRUE highest cost system is the system not installed properly...

    Do you go to a boat repairman with a sinking boat, and tell him to put in a bigger motor when he tells you to fix the holes?

    It's called maximum coverage.
    So they pay out a certain amount, and a difference is paid by home owner.

    It's an additional expense, not covered by the home warranty.
    Additional, non covered expenses are paid directly to the contractor, by the home owner.
    But I thought it was a additional expense ?

    I kind of remember running into this with a HW company we don't deal with (the customer used a voucher to call our company).

    When I spoke with the HW company on the phone, they said they would cover $20 or whatever per pound. So if we're charging $120/pound, the customer has to pay us $100 and the HW company pays $20. First time I've heard that. The only two home warranty companies we normally deal with cover a certain amount of refrigerant at a agreed upon price between us and the HW company. Anything not approved, the customer is on the hook for the retail price.

    Just goes to show you the EPA is a big pile of crap gov’t agency. They threaten to fine any licensed contractor not following specific rules and regulations for handling R22 refrigerant, yet will allow non-licensed individuals to purchase this refrigerant all day long off eBay and other on lines stores. EPA is a lie and a friggin joke.
