Heat Pump (A/C) Repair Again

Even though we replaced the fan and cranked down the thermostat, the cooling of our house was not effective. After replacing the fan in the air out of the a/c outlet was around 73 F. The inlet was about 80 F. The difference was only about 7 F. Not very effective cooling.

So we got another reference from our friend. We called this A/C mechanic who unlike other three was independent mechanic. He came and told the refrigerant R22 was way low and he would add about 3 pounds and see whether we receive effective cooling. Then he assured us that he would come back and check the pressure. If it was much lower than what he added then there is definite leak and we have to take other remedies other than adding R22.

So we asked him to change the fan and we paid for the fan change only.
