What way is least costly/best way to find a Freon leak in Central AC?
Hi..I have a Ruud central AC 16 SEER put in around 2011 or 2012..
We have Two Units 4 Tons Each.
Blowers in Attic..The other things(forgot what they call them) outside in back of house with new lines.
The one that Cools the parts of the house we occupy has always worked.
The other which is for the other part really has never worked (probably) since it was installed.
That Unit we never really needed to turn on but when we did on the very hottest days..we realized
it didnt do much cooling. after a few years we realized the thing doesnt blow cool air at all..just blows air
like a fan.So a friend of my brother in law came by checked and said.."low on freon" filled it put a pin in and said likely was a leak there and off he went.
Seemed to cool some.,so we were happy that it was ok but didnt really use it.
This year we turn it on ..no coolness only air.
Im guessing Freon is leaking basically in an unused 6-7 year old unit.
How is a leak found in such a situation?
