2 New Ruud AC's 8th Season..One always worked,other gradually lost cooling by end of first season..
Back then it didnt really sink in until the next year when it started getting very hot as that non working unit is in the part of house we dont really use, so its the main one that always worked that we have on. I tried to get the non cooling one fixed at the begining of last season by a friend of my brother in law who works for a large firm who brought his buddy..they said that the Freon was low and said seems to be a slow leak..He checked with a meter that detects leaks (what ever was exposed) but found no leak..screwed some ducts together that were open..changed a pin or something where line attaches to outside unit.. he added Freon in which I think was 7 lbs..and said hopefully that was it. He gave me the tank at his cost for future use. Total $400.
Cooling soon disappeared and not repaired. Did not try to fix it this year..am afraid to spend money were are short of.
When the Two 4 Ton Ruud units were installed the R410 Line was new and all units new.
Cant the source of leak be isolated..whether its Line..Unit outside or Unit inside. The Units were new and failed in the beginning. How long does it usually take about to find a leak like this?
It is possible to some extent it was damaged on purpose..A local guy was irked that we didn't use his people..(strange neighbor hood but we are in now and all is well).
Secondly..my working unit..the Coils outside Id like to have them cleaned properly and safely..its all we have.What should that cost in general.
Basically I'd love to have the non cooling unit working/fixed and both outside units coils cleaned for reasonable $
