Ive a package hp unit for the shop -22 ( well actually its luxaire )
Apparent slow leaker ( no visable oilslick )...36 mbu so offhand guessing
probly factory about lbs.
Took 4 years butt his fall got so bad took action ( hell maybe some kids
been huffing onnit--antway 3lbs later it still seems just fine, this was
about 3 weeks ago.
Hmmm - check the Manufactuer's Unit label. The full charge is stated there.
If you took the time, you could locate the leak [probably in the evaporator
on the bottom] and seal it. Instead of screwing up the enviorment.
Actually, in the last 4-5 years, Goodman / Amana has come up to a "higher"
level. Their warranty speaks loudly about their trust in their product.
Although *Bubba* loves their evap. coils [makes extra $$$]. Where as York
is offering "industry standard" warrnaty. I've heard though, if
contractor's purchase the "extended warranty" the underwriter is paying
street rates on repairs. That's a good thing!
I use the York Affinity line of products on a daily basis's and yes i
have had bad
circuit boards on several condensing units and a few control boards on
gas furnace where it does not recognize the roll out switch etc but
they are really nice and quiet unit all around 10 year compressor
the GY9 92% furnaces have had a lot of problems with the draft inducers.
and the plastic drain pans on there evap coils are so cheesey if you sneeze
they crack.i just dont think york is worth the money that you pay for it.
Consumer Reports said that central HVAC systems were generally very
reliable, but York, Heil (we have one), and Goodman/Janitrol were
among the worst. The best were Trane/American Standard and Rheem/Ruud
