House AC Issues..?

Yeah.. That's probably what it was..
Since I did replace his batteries with new ones that I just bought, his sensor on his device was probably bad..
Thanks

Yes, it's very possible. there are a bunch of places freon could leak, and not be easy to detect. It's very possible there is a leak in the lineset. However, as the other fellow wrote, you'd think he could have detected the leak where the tubes go in and out of the wall.
I'd also suggest to call a second service company. Ask them to come over and find the leak for you.
Your description "add two pounds and it's cold as ice for two weeks" is classic description of freon leak.

Your leak is fast enough that a leak detector should easily find it. Yet yours doesn't. So I'd look at the evaporator, which is the easiest place to miss such a detection.

Thanks..
Where is the evaporator ? Would be upstairs in the attic near the coil, or outside the house, where the line comes out, in the compressor unit / AC unit ?
Thanks

user,
The evaporator is the coil in the attic. The condensor is the coil outside.
If you have a leak in the lineset, run a new lineset exposed up the outside wall hidden inside a downspout. Run the downspout up into the soffit. Looks nice, especially if you already have real downspouts to match. Abandon the old lines in the wall. That is what I have done many times. Line sets DO leak inside the walls, I have seen it many times, but I would have someone else check the units one more time to be sure.
