Anybody else bought any refrigerant recently?? How much has it gone up in
your neck of the woods??
Since the end of last summer, a 30lb can of R-22 has gone up another $25 and
a 25lb can of R-410a has gone up almost $60.

Anywhere from $76.00 to $87.00 for a 30# bottle if bought by the skid
It keep going up with the Frickin Government taxes until it is discontinued
like R-12 and R-502
I guess Im goina be the dumb one to ask.
On your R-22........if someone needs 4 lb of R-22 is the cost going to
be $79 total (excluding diagnostic, trip, leak check, etc.)?
and if they need 1 Lb its free (excluding diagnostic, trip, etc.) and
if they need two pounds its $79 total (excluding diagnostic, trip,
leak check, etc.?)
In other words, its not $79 per pound?
Dont worry, this isnt a trick question. :-)
Not a dumb question.... it works like this...
$70 for the service call/diagnostics
$79 for 1-4 lbs of R-22 (also triggers electronic leak search)
Leak search, depending on how involved to find out where it went ranges from
$28 - $110 (usually its in the evap coil...$55)
Assuming leaky evap coil replacement.... 10 SEER runs $716 - $920 installed,
plus any additional refrigerant, TXV coils run $1036 - $1320 installed plus
any additional refrigerant. Coil replacement usually takes me 3 1/2 - 4
I don't do *JUST* a "gas and go", and only schedule 4 calls per day...If any
other calls come in that day, I will only *DO* a maximum of 6 calls a
day....there is not enough hours to do more than that if your doing your job
I thought you were the person (a Trane dealer) that he and I swapped price
lists to see the difference , if any in units. Me being an American-Standard
dealer. This was about 5 years ago and I did forget who it was....I'm
getting to frickin old
And since no one is interesting in buying a job (buy my business)...I'll
just keep putting up with the damn public a few more years
