1) use temperature and pressure to get it exactly right;
2) weigh the charge and put in the manufacturer's
3) add charge until it feels about the same temperature
as a cold beer can. You'd be surprised how often 3) is used.

Once you have a new system in place, you should be good for 20 to 30
years or so with normal wear.
I'm still a proponent of owning a home. If you plan you will have the
house paid off long before retiring. Taxes, insurance, utilities will
still go on, but they should be much lower than paying rent or a
mortgage. In 15 or 20 years, you have a lot of equity rather than a
box full of rent receipts.
Partly retired, I'm paying $300 a month (plus utilities) to live in a
2000 sq.ft. house on 1/3 acre of land. Rent in a crappy apartment is
at least 4X that.
Always some bumps in the road but the guys here can help smooth them
I have refinanced many times, both to get a lower rate (it was over 9%
in 2000 when I bought my house!) and for a shorter term. I went first
for a lower rate, then down to 15 years, and the last time down to 10
years because the rates went so low.
Logically, owning is better than renting. When it comes down to the
never ending maintenance and replacements, it just makes me think about
the color of the grass on the other side.

IDK about that. You used to get that kind of life, but from so many
reports I'm hearing now, based on what a lot of people here have said,
it sounds like the typical life of a gas furnace, AC system, etc today
is more like 15 years.
