Cool times at CadMur Manor... so far
The tech from Vendor X stopped by Thursday and did his magic to our central air condenser unit outside. He gave the 10-year-old system a shot of R-22 refrigerant and injected a dye pack at the height of the 90+ degree day. The dye will be used to help find our leak. By nightfall, the house had reached 80 degrees. We're at a comfortable 73 now, Saturday at about 3:15 p.m. He gave us enough of the R-22 to last a couple weeks.
Vendor X will return July 9 with an ultraviolet light to look for the dye, somewhere along the coils, valves or line. Where there's dye, there's our pinhole leak. We hope the refrigerant lasts that long and that the leak is easily fixable.
