#169365 find freon leak

Posted by lrning on 16 September 2010 - 03:44 PM

I have a MILLER central a/c for more than 10 year.

In July, the technicain replace the condenser (not the compressor).

the condenser is in the outside unit, next to the compressor

(Am I correct) because the condenser is rusted

The job cost is $600

this month (september), the house is really hot 81 degree F. So we call the technician back, he cannot find any leak, but he has to add Freon in.

And now the house is cool ok again.  So far so good.

I know that it is a lot of work to find a small leak, and technicians are on the clock to make the most money. I would do the same.

So what can I do to find the leak by myself.

any special tool to smell Freon R22.

it is leaking somewhere, because he had to add Freon

is there a post/ a link somewhere?
