Question Any HVAC guys near Middle River, 21220?

Have a heat pump/central air unit and while the heat worked fine all winter, yesterday trying out the A/C, it seems to be just "cool" and not "cold".

Compressor is running, fan is blowing (outside and inside), so guessing it just needs a shot, or double shot, lol, of freon...unit is roughly 10 years old.

If someone wants to make a little cash, and is in the area, or will be, shoot me a message.

Iíve been using Contemporary Air Systems for a few years now. Been very responsive and fair pricing. They are in your area too. 410-391-3070.

Didnít seem freaked out either with my reloading bench with thousands upon thousands of bullets and cases on it 😎

I have no idea. Should there be a label on it somewhere that may say?

R-22 according to google search using model number on top.

Armstrong Concept 1000 is what the unit is.

I appreciate the effort though. Thank you for that.

Old acquaintance just left. Took 7 pounds...

And $400 oiut of my pocket...seems high, but what are you going to do? The internet says $50/lb is about going rate for R22 since it's near extinct, so if that's true, he only charged 50 bucks for the work, and to come do it at 8:30 at night, after working all day.

He said if it has another issue, it will need replacement as its 16 years old and R22 is being phased out this year, which I already had read on Google.

I have a bit of r 22 left if you need to limp unit thru the summer till replacing
7lbís is a lot. Pretty good leak somewhere
May want to put some soap on shader valves (where gauges get connected when servicing.
) and watch for bubbles indicating leak.
Could be as simple as loose or bad o ring on cap covering shader valve.
Unit that old and o rings being what they are could be cause of leak but inexpensive fix.
Consendrate on smaller line( high psi liquid line) as that most times is where leak will be.
Few small things to check that could buy you time.😊
