About what we paid last year, I believe. Hoping the unit makes it through the season one last time....

Was that just for the material or also for the time and knowledge of the certified trained technician?

It's can get pretty expensive and I hope you were presented options. I paid 90 bucks last year for a 1lb fill and leak sealed.

R22 30 lb. cylinder $450.00 + shipping

I remember when the Home Depot opened in East Hanover. They had Pallets of the stuff in the front of the store for sale. They were the ball breaking 50 pounders too!
$189.00 each 50 Lb cylinder. Not No More!

If any leak is yearly that a less than 5 ton unit has to be refilled ..... that is NOT a de minimis amount. That system has a large leak, and should be found and repaired if possible. If that was me, I would be looking for a replacement system that uses an environmentally friendlier chemical.

2lbs of coolant is more than the cost of a COMPLETE BRAND NEW window unit. MAD!
