Hey guys, work is slow so I figured I would make a post, of course I know is is colder out and most people don't use their A/C in their cars or homes right now so that would be why its slow. My primary job is in Transport Refrigeration, basically Trucks or trailers that haul loads of refrigerated or frozen goods, which slows in colder months but it hasn't been this slow in years. But Its really all the same concept, Home A/C, automotive A/C, Walk-in freezers, Cold plate systems. I am in the Inland Empire area, I have the ability to buy parts for your home A/C direct from wholesale suppliers. I do not have a stock of parts so more than likely will have to be diagnosed then if needed will have to go for parts. Same with Automotive A/C I do not have a stock of parts, parts would have to be ordered or Purchased at a local parts store if available. The time I have available is pretty flexible, so If you need any services let me know.

a small point, when people dont run their auto a/c's the oil seal on the compressor dries out causing a refrigerant leak (so ive been told for the last 20 years) so run your car a/c's once a month! every month for 10 minutes... what do you think tkmech21

Freonr22 I'm assuming your a residential HVAC guy? I'm guessing from your Screen name. This is very true, In both automotive and Transport refrigeration, If you have an open drive compressor that uses a shaft seal it will dry out and leak refrigerant if it is not used for a long period of time.

How much to do a charge on a home central air conditioner? There's nothing wrong with it, but wasn't sure if I should have the freon changed/filled as it hasn't been touched since 1992.

South Corona area

Still cold enough that the AC isn't needed so I'm not in a big rush.
I just wanted to bump his ad and let him know we're here.

You shouldn't have to recharge your system. In a sealed system where the compressor is not an open drive compressor. The freon doesn't mysteriously dissapear. If your AC is working, just replace your filters and wash out your condensor coil (the unit outside) the main contactor wouldn't be a bad part to replace, The contacts in them take a lot of wear and tear over time. another very big problem and something to look for is bad taped joints in your duct system. you can loose a lot of air into your attic or wherever the duct is running. trying to remove the heat from your house while sending all the cool air into your attic doesn't work too well. If I can help anymore, PM me. Thanks.
