1 year old Central Air not working properly


He hasn't checked for a leak!!! He just added freon and said he thought it was just a loose cap (whatever that means). This is exactly why I'm so angry...because he hasn't checked for a leak!!! I was hoping he would open up some parts and check things out but none of this has been done. I appreciate all the info very much! I look very forward to the appointment to see what they say.

BTW...It was 72 degrees last night and 71 degrees in the house. I turned on the air and it took and hour and 17 minutes to bring the house down 2 degrees to 69 degrees. I'm sure they'll consider this normal but I think it stinks!

You wouldn't happen to be using our AC guy would you? Load more freon in and call it good and normal. Ya right! Think there's a little more going on here. Got an appointment ourselves this weekend to troubleshoot ours. Gonna pester the guy till he checks all the vents, pipes,etc. They've got to find something.

Things are much better now. They actually found a leak in the high pressure line outside which had split in one of the loops of the coil. It was covered in dirt and that's what lead them to find it. Actually having oil in the freon helps out because when it leaks the dirt will adhere to it and make it easier to spot. This lead to the low freon condition which led to the indoor coils freezing up and cut down on the air flow. Hard to believe that one problem could snowball into many more. Problem solved. Oh and from what the AC guys says is that Goodman isn't a good brand of AC to have but nothing I can do about that now but good to know for future reference.

I have had a 3 ton packaged Goodman since 2005 and a split-system Goodman heat-pump since 2007. Both R-22 units. They have been working fine and they are fairly easy to work on and get parts for. Have a service performed at least yearly, preferably semi-annually if you have major season change. It may appear to cost a little more up front, but it beats being with out heat or AC for 3 days, and a service can prevent major repairs.

The BMW dealer is going to tell you that Chevy/Ford/Chrysler isn't a good car. But there are a lot pf people driving them. Hmmm.
