What's the damage?
 
Hey all, got a question. I recently lost cold air, of course on the hottest freakin week! Well I opened up the unit and discovered that there's a small pin hole leak (r-22). Can this be sealed by a weld? If so, I was wondering about how much should I expect to pay to have this repaired and get a refill?
I live in So Cal if that helps any. Thanks guys.

:whistling2: So detailed!! :whistling2: :wink:

What "unit" did you open up and how did you determine where exactly the leak was?

Anything is Possible but is it worth it is the question. Answer: No, not at all.

New "unit."

Copper is easy enough to repair. I won't pull fins off an evap coil to braze because the condensation might blow off. Condensing coils are a bit more work but fixable. Only way to know how much it costs in your town is have somebody come out.
