Heat pump

My heat pump is malfunctioning. When in cool mode it will blow cold for a while but then get warmer. If I turn it off for a moment and then back on it will blow cold again
What might be wrong with it? A technician added refridgerant to it in january.

When the tech added refrigerant, where did he find the leak to be located at?
Refrigerant isn’t consumed during equipment operation. So if the unit was low then there’s a leak to be found.
It’s probably a problem with the heat pump refrigerant circuit, and the warmth you feel is the auxiliary heat staging in.
Sounds like you may have had a sales tech, someone that is payed to push new equipment.
Depending on how large the leak is the unit could be low on charge again.
How old is this unit? What refrigerant does it use?
