Cost to Fix Freon Leak
We bought our house (built 2002) in July of 2008. We noticed right away that the A/C unit started freezing up. So I brought out a service technician who told me we had a freon leak (of course). He refilled and told me that it should last until about May 2009, at which time I needed to decide between repairing the leak or buying a new unit. He said fixing the leak would be about $1000, and a new unit would start at $3000 for the lowest model and go up from there. Of course, a new unit is out of the question. But is $1000 a reasonable amount to fix a freon leak? My father-in-law says he's crazy.
