    I know our one original goodman ac unit is in need of coolant as it's had a slow leak since the beginning. Seems every 4 years or so I need to put in a pound or so of coolant and it's been 4 years. I've been calling around and some places are just not answering. I got one web quote for a non emergency call but it was out to mid august for appointments and around $200 a pound for coolant and $85 for a half hour visit. Seems a bit steep.

    Anyone found a good company around here with decent prices on coolant for those older units?

    That old R22 freon is getting hard to come by. $200 a lb. is not a bad price.

    I had one company rep say $150 was what she thought was the price but the tech would have the official price and to not quote her on it. I'll keep calling around. Still having trouble finding anyone to come out within the month for a non-emergency call. Would like to get it checked before the really bad heat hits. Thanks for the reference signifer.

    Does Climatic still offer it? They are usually very responsive. Good luck.

    Climatic filled our Goodman's this week and you are right they are very responsive. It is a great company.
