Cost to service central air conditioner.

We currently have a Carrier air conditioner in our home that is 26 years old. It still operates well except it has a minor leak in the system somewhere and we have to have the freon serviced (they have to add a little to the system) every couple of years. I know all of the negatives of the old style freon and the cost involved with handling it but I am having a little problem justifying the price I was charged to have the system serviced. The technician topped the freon off and said he added a dye (to detect leaks later if requested) and charged me $338.00. I'm I off base or does this seem rather high for this type of service? I live in Springfield, IL. Thanks.

Freon (R-22) sells for about $40 a pound and service call labor about $95 an hour. The amount needed would depend on the size of the unit and how much had been lost.

If you subtract $95 for one hour labor and divide the remainder by 40, that would be about 6 pounds of Freon. If you have the information that came with the unit, look at the freon capacity. That will give you a rough idea of whether the price is high or not.

hi....There are two basic types of RC helicopters, ones with two main rotors that turn counter to each other, which have no tail rotor, and ones that have a single main rotor and a tail rotor. The tail rotor is there to counteract the torque effect that the main rotor creates. A gyroscopic controller is used to coordinate the main and tail rotors so the helicopter can fly straight. When this system is not working correctly the helicopter will spin in circles.
