  • R&r A Compressor

    How much would it cost to remove and replace a compressor so one can do excavating under it.

    Do you have to contain the refridgerant and dispose at a site.

    Does it cost much to recharge the system on a unit that serves a 1400sq. ft. residence.

    Rough ballpark, 500-1000. You can pump the refrigerent into the condenser so you don't lose the charge but you still have to pull a vacuum and braze with a nitrogen purge. Looking at about a 2-4hr job depending on how they pull a vacuum. Refrigerent is sold by the pound, goes from 50-100 a lb here.

            50-100 a lb for R22 is highway robbery.

            500 would be pushing the upper limits of what I would charge.

              What do you guys charge for freon? What I quoted was from different companies around town. I guess labor rates in Illinois are different than Va Beach.

                You know what I charge an hour, Junkie. I've told you. No, we dont mark up R-22 500-1000%. At least I dont. I wouldnt be able to sleep at night if I did.

                  I believe we are around the $18.00 to $20.00 range per pound of R22.

                    I forgot what you said. I didn't say "I" charge that much, "companies" charge that much. Don't kill the messenger. I couldn't sleep so I quit my other job.

                      Not looking to kill any messengers, Junkie. Not now anyway. I was, however, going to point out how hypocritical it would be for you to charge $100 a pound for 22, then give ST so much grief about what he says he charges.

                        To add to that statement, bear in mind that I am 99.9% commercial. If I did residential, my charge would probalby be higher.

                        Heck, what residential I do (someone who knows someone or a GC that we do a lot for) we dont even bother to invoice for a residential service call.

                        Since I have been with the Company, I have always thought we do way too much "freebie" work. But that is another topic for a different discussion. I may even try to start that thread, but I am afraid the gloves will come off and everyone start fighting.

                        regads,

                          Go ahead and kill the messenger, its allowed by law. I think its called trespassing, at least in Mississippi that is
