R22 cost North Carolina

I had 2lbs of R22 put in my system May 2018. Please see attachment. Just wondering if this is comparable to other parts of the country. Thanks!

Do the forums have an automatic virus checker for attachments like these? New member, first time poster.....it's like getting an unsolicited email. Sorry for being suspicious. I wouldn't open it.

If legit, Whisperer, just quote the price in your post.

Welcome to the forums.

Posting a receipt/invoice is like an advertisement.

Not sure what the going cost for R22 is in North Carolina. You paid $150 a pound which is on the high side of the spectrum. I don't see any mention of looking for a leak. With expensive refrigerants every effort should be made to locate leaks to stop future loss. You basically got a "gas n go".

Hello Tumble,

I understand about attachments. I was just wanting to share the cost breakdown from invoice. First pound of R22 was $180 but it also stated I was getting a discount of $27.00. Second pound was $120 but said I received discount of $18.00. The visit/time cost $99.00. So for 2lbs of R22 and the expertise of putting it in my AC cost $400. Just wondering if this is in line with other markets.

Thanks!

So where was the leak found to be, and has it been repaired?

that seems really high while most places probably mark up Freon might be something you want to ask price on prior to having a service done,
r22 is currently selling for under 13 dollars a pound on ebay a 30 lb cylinder is 380 if you want some idea of what there cost was seems a mark up of 10 times or more is excessive and not someone I would want to be using.

R22 is a lot cheaper now than in may of 18. Even for may of last year Id say it is still high. We also don't know if this had cost such as truck charge, scales, the techs time etc.

possibly but even if they paid 500 per 30 lbs its still only 16.66 per lb there cost still would be an incredible mark up either way.
