This 5 ton AC is 4 years old now. last year it cost $600.00 to recharge gas due to leak. original installer could not find leak. he blamed it on home builder said they probably drove a nail through refrigerator lines in wall. this year it is out of gas again. I had a different AC company look at it they said I was between a rock and a hard place. I now am looking to replace unit after reading reviews about Ruud leaks in compressor and in the evaporator coils Im looking at close to $7,000 to fix, My home is 4 years old, builder went bankrupt. original installer could care less about our problem.
