alright, so I know my a/c unit has a leak, how you ask? well i had a local shop fill it up in july with freon and uv stuff to see if there is a leak later and about a month ago i get a warning from my ecc saying low freon, so I got a leak, great. I'm not concerned at the moment (gonna have the shop look at it this week or next to see how much to fix it, it has already been converted to r134a thanks to the previous owner who just forgot to mention a leak in the system
) but I do have one question. I've had the system on econ now for a month since I didn't want to run the a/c unit with low freon/oil because i was afraid I'd burn up the system. Am I correct? Also, is it alright to run the system on auto ( in hopes of just heat, no freon usage ) and get some heat out of the vents? Right not now the econ doesn't do crap and while I dont particularlly mind, some heat is always nice. What do you think guys?
