The owner spent about 30-45 minutes troubleshooting my A/C system for a small leak. He pressurized the system to about 250psi, sprayed soap solution on a few areas of the main evaporator coil, and did not see any bubbles. He climbed into my attic, did not hear any obvious hissing from the condenser coil, then concluded that the leak was in my line set between the two coils. He was adamant that the leak was in the lines only, and quoted me $800 to replace the line and also to install a filter dryer because he was convinced that the R-22 refrigerant was contaminated with water due to the line leak. He was ready to begin the repair work immediately, but I wanted 2 other estimates first. Two other contractors used electronic leak detectors and immediately found several leaks in the main evaporator coil. They isolated the coil from the line set and did another test to confirm. I picked one contractor to replace the coil under its warranty, and he performed the work to my satisfaction in July 2010. I asked him to take several photos of the coil to show all the leaks. The vendor of the system (Payne) never complained that the returned coil was in working order, so I can only conclude it was the faulty part. Also, my air conditioning has worked perfectly for months since this work was finished. Finally, they performed a test and found no water contamination in the refrigerant. I called the owner of Ambient back to ask for a refund since his diagnosis was obviously faulty. I explained how the other contractor repaired the leak, and he claimed that it was incorrectly done. He would not refute the electronic test and refused to debate several points I made about why his methods were inaccurate. He refused to refund the service fee. He is adamant that his diagnosis was accurate, and threatened legal action because of my demand for a refund. I will never use this company again, and I warn anybody who wants to get a fair and accurate analysis on their A/C system from calling them!
