Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/# lbs R-22 for a Carrier 38CK, 1.5 ton


I have the subject model, installed in 2006. My unit is cooling the home somewhat, to about 83 degrees, with an exterior temp of 88 degrees (May: central FL), and the unit will continue to run without further cooling my home. I have a service company coming in 5/28, and wanted to know about how many pounds I might need based on the above information and the total # of pounds the unit holds... On a fixed income and do not want to get ripped off, which is common by these companies against the elderly. Thank you!
