Re: [DML] AC Compressor update

If you use the Freeze 12, which I have used, you must and I do mean
must, stay on top of the system.  Measureing pressure and ensuring
that you add new refirgerant as required.  And once in a while add the
can of oil and refrigerant, if required.  Otherwise you will end up
replacing the AC compresor.  If you still have cold air blowing
through the summer, go ahead and find a place to replace the Freeze 12
with R12, but you have to tell them that there is Freeze 12 in the system.
