How much Freon for dash air in 2005 Seabreeze

While on a vacation we ran into problems and had our compressor replaced in the cabin air of our 2005 Seabreeze. We were told by the technician that he put 3 lbs. of freon in it. It doesn't seem as cold as it has been in the past. How much freon should be in the system?
Thanks for your help.

I thought they took between 2 and 2 1/2 lbs. If it has been overcharged, it won't work as it should, and the high side pressure will be excessive.

most places round up charges to the nearest pound. However the only way to know if it is correctly charged is check the pressure and find the sight glass bubbles in the sight glass can mean low charge or that the condenser is not working correctly. One of my cheats is to spray the condenser down with a hose when checking pressure this gets me a solid liquid in the sight glass going to the expansion valve and good temp drops. then I can watch the system respond. If it goes back to bubbles in the glass with low pressure odds are it is under charged if the pressure goes way up it could be poor airflow a slight over charge will not cause a lot of problems. I have never been in a shop that sold freon by anything other than the pound if it took 10oz to top off you paid for a pound just the way they bill it as a part. Much like a oil change if they put 5 qts in and it is still low they top it off and charge you for another qt. Most systems have a label saying what the correct charge should be on the air box under the hood.
