Hissing sound from dash!!!!! WTF!!!

So I took my 5th gen to get an oil change today since i
was visiting my rents in Florida and didnt have any tools
or jacks. Well they put in 5w-30 synthetic blend which
is fine and I added some thick oil additive since i have
172,000 miles on the motor.
I also had then check the A/C.....after determining that
i had a leak at the evaporator, drier, and expansion valve
i decided that I would try to do it my self when the summer
comes around. My problem is now since having the A/C
check done I have this annoying hissing sound coming from
under the dash! Not sure if it is the ventilation fan or a leaking
hose. Just wanted to see if anyone has had this problem or
something similar.....

Thanks!

when you turn the fan off does it go away ?? if so id check that they reinstalled the cabin filter correctly .. if not id say they charged the system to find the leak and you are hearing the refrigerant leaking from the evaporator ..

no its always hissing when the car is on so I assumed it was something with either the evaporator or a hose. So should the hissing go away after the refrigerant runs out?
