My heat pump is blowing cool air this winter. The local HVAC repair
person wants me to buy a new unit for $6,500. I must admit that it is
pretty old system and may not be very energy efficient. The problem is
I don't have the bugdet for it right and do not want to take on new
debt by financing a new unit.
Can I have him recharge the compressor or replace it altogether? The
entire system is still working except for the cold air.
I appreciate any insight.
Err, if it's blowing cold air when it should be heating the only part
of the system that's working is the space blower.
As far as what it'll take to fix your system, your best bet is to go
with a local contractor you trust rather than to seek blind advice
over the net.

Didn't you know that some air-condition devices
are more efficient in winter time
(The local HVAC repair
person wants me to buy a new unit for $6,500.)
Well GW Bush is not doing that good job
of stimulating economy so some body got to do it
I must admit that it is
Some old units are better then new-ones didn't you know that
The problem is
What you mean budget you do have credit card
you know what they say you can't take it with you
for it right and do not want to take on new
(The entire system is still working except for the cold air.)
It sound like you need reliable service contractor who
knows what he or she is doing
Take it from some one who do not have anything to loose
or gain DIDO say that
Replace the compressor and buy a new bag of warm air. Replace the
thermostat and it should all work fine again. If the air isnt warm
enough after that, consider purchasing a "Reverse-flow Ductbooster".
