I wasn't going to get into this because it sounds like you're getting good
advice to change both units but there is an alternative.
I'm at the beach & its very common to change the condenser only because
of coil corrosion since the air handler will outlast two or three of them.
It's not uncommon to find a reasonably new condenser with a bad air
handler coil that needs replaced. Goodman & Amana use the same Air
Handler/coil for both their 13 SEER R22 & R410A units. I haven't had to
convert one to 410A yet but there is an ARI match for them. So for people
eking by & trying to save it is an option though with a 15 year old
condenser I would not recommend it.
