I have a combo ac and heating inside unit that was probably original
when the house was built in 1989, The compressor outside is starting to
leak, despite being just six years old. I live on in a beach community
on the Atlantic side, about 60 miles from Orlando. The salt and heat
accelerate the effects of corrosion.
The repair man said the inside unit was okay but I would need a new
compressor sooner rather than later. Over the phone the sales man tried
to make the compatibility between the compressor and the inside unit a
factor in replacing both.
Anyone have some solid evidence, prefereably on line, to confirm or
deny this allegation?
