Probably. About $456.34
Of course, there are several reasons why an AC might not work properly.
Since the unit is 11 years old, it really should be serviced by an AC
You wouldn't drive your car for 11 years without an oil change?
Measure the temperature of the air coming from the AC. It should be about
20 degrees cooler than the air going into it. Example, house is 80, air
coming out of close duct to unit should be about 60. Good to do this both
for your AC and furnace when they are in good working order, assuming a
central air system.
Buck, if you havent had any coolant added in 11 years, thats a likely spot.
Prices vary for that but apt to be in line with about 100$ plus whtever they
charge locally for a regular checkup and cleaning of the coils. Call it
probably 200-275$ total as a reasonable guess? May obviously be a bit more
or less where you are.
This assumes you've done the obvious and changed any filters etc (about 5$
for a new filter here and takes all of 3 mins to swap out the old one).
My area is a little cheaper and we got an estimate in spring, 175$.
You shouldn't tell an auto repair shop, or AC or furnace or most any
guy what is wrong with something, or what he needs to do, unless one
If you tell him what to do and it doesn't help, he just did what you
told him and he's not responsible that it didn't help. Let him
figure out what he thinks is wrong, and why, and then the customer can
decide what to do.
Like I said, I don't use my AC much but it's 29 years with no added
freon and worked fine last summer.
