I have a dilema and need some advice. This past winter I had the furnace serviced....just the normal annual cleaning. While working on my system, the technician said I should have someone look at the central air in the spring since he saw some corrosion on one of the copper tubes.
In the spring, I had another technician service the AC. He added 1 lb of freon (first time in 5 years) and said the system was working normally. My wife then mentioned the "potenial leak" and he then did a leak check. He then said he found a leak. Specifically, he wrote:
"Leak search indoor coil found leak in rt. side of A-coil @ end loops - also possible leak in coil instelf also rt. side"
He quoted us $903 to replace the coil.
I talked to him and we agreed to see if we could wait until next year to do the work. I have used the air conditioning all summer without any problems. Now I am being transferred and have to fill out a disclosure regarding my house. If I really have an air conditioning problem, I am obligated to say so.
1) I am not really convinced I have a problem since the air conditioning has been working fine since May. The technician only found the problem after we had him look for a leak.
2) I only paid $3000 for the total air conditioning system. $900 seems like a lot to replace a coil.
