i have a 3 ton goodman HVAC, pretty regular setup, condensor outside,
fan coil in the attic. it's 8 years old.
it wasn't cooling, and i had a tech over. he used a sniffer to fingd a
leak in the coil, recharged the system.
he recommended replacing the entire system with a Carrier one, which
his company sells (cost 5600$).
i called a goodman dealer, he said replacing the fan coil would be
1250$, the entire system would be 4400$.
i was hoping to get some feedback on whether i should replace the
entire system, or just the fan coil.
the system has worked fine up to this point; i had to replace a
capacitor on the outside unit last year, but otherwise it seems fine
and cools beautifully now it's been recharged. (it had never been
in addition to the repair/replace question, some other questions:
o do the prices seem reasonable?
o how much more life can i expect out of the condensor, given that
it's 8 years old
o is repairing the coil leak a reasonable option?
