Question about Carrier 38CKC060 Air Conditioner
We just had our spring A/C check-up and I've been told that the readings on my compressor are lighting up as 'bad' . They recommend that I replace the whole unit. It is about 10 years old and the guy could not give me a ball park price to do the job - he has to send round his crack team of specialist salesmen to discuss it with me. I am a bit wary about this as the last time this happened I was quoted $2500 for a job which I got someone else to do for $1000 (replacing a coil).
2 questions - Are these annual contracts where you pay a monthly fee for 2 free checks a year a good idea - it seems that they always find something wrong that costs a fortune to fix. 2nd - if I have to replace this unit how much should it cost approximately?
I'd be grateful for your input.
Did your unit work last summer? 10 Years old is very soon unless it is a cheap unit like janitrol or goodman. Most units last min. 15 years and 20 most of the time. Generally speaking any ways. To replace compressor cost maybe 750.00 to 1,000.00 you have a big house looks like. 5 Ton unit. The whole system could be 6000.00 to 8000.00 depending on grade of unit. I would get a second opinion though cause I am wondering if they are just padding their pocket.
