Question about Heating & Cooling
I always tell my clients that if the repair is more than half of the cost of a new system then they should consider their options..according to the DOE (doe.gov) the average life of a standard air to air unit is about 12 years. Note.. there are only two things that cvouse a unit to freeze up.. low charge (leak or undercharge) and lack of air flow, (usually maintenance related) The temperature that is usually seen with a correctly operating unit is between 50-55 degrees at the closest supply register. You may also want to consider the fact that R-22 is being mandated into obsolecense, I would consider an upgrade to a new system with the new refirgerant (R-410a) before spending another $300 or more on a 15 year old unit. as far as brands... there are only a couple of places that make compressors, fan motrs, contactors and the componenets that are required to "build a unit" what you are buying when you buy a brand of a/c is the warranty, the service after the sale by the dealer, and the factory backing for the dealer, also what color and shape is the unit... verify the contractors BBB rating, ask friends for referrals, and verify what the warranty covers...(in writing!!) Hope this helps
