Question about Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner
This is an old '98 Bryant air conditioner. We had this same problem several years ago. Freon was loaded into it several times and several times it diappeared. Finally an HVAC person fixed the problem. It has worked fine for 7 years. The other day the cool air was turned on only to last 5 minutes then hot air blew. Changed the thermostat. Changed the air fliter. Still have the same problem. The fans work inside and out...just no cool air anymore. We have called some HVAC people who are already telling us we are going to have to spend $2-4K for new equipment in the garage as well as the conditoner outside bc it is ALL so old they don't make the parts anymore. I am just afraid that all we need again is freon, but bc we are so nieve, we could be taken for money we can't afford since we are retired and on fixed income.
Unless your compressor is burnt up, you probably don't need a new unit. If it's a 1998 it's not that old and you can get parts, the only thing is it's probably R-22 refrigerant and they must fix the leak in the unit if that's the problem before adding refrigerant and the refrigerant is expensive.. All they have in a heating and cooling system, that needs replaced, are a few parts. Outdoor unit has a fan motor,compressor, capacitors fan and compressor and a contactor. Furnace has a blower motor, capacitor, gas valve, fan and limit or furnace control board, which they still make replacement parts for.
My advice would be to call some more HVAC companies, till you find one, that is willing to fix your unit and not replace it..
