Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner
I have an old Rudd H&A/C 3.5 ton unit, the A/C drip pan is rusted out and leaking.
A local repair outfit recommends replacing the condenser coil & the drip pan, a $900 job, can just the drip pan be replaced instead?
If so what's a reasonable price for the job
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Replaced my 5-year old 3-ton 12 SEER Goodman outside condensing unit with an older 3-ton RUDD condensing unit because of lack of funds. Now the compressor has gone out on the RUDD. Is it better to rep
A new unit will be 13+ seer unless you can find someone that has replaced a compressor or has one left over from pre 2006 stock. Our wise Government with all its resources decided that we aren't smart enough to turn off the lights to save energy, so they chose to end the med and low price lines. And the same bunch of smart ones decided that now R22 because of its chlorien content being bad for the air (5% of what R12 was) so we have R410A and others that no one knows how much cancer or daMAGE THEY WILL DO OVER TIME. So now if you replace your AC unit out side with a new one be sure its compatable with the refrigerant inside and beware soem manufacturers wont stand up to full warranty if you dont buy an indoor coil and rerplace it too.
We get what we deserve in Washington DC and if our guy didnt support this stuf too many other folks guys did. We just dont talk about it enough. AND WE SHOULD. But then again you like me are probably RITCH. So we have to give up our wealth to the government so they can redistribute it and buy more votes. And we can stay working too much to talk about it.
Just burns my back side like a 4 foot flame.
Read tween the politics and you'll get my recomendation.
Buy your self a compressor and get someone qualified to install it or see if the old goodman one will interchange easily.

Only if they are still available in your area. Goodman still has a few R-22 units left in Texas the last I heard and that is only if your local supply stores can order them. They are getting to be far and few between since they have stopped making the equipment. You might also get a second opinion, a lot of companies are just trying to benefit more by replacing everything, but you could still have a R-22/410A compatible indoor coil and copper line set, they just have to use a flush kit to get all the old refrigerant out of the system. 410A is easily contaminated and runs at a lot higher pressures, that is why they want you to replace everything, but there is still hope. It will save you a little money just having the system flushed and replaced with 410A condenser, but only if compatible. Hope this helps and good luck!
