Price to replace cooling coil on WeatherKing 12AJA4801

Hi
MY AC vendor said it would cost $2500 to replace the coil on my Air Conditioning unit. The part is 12AJA4801

Does that price sound reasonable? The coil seemed frozen and they said they had to replace it (I live in Louisiana where it is not that cold)

Any input would be appreciated. thanks

You could have a low air flow condition if the coil is freezing. Check the condition of the filter and the coil itself. If either one of these is dirty or blocked the coil may freeze.

If the coil was frozen over it tells me there is a different problem. If the coil is frozen over try this. turn the circulating fan to the on position and the sir conditioning to off . Let it run this way for 1-2 hours to melt the ice and re-establish the air circulation. Then turn the a/c back to the cool mode and see how it performs.

Lower temperatures during evening and night conditions can cause coils to freeze over. Running you A/C with the fan in the on position generally takes care of this problem when you are cooling.

Can a pro recommend a comperable replacement wall AC only-no heat?


Most air conditioners now are reverse cycle, which means that they can heat as well as cool. Cooling only units were popular many years ago due to the price difference for a reverse cycle. Today, the cost of manufacturing has dropped and it has resulted in cooling only units being virtually finished. I would suggest you get a local air con sales company to come to your house to measure up properly and determine what would be best. There are a lot of factors in installing air conditioning. IE/ The size of the house, the area it will be required to heat / cool, the amount of windows, types of walls, roof etc (Heat loading on the house) Roof and wall insulation etc etc.

My amana window ac is blowing condesation out the vents. it is still cooling..is this a problem


There is a condensation drain on the unit that is probably plugged. It is natural for air conditioning units to produce condensation as the evaporator coil (the coil/fins that make the air cold as a fan blows air across it ) is much colder than the outside air temperature ( usually between 38 and 55 degrees depending on the unit ). There is a basin or tray at the bottom of the unit that catches the condensation as it drips off the evaporator coil, and there is a drain that allows the water to drain form the unit. If this becomes plugged the water will build up and eventually drip out of the vents of the unit. http://www.air-conditioning-and-refrigeration-guide.com/air-conditioning-circuit-and-cycle-diagram.html
In the image, air is blown across the coil in the bottom left section of the picture ( this is the "cold' coil). Condensation can form on this.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

I think compressor needs to be replaced, ac unit not pumping any cold hair in the house. I have a weatherking a/c model 10AJA3001, how much eventually it would take to replace it?


You're looking at around $800-$1000 to replace the compressor and if the condensing unit has some years on it (say 12 or more) it would probably be cost-effective to think about a new one, except for the fact you'd probably have to change the evaporative (inside) coil - to match the new condensing (outside) unit because chances are - your old unit is R-22 and you're going to have to put in a condensing unit that will be using a different refrigerant.
All that being said - I would try to find out the reason your AC is not cooling and hope it is a minor problem that can be easily repaired.

Can I mix brands/tons when installing AC unit to existing coils?


First off - the 'rule of thumb' is 600' per ton of Air Conditioning. In other words your old unit is a 2 ton unit. So - 2 tons x 600' = 1200'. As you can see if you install the 2.5 ton unit - you will be installing a AC that 'could' cool a 1500 sq ft house (2.5 x 600' =1500 sq ft.). Slightly more than what you need; and the 3.5 ton unit is 'way to big,' (3.5 x 600' = 2100 sq ft.).

Note: fyi - many in the AC business will sometimes refer to tonnage in btu's, i.e. 1 ton = 12000 btu - hence a '2 ton unit' can also be referred to as a 24000 btu unit and vice versa.

So... from the above - you can easily see that "2 tons" of Air conditioning is what is required to cool the 'average' home of 1100 sq ft. "roughly speaking."

Note: it is always best to have a professional 'size' your cooling/heating needs.

One of your questions was could you 'mix tonnage?'

The answer is 'usually you don't mix the tonnage of your outside/inside units.' However, professionals sometimes do (mix the tonnage) in certain situations, and installing a 2.5 ton outside unit with an existing 2 ton inside unit is often done, however, there are some 'tech issues' here and - I would "again" recommend that you call a Service Tech to help you with the sizing/mixing of your cooling/heating needs.

hope this has helped

Air Conditioning Unit is leaking badly, has mold and ice.


soundls like the condensate drain is clogged and coil is dirty. look for a plastic pipe inlet where water would flow to.. you may be able to clear it by blowing it out with compressed air. you can also pour bleach into it to address the mold problem. if the coil is icing up it is because it is dirty. to verify this, let the unit run in ac mode for about an hour and check to see if you have air flow from the vents. if you do not, then the cooling coil is covered in ice, thus blocking air flow. you should have a qualified ac person clean the coil and check the refrigerant charge on the unit. one thing to consider, change your ac filter often, at least once a month in hot weather.

Central unit freezeup when on


If you are running the unit in the A/C mode with the fan in the automatic position it could be the cause of the freezing of the coil. Try operating it with the fan in the on position and see if the problem goes away. When in the automatic operation the fan shuts off when the cooling unit shuts off and air circulation stops. Hence no defrosting of the cooling cycle in the off cycle. In the evenings when the outside temperature drops after sundown the pressures in the system drop in proportion dropping the temperature of the cooling coil sometimes causing ice formation on the cooling coil.
