Question about Weather King 10AJA3601AH Air Conditioner
No your just behind the 8 ball. Our illustriousness government officials decided that because some of us cant turn out a LIGHT BULB, that we have to be more efficient on our AC and Heat pumps. Now almost no manufacturer has any 10 -12 seer equipment there hasn't been any made here in the states since 2006. This Washington mandated but if you go to a 3rd world country they may have them there. And yes it was AL GORE and his bunch that headed this up. But I bet you know Al Gore gives all his money from the enviromental movement he has to charity (of which hes the CEO) So don't blame it on the ex-president. Last time I looked Al GORE was in the "other party".
Now that the politics are out of the way you have to change the outdoor unit you'll also have to change out the indoor coil to match it. No 13 seer equipment will work properly (from what Ive been told) if matched with one of the older coils. And the manufacturer (some of them) will not give full warranty if you dont change out the indoor coil to match the out door unit.
1 Way around this for a short time could be this (especially if its hot where you are). Purchase both the indoor and out door pieces you will need for full warranty. Tell the contractor that will do your job that you would not mind if he waited to change out the indoor section till fall or winter when he is less bussy. Go ahead and have him price it all together but have him cut out his labor on the indoor coil until he comes back to install it later. This way all your bases are covered from the manufacturers point of view. (Now this maynot be a good idea if you have an older capilary or piston type expantion device on the indoor coil, if its a Thermo Expantion Valve it would be ok for a little while if its still working properly). Any models made after 2006 will all be differant now.
You didn t say what was wrong with your old unit?
Another option would be to purchase an AC COmpressor and replace the Compressor. If you take this option I always install a new over sized Liquid line drier, a new suction line drier especially if the old compressor is burned out, some acid killer, possibley the run capicator which may be out of range or incompattabe with the new compressor, and maybe a contactor. After thai the outdoor fan motor and its run capicator and the out door coil are about all thats left of the old unit to give any trouble. I may suggest a high pressure switch with a manual reset if your fan motor has some age (4 years or more). Oh yes and if you opt to do this you may have the option of an extended limited warrainty.
If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fix ya.
