Air conditioner advice sought

Well, the technician just told me that my unit's compressor is dead and that it's probably best if I replace the whole unit. Does anyone have a ballpark idea on how much is reasonable on a 3.5 ton unit installed? Any help on brand selection would also be appreciated as I know nothing about this stuff.

Sorry, I can't help you ...

May I piggy back on your thread? Is it wise to have your airconditioning units serviced each year? In the Philippines we discovered it was best to leave "good enough" alone until something happened.

I work in the industry doing some minor service and maintenance as well as installation. I have worked on several different brands of units. There are few differences. Mainly in cabinet design and where things are located within the cabinets.
In my opinion you should call and get several bids and ask them about thier warranty's. Meaning what is covered by the warranty and what is not and for how long. It is important to feel comfortable with the company that you choose to do this work because they will pretty much have to do the warranty work on the unit that they sold you. And you need to be confident in what they tell you.

As an average you can figure roughly $1000 a ton. So you should be looking at roughly 3500 to 4000.

Depending on how old your system is they may have to replace the indoor unit as well or at least the indoor coil. After January 1 they could no longer manufacture 10 seer or less units anymore.

Sounds like the techs in the philippines were taking advantage of you and others and a lot of companies will do that kind of stuff where you get out there to do a "tune up" on thier units and they will sell them contactors or relays or something that was not really burned out on your system. That is why you have to be comfortable with who you choose as you HVACR representative.

I work for A.B May, you might want to consider a Heat Pump so that you can get a better electrical rate for 8 months out of the year, the money you save on your electric bill will help pay for the system.
