    Market Value of a condenser unit

    Years ago I acquired a new condenser unit. The crate was damaged, and the company didn't want the risk of selling it and having problems. So, I ended up with it. So 10 years later, It's still bolted to a skid, no damage to skirting/paneling or the coils, it's r22, and charged, and ready to braze up, suck vacuum, and open the valves. Question I have, is what would the value be In this day and age, considering the price of r22 and it's availability..

    It's a trane, model 2ttb0048a1000aa

    My buddy had his furance replaced, and had a 4 ton evaporator installed up top, and has lines ran out to a pad and capped, but never got the other half of the program, and he's interested.

    I don't want to cut my throat, but don't want to just give it away, I know it's worth something, but how much, reason I'm asking here, sorta feel out the market value...... Appreciate the info.

    As you know, R-22 is being phased out. So depending on how much longer you hold onto it, the refrigerant inside may be worth more than the unit! It's a Trane XB,4 ton, 10 SEER unit for all those out there not familiar with Trane model numbers. I'd be more than happy to make you an offer if I needed a new AC for my house, but I don't, and unfortunately efficiency requirements (at least in my state) require the minimum SEER of a newly installed unit to be 13 or greater.

    You could probably get $300 for it from someone who needed it for a side job.

    A 3 ton evaporator won't work that great with a 4 ton outdoor unit.

    Used for who knows how long, or conditions (clogged coil, low charge, etc) empty, and wants $500?

    Probably a poor source to judge from, but that's one peice of data for average

    What you guys think?

    I wouldn't pay $500 for it. I can buy a new 13 or 14 seer 4 ton "dry" unit for not a whole lot more than that. Figure the charge is probably somewhere around 5 lbs and R22 at $8.50/lb so it's got maybe 40 or 50 bucks worth of refrigerant in it. I might pay $300 for it to use in one of my rent houses.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    $8.50 a pound? We're buying 30# tanks from serval, listed at $740 a tank

    Not my money, but still the point.

    I would think $500 would be a fair price. Don't think you could give a parts or compressor warranty though.
