I have a 9 year old Trane XE 1200 system. We have experienced small Freon leaks the last couple of years. We would have the system recharged and it would be fine for about 9 months. This year when the system was charged it leaked down in a couple of months.
The service technician finally found the leak in the evaporator coil. The service manager called and said that we needed to replace the coil because it was impossible to repair the leak given where it was located.
It is an American Standard air handler and he said it was going to cost $XXXXfor the coil replacement. I believe he said the identifying air handler number was TWE036-SF-2.
I'm obviously no expert but I can't imagine that the whole air handler itself would be much more than that to replace.
Does the repair cost seem reasonable?
