    Needing freon is no reason to let the baby go down with the bath water no big deal, everyday in Houston someone needs freon, now if you needed 15 lbs you might start saving for a new Air Handler.

    O God no, I think I see a white horse coming down through the clouds,

    Can the leak be fixed in the air handler or do I have to replace it?

    Someone would have to look at it to know if the leak can be fixed or not.
    Some can, others aren't worthwhile trying.

    How old is the unit? Most evap. coil leaks can't reliably be repaired. Repair one leak , a month later , another , next month , another . You get the picture. It's in your favor to bite the bullet, and install a new unit.

    Depending on the age and condition of the air handler - If unit is under 5 years old the part should be under warranty from the manufacturer, and you would probably just have to pay for the installation of the part. If the unit is over 5 years old you need someone to look at the overall condition of the air handler and determine if it is worth paying for a new coil + installation. In SW Florida the avaerage life of an air handler is around 8-10 years, due the the harsh conditions our systems have to deal with. We have 2880 cooling hours ( highest in the country) and extreme humidity. These conditions really take a toll on our systems. Either way unless it is a minor leak,that is easily accessable it is usually not practical to try a repair.
