I have a Residential HVAC system that recently stopped blowing cold air through the ventilation system. According to the service repair person the condenser unit (outdoors) Model: York MC36-6G was not working properly due to the compressor, which seems to be tripping the fuse box inside the residence.
They mentioned that the fix would entail not only needing to replace the entire condenser unit, since its 22+ years old (but regularly maintained) but also need/want to replace both the coil unit attached to the furnace inside the residence and the furnace itself.
Is there any validity to this? They mentioned that if we replace only the condenser unit with a new condenser unit, the coil unit and furnace may not and/or would not be compatible with the new condenser and the equipment may not possibly not fit together, if I don't replace the entire system? True - Not True?
Is there a way to find out what the part # of the compressor is and if a replacement or similar OEM or after-market compressor part is available for replacement? If not, which manufacturers and units/systems would you recommend. The service representative mentioned that we should not go for anything below the 13 Seer 3 Ton. I later found out that the 13 Seer is going to be a regulatory minimum mandate in the next couple of years for the industry. Thank you for taking the time to read my posting. Your expertise and recommendations will be held in high regard. If you seek any additional information I will try my best to advise you. I am also available through email and PM. Thanks.
