My Rheem Package unit 10 seer 3 ton was installed in 2001 by my neighbour a Rheem installer for a longggggggggggggggg time. Just a good ole country boy but he knows his stuff.
Now the evaporator coil is shot.
Appearantly the water from my well carries sulfur gasses that get into the unit and eats up the coil, at least that is what he says.
He is going to get me some quotes on installing a new coil. I'm told that in 2007 the minimum seer rating is 13 for units manufactured and sold. And a new 13 seer unit 3 ton is going to cost me $$$$$$
1.Does sulfur gasses really eats up the coil?
2.Should I replace the coil, will that last longer if I put in an aeration system to get rid of the sulfur?
3.Or should I just buy a new more energy efficient unit?
4.How long is an average life of a Rheem package unit without the sulfur?
