I have three central AC units that are 12 years old. Yesterday all three were not functioning. Not cooling. Tech came over and said no gas and I paid $700.
Another company came today and said I should get Heat Pump over my gas furnace--which is also 12 years old. I live in Souteast PA.
First, could all three units loose gas in one day--put 7 lbs in one unit and 9 in the other. I did not do the third
Second, should I get heat pumps and the contractor is recommending Carrier or Trane. I plan to stay in the house about 5 years.
Contractor tells me that I will get a much reduced rate from local electric comopnay.
Other contractor says to get American Standard Central AC with variable speed. Don't have a quote from him but trhe other company is asking about $16K for the 3 Heat Pumps
