I had a A/C tech come over today for maintenance check up.
He think everything seems okay. I have new evaporator coil installed four years ago and change a filter almost every month during summer time.
However, after I told I had a trouble one a couple weeks ago with A/C that was not performing very well around 5-7 P.M . He says the compressor is very old and recommends me to replace the whole outside unit. He think it's an early sign of compressor failure. He suggested compressor start-up kit to help compressor work better or replace the whole outside unit.
I haven't had any problem with my A/C ever except for contactor once.
Should I replace the unit? It seem quite expensive to replace outside unit when it still works just fine normally except one case.
Currently I have Good man 3/5 ton outside unit that was installed in 1991, new evaporator coil (carrier) was installed 3 years ago. I am located in Garland, Texas
The A/C unit suggested is Tappin ( I haven't seen this brand before) 4 ton keeping the evaportor coil in attic.
