    What? Couldnt make heads or tails of that comment. Any how , do you even know if it is the correct capacity for your home or current Evaporator set-up, why used equipment? You need to hire someone to do this, it sounds like the water has gotten pretty deep already.

    Well. your friend should get someone that knows how to do this.
    Not someone that doesn't.
    Thats not meant to insult you.

    We all started out not knowing what we were doing also.
    But swapping out compressors, is not a beginners task.

    Nor will you get help here. As this is not a DIY site. Please read the rules, Thank you.
    Even if your in the trade, we don't give out technical advise in the open forums.
