I have had to have my air conditioner charged up to 3 times last year. 2x this year so far. The leak apparently is in the indoor coil. It has been repaired a few times but it didn't last. My unit is a 3 ton Janitrol 21 years old and I am looking to replace it.
I have narrowed my choice down to a base Tempstar unit N2A3 (13 seer). This unit has a 5 year compressor and parts warranty but is eligible for the supersize 5 additional years of warranty that tempstar is advertising, so that it will have 10 total years of parts and compressor warrenty.
The carrier model is 24ABR3 (13 seer) with a 5 years parts and compressor warranty. I believe both units have a scroll compressor.
Would the Tempstar unit be a better choice with the 10 year warranty, or is the carrier still a better unit even with the 5 year warranty.
Any help on the decision would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
