    Sorry but I believe in removing indoor coils for cleaning. I just do not feel and thorough job can be done with the coil in place.

    Seriously? Gunslinger and lions_lair, you both have an "*" after your name. So, I should respect your opinion. Do you really charge a customer for removal and replacement of an evaporator coil if it needs to be cleaned? I really would like to know.

    It can be done if you're an AC surgery tech, . even then you might get 25% of it clean. I will not pull a coil and clean it if it's very old, were the copper has become very rigid, because it will probably have refrigerant leaks in it by the time you get in back in.

    Thank you Mr. Bill, I am in the ACST program in Las Vegas. I am not certified in the half-hour coil transplant yet, but I am working on earning that distinction.

    Thing is i was quoted $1600 for removing the coil... or $1900 to replace. This was from a largely operated company in SW Florida. This wasn't particular to my installation. But a standard fee they charge for a removal and clean.

    I'm not pro, but it doesn't seem that hard to get too.
