My Carrier Heatpump 38BYC has been reliable but my A coil has a leak , as this unit is R-22 I have a decision to make....replace the A-Coil and hope the Heatpump lasts a few more years OR...replace the A coil with the new refrigerant type (R410A) and replace the condenser unit outdoors that uses the new refrigerant.
What are your suggestions?
How much does an equivilant replacement 38BYC that uses the new refrigerant type cost? What is the model number?
If I just replace the A-Coil with the R-22 type and my 38BYC plays out, are these particular units still available?
I don't want to get into a situation where I spend $ to replace the A-Coil and then my 38BYC plays out and I'm forced to change the coil again to support the new refrigerant type.
