    Representitive came out today and quoted us for a new Whirlpool Gold AHU with TXV (Opinions on this brand?) to replace old, leaky York AHU (Indoor and Outdoor units are 9 years old). Some of you will jump on me for this but Outdoor H/P is not getting replaced because we are moving next summer. They are going to evacuate the exixting system, replace some referagant tubing, reinsulate the lines, replace leaky condenstate drain and redo some duct-work. All will be done next week. Will deffently be posted in Wall Of Pride later. BTW, The rep. had a real working demo Infinity Controler that I got to play with. Very neat stuff! We will go economical in our current house and then go the best in the new house!

    if you are moving and it works, then go for it. i do feel sorry for the poor bastard that buys your house, though.

    wall of pride. probably not. a mismatched system belongs at the wall of shame.

    by the way, you ARE NOT getting a new system.

    you are getting half of....well,you won't know until you have paid them and lived with it for the summer and winter.

    you may see an increase in energy consumption and a decrease in comfort with the mismatch.

    why not just do it right? then when the house goes on the market the real estate agent can put in bold letters new hvac system. may differentiate you from the competition down the street.

    as always, good luck.

    No, I'm not talking about the condensate drain leaking, the evaporator coil is leaking R-22 and there is not a direct replacement for it because of it's old age(9 years)

    Old Age

    Indoor and Outdoor units are 9 years old THIS IS NOT OLD!!! You are being hoodwinkled. There is a replacement you can get!!! You should look into it. Also Pull the coil Pressure test it and fix the leaks!!!After removing the pressure. You can fix the coil!!

    York... I am saying this from one consumer to another. I am a Service Tech for a York dealer. You are being fed a line of BS. Please get a second opinion. What if the leak is in the outdoor unit? 9 years old is too young to go condeming equipment. We offer an optional 10 year warranty on everything we install. It can be fixed for much cheaper than replacing and mismatching things.

    A large leak is easy to find and if he is worth anything he can fixit in most cases. Its a waste of money to be getting a new inside unit for this reason alone.

    Wish you the best on this and hopefully the guy is honest and compotent.

    The AHU is modular so I will list the numbers for each part

    Blower Section:
    Model# N2AHD10A06E
    Serial# ENDS327222

    Coil:
    I do not know the exact model or serial number for the coil but it is either G/HC030 or G-FC030 The "/" can equal 3 or C The "-" can equal 1 or A. The unit is a counterflow and I think that was a concern of the tech that York didnt make a counterflow coil that would fit the unit and be compatablr with the O/D unit.
