Failed Compressor-makes mechanical noises when starting and not pressurizing the system as is. I have a provider who is willing to install a compressor for what I think is a good deal as compared to replacing the entire system. (Goodman 5 Ton - put into the house when new in 1994 - said it was 10 SEER when new????)
Would replacing just the compressor be a good idea?
My concern is there is "stuff" that the failed compressor put into the system and has contaminated the lines/rest of the system and will cause problems going forward if I replace the compressor.
Is there anything that can be done to "clean the system" from the contamination from the failed compressor?
What say you?
Thank you for your feedback!
