Obsolete Goodman R22 Coil Need Replacement
I have a Goodman 5 1/2 ton Split System thats 8 years old
I just had the compressor replaced 3 weeks ago under warranty (still cost $)
Now the Coil is leaking and needs replaced. Goodman part is obsolete.
What are my options of using an ADP Coil (other mfg) coil? Downsides? Also, I'll be putting my house up for sale soon, and am not sure whether doing this would affect passing a home inspection.
Really, really can not afford a new system just because of obsolete coil.
Any advice appreciated.

5 ton ADP coil should be fine. That's what we'd use.
As I'm not a AC guy, forgive any uninformed questions.
When choosing which ADP Coil, what are the considerations? Seer of existing Goodman system, 5 1/2 ton vs 5 ton, Updraft (it is an updraft system) vs. Up/down draft?
When replacing the evap coil, do they replace entire evap coil housing cabinet, or remove the evap coil from existing cabinet and replace with new unit (reusing the existing cabinet?
Any other considerations I should ask the AC guy about when negotiating this situation?
Thanks again for information.
Many times they will re-use the existing cabinet if it fits and seals to the coil. Saves you paying for sheetmetal changes. You have a 5 ton system, never made a 5 1/2 ton system. If it's a standard efficiency system, then they'll use a standard efficiency coil, if it's a 13 to 16 SEER, then they'll want a coil rated for that kind of efficiency. I'd also ask for a filter dryer (#16 size) be installed in the liquid line ahead of the new coil at same time as coil is changed. If your existing cabinet is rusted, then I'd ask that they change complete coil and cabinet.
Thanks for the information, regarding the Coil(s) and Cabinet, and Dryer. Also the second post on the CAPF4861. It appears that Dual Refrigerant Coil may be a suitable "Goodman" replacement? I will call Goodman to confirm.
Thanks again for the help. Great web site and forum!!!
I'd rather have an ADP coil than another Goodman personally
Are you sure you have a 5 1/2 ton unit?
I wanna see a model number on that condenser.
"Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."
"Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."
"Just get it done son."
ADP is way better than a Goodman coil
