Need new furnance- is this coil compatablie to AC unit
I have a 2007 York Affinity 15.5 seer outside AC unit. Need new furnace and have a quote on a Carrier Infinity 80. I was told the coil on the York AC would have to be replaced by Carrier coil CNPHP3612ATA. Will this void the warranty on my AC unit?
What brand, model, eFf, age is the furnace you plan to replace?
I think it's important to have a matching coil and AC condenser.
I would like to know why Carrier dealer recommends the replacement of your evap coil.
If this was my decision, I would probably look at a York furnace to keep everything of same manufacturer.
Do you mind sharing your location?
Is the current coil matched to the York? If so, I'd tell that Carrier guy to take a hike. If not, then a new coil should be installed but like Tiger said, should be a York coil. The coil should match the unit, critical with high SEER. If you want another brand of furnace, fine.
no reason they cant use the exsisting coil and make what ever adaptions needed to make it work with the carrier furnace
i agree if you change the coil then it should be matched to the york condenser
My current furnace (the circuit board no longer works) is a 1990 York that is not variable speed. The coil and AC condenser are matched up - in April a new coil put in because originial was defective - York did not place recall on it but took care of it when customers called in due to AC not working. Dealer said coil will not match up with Carrier. Richmond VA
21 year old condenser with a new coil
you wont get to much more life out of the old dog and may be time to replace everthing and save some money on operating cost of the ac unit
maybe you can get a better deal by replacing everything at the same time
it should be adaptable somehow to the new furnace..wether a duct transition.
the coil doesnt know what furnace blows air thru it..
will it be more work than a carrier coil ? perhaps - but a good installer should be able to do it
tin, it's a 4 year old outdoor unit and new coil.
No way should a Carrier dealer throw away a brand new matched coil to sell you his. That is nuts. If he can't keep it, he shouldn't be installing. What a ripoff.

get a new quote
what size and btu is the old furnace and what size and btu is the proposed furnace .
Using a Carrier coil will make your A/C a mismatch, and you could end up with a lot lower SEER A/C. Get quotes on a York Affinity furnace.
What is your location?
Here is link to York furnaces.
I would want to try and get a matching system if at all possible.
What's the model number of the coil you have installed now? Was it replaced at the same time as the outdoor unit in 2007?
