Generally, depending on age of unit, you can replace a coil - rarely repair. This assumes this is a central air unit, not a through-wall or window type unit - window or direct through-wall type units it is rarely economic to replace the coil - usually total unit replacement is the solution because their normal life is generally well under 10 years, and the installation cost is generally quite a bit less than for a central air unit.

Here are a couple of previous similar questions with answers - you can find more in the Home > HVAC link under Browse Projects, at lower left discussing the issues and economics involved in R-22 (Freon) versus newer R-410a refrigerant based systems, and about the repair versus replace entire unit cost tradeoff and issues for older or R-22 units.
