Question DetailsAsked on 6/30/2014

Replacing 18 year old Central Air Conditioner,outdoor unit and new coil in existing air handler.

18 year old Lennox that now has trouble keeping up. Had it looked at today and they recommended replacement but want to replace everything. The air handler, blower and ductwork in the attic are good why not just replace the outside unit and a new inside coil in the existing air handler and of course the tubing between them? Is this practical? I felt they just want to sell me the most they can.

Here in Florida the Energy Code requires a complete matched system, which is a good thing for energy savings.

Finding a "matched" coil that will fit properly into an 18 year old air handler is about impossible, doubt it can be done ,without comprimising some thing.

If they want to replace all the duct system, I would want to know why! Could be valid,but why?
