Question DetailsAsked on 6/4/2020

Should a new Evaporator Coil require modifications?

Our home warranty is replacing our Evap Coil but says there are modifications that aren't covered. These include a drain modification for 175, copper line modification for 100, and sheet metal and plenum for 500. Is this normal to have modifications for this type of replacement? I know nothing about HVAC. This unit was put in, in 2014 and is a Rheem. Thanks!

In my opinion, no, however these could be needed or not due to and incorrect installation. Meaning, drain line was not installed correctly, nor was copper sized corectly, plus plenums were sized incorectly. ou might want to et a second opinion at your own expense, to find out. This could be an attempt by the contractor to make a profit on a job that the Warranty Company pays them too little to make a profit. Hence a second opinion.This is why many contractors refuse to work for Warranty Companies, as we do.
