evaporator coil gone in central ac should I just replace the AC

I have a Westinghouse Central AC, evaporator coil gone and they want $1253. to replace and they told me it will
be a 3/week wait to get the part. Should I just replace AC, it is 10yrs old came with new house.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

I'd say replace it. Too much chance of another major failure, and the 1253 could have gone towards a new systemwith a ten year parts warranty. Plus you'll likely buy a systrem that is much more efficient and lower your electric bill starting now.

As a AC contractor ,we find most all people replace in your situation.

Yes, replace it. How to save money:

1. Don't buy from major advertised brands. Trade, carrier, etc all have other brands that cost less with same parts.

2. Negotiate for 5-10 labor warranty included
