Estimate to repair or replace?
I am an Home owner in Palm Harbor , Florida . I have a 12 year old Trane model TWR060dD with a heat pump. The air conditioner has not been cooling well , especially when the temperature rises above 80 F . For the last three months I have had various companies come and work on it , but to no help . From Feb 2011 they have re charged R-22 Freon ( three times in three months ), changed the fan motor , capacitor , then last another capacitor on the compressor .Finally yesterday the AC stopped working , the new tech says that he needs to replace the whole system ,because he smells freon in the coils , there is a Freon leak, it needs a new compressor , a defrost board, acid away, dicer (stow) . Please help
If it is to replace then the warranty company says it will replace like to like ...so what should I look for . My house is 2700 sq ft and single floor , with large windows.
