AIr handling unit
Hi all: So our air handling unit is leaking. Last time it was a clogged drain, but this time the technician says it is a leaking drain pan. He further says that the coil and pan are one unit and so although the coil is fine, and only the pan needs replacing it is not possible to do it. Best to replace both, and since replacing both is about as expensive as getting a new system, get a new air handling system. Can someone please confirm that this is good advice? or do you think it is pretty feasible to just change the pan? Secondly, the tech also says that it should not be necessary to replace both teh compressor outside and the airhandler inside. (another shop i spoke with on the phone indicated that indeed given federal laws on 13cyr systems, we would have no choice but to do both at the same time). Does anyone have a comment on that too? It all feels really opaque and i'd appreciate any guidance you can provide. This is my first experience dealing with this issue.
