Is evap coil made of copper?
I was told to take my lineset to the scrapyard myself because of high copper scrap prices. I did verify that it is up to $3.00-$3.20/lb my local yards. I have approx 70 feet (35 each way) which from what I'm told and have read is about 20-30 pounds. The yard is 6 miles away so totally worth it.
A poster on this forum told me he got $150 for his lines and coil. That was a couple months ago,when copper was lower price. I dont know how many feet his lines were.He says the coil is made of copper and obviously they will be removing it as I'm getting the whole new system. I don't know the ac or coil models off hand. The ac was a Lennox from 1996, 10 seer or so. The furnace was a g26.
Is it likly the coil has a good amount of copper? Will it be a big deal for the installers to leave me the coil? They are not subs, this company uses their own employees if that matters.
I don't want to take apart everything, but the person told me they just took the coil and the tubing without taking anything apart. Seems easy enough!
