What exactly is wrong with the a/c? If the compressor still works (clicks on under the hood when you turn on the a/c) then you may just need a refill. You can purchase a refrigerant refill from most auto parts stores for $80 and save yourself a lot of money.
If there is a leak in the lines or they are contaminated than $1400 isn't completely unrealistic. My suggestion is to get more than one opinion and have them print off a quote so you don't get screwed over
â¢ Other Questions
will a old eval coil work with a new ac condenser?
most likely no.
chances are the old coil uses a refrigerant that is currently being taken out of production. you probably wont be able to find a condenser that matches it. even if you do, the new condenser will be "dry shipped" meaning without refrigerant.
buying the obsolete refrigerant would probably cost more than the new evap coil would cost. you will cause yourself less headaches in the future If you change the coil with the condenser. best to pony up now and buy the new coil too.
unless there is a warranty claim on an almost new component, its always recommended to change them both at the same time.
Is my ac vent separate from my downstairs smoking neighbor if my air intake is inside my room?
Its extremely a enormously propose element to do.
only think of roughly that undesirable guy applying to artwork on a warm summer season day along with his vehicle wreaking of moldy canine crap. whilst he gets to his interest he will have that poor stench throughout his outfits. he will probable get fired for stinking so undesirable and then it's going to be all your fault.
Your neighbor could act like a caught up prick yet no person merits a warm vehicle with canine poop in it no be counted how ignorant they are

the condenser where does it drip from?
The evaporator will create condensation not the condenser and the moisture will come from the fire wall cavity drain.
If you have fluid accumulation near the radiator, you need to have the cooling system pressure tested to determine where the fluid is coming from. Is the fluid clear or does it look like engine coolant? This test can be done for free in some shops and a small fee in others.
It will answer the question as to where the fluid is coming from. Are you having to add to the cooling system? If so this is telling you something
Why does my AC not work?
Could be outside fan is not operating. When this happens the compressor will overheat and shut down. It has an internal overload protection.
Could be fan, or capacitor, or relay, or circuit board (on some models), etc. After ac has been shut off for some time and allowed to cool, you could turn it back on for a sew seconds or a minute to see if the compressor does start. Then turn it back off.
The buzzing you hear is probably the contactor for the compressor. Not unusual. Doesn't necessarily mean it is bad
why does my cars coolant temp go up after my A/C has been on for about a half hour?
To add to Gomer's answer, the engine is also being loaded by the A/C compressor. Check to make sure the condenser and radiator are not plugged up with bugs, dirt and other debris too. If there is crud plugging up tubes on the INSIDE, a simple back-flush will rarely help.
This crud can only be removed by doing a "rod out", which is the practice of pushing flat metal rods through all the tubes. TODAY'S radiators, however, are mostly designed to be replaced, not repaired. 30 years ago, we could disassemble it, clean it out, put it back together, fix leaks, paint it, and put back into service.
Air Handler, AC condenser, well pump, pool pump.Order of labor intensity to replace?
Depends on the size of the system and access to it, and where you are in the country.
But for a general idea here you go: Air Handler $2100 AC Condensor: $1500 Well Pump less100' deep $1400 over 100' $2000 Pool Pump $1500 These are general costs which would believe we have easy access to the situation the home is no more than 2500sf Everyone of these items will have its own challenges, but the air handler followed by the well are usually the top issues for replacement If you are in teh tri-state are feel free to contact us www.caparosoandsons.com we renovate many homes and would be glad to help you
How do I replace the AC Condenser on a 1998 Cavalier?
Do you have the thousands of dollars of equipment to pull down the system , catch all the gas ( I assume you have a full system, or is your's broken and open now ? ), and the special tools to remove the device? If you don't, you're better off letting someone else do it.
You're not legally allowed to crack the A/C system and let it vent into the air. That's a minimum $10,000 fine in the USA, if I remember correctly. So, unless you can borrow the equipment to do it correctly, you will have to pay to have it done right
What could you do to make AC unit run more efficent?
make sure you change the filters every month, more if you have pets. Have your unit checked out by a reliable service person to make sure nothing needs to be replaced. Make sure you have tight seals on your doors and windows.
If not, add some. Also, check your insulation and make sure you don't need to add more (over time it settles and becomes less efficient-found that out the hard way and am looking at adding some to my attic.) Close off the vents in rooms that are not in use.
Make sure there isn't anything in front of the filter vents affecting the air flow. Hope this helps.
my air conditioner runs for a while and shuts off - the furnace fan keeps running but the ac fan stops?
If you don't take care of the condenser unit and keep it clean then you can expect to replace another capacitor. This sounds to me like the fan motor is shutting down on thermal overload. When the thermostat calls for cooling and the compressor is running, stick something down in the cage and try to get the fan started.
If it takes off, the start winding is going bad. If it doesn't, have a tech come out and replace the condenser fan motor. If you live anywhere within 75 miles of Sherman Tx I can get there before noon and solve your problem and save you some money.
My AC is broken on bmw 318is e36, it has anti freeze, but how can i do a easy fix, if their is one?
ANTIFREEZE IS FOR THE ENGINE COOLANT SYSTEM ,NOT FOR A/C SYSTEM. IF THE A/C IS NOT BLOWING COLD, IT COULD BE SEVERAL THINGS SUCH AS FROZEN A/C COMPRESSOR, A/C CLUTCH OR A/C CONTROLLER NOT WORKING, SYSTEM HAS A LEAK, ELECTRICAL PROBLEM, OR ENGINE COOLANT SYSTEM NOT FUNCTIONAL.
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT INVOLVE A WELL TRAINED MECHANIC TO DIAGNOS YOUR VEHICLE. AVERAGE COST ABOUT 100. 00 TO FIND OUT WHY THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAY ON.
YOU CAN DRIVE THE VEHICLE WITH THE A/C COMPRESSOR PULLEY STILL SPINNING AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT NOT FLASHING
When adding a ac condenser to forced air furnace do I need to insulate the plenum that is located in the attic?
The reason you have to insulate the duct work is that the metal ducts will get cold from the cool air running through them. The metal conducts heat and the heat will be drawn out of it by the air.
The cold metal that is exposed to the humid attic will have condensation form on it much like a cold glass will have water condense on the outside of it. This condensation will drip on to your ceiling and start to damage insulation and eventually show up as a "leak" on the inside finished surfaces. To avoid this damage you insulate the ducts.
How do you replace a condenser on a 2007 Corolla?
So much for buying something you didn't need. The old one could have been repaired at a lot less money and no matter what you will still need the system recharged.
I hate to inform you but you are spending money you say you don't have for nothing. The condenser is really easy to take out, just unhook everything and take out. (weld a condenser because the aluminum is so thin) Wrong, you have to know what you are doing.
mine was repaired and still doing good.that was 9 years ago.
Im looking at a 1995 honda civic hatch back that is lacking AC how much would it be to fix this?
unless the ends of the ac lines are taped off don't bother. if those lines were left open for an extended period of time there will be dirt and crap in condenser core which will cause compressor failure in realitively short time. You do have the option of getting all new parts for an integra and trying to rig it from there but that will entail a LOT of fabrication to make work.
You would be talking about spending more on the A/C than the car is worth. NEVER install used A/C parts must by new any impurities in cooling system will cause failure of compressor in fairly short time.
My outside ac unit makes a screeching/whining sound-any ideas?
It sounds like the bearings on your a/c fan motor are going out. You'll probably end up needing to have the motor and capacitor replaced. Or it could be the internal bypass inside the compressor, and if that's the cause, there could be a whole set of problems causing that; bad compressor, too much refrigerant, dirty condenser coil, etc.
You can take a water hose to the outside condenser coil and spray them really good to clean the dirt inside them, it may help; but I'll bet it something else.
can a 89 ford 250 heater work with out ac condencer?
Actually, The core inside your truck is for the heating of the interior air.
If you bypass the "heater core" you will not get warm air from your vents or defrost. A new heater core is cheap and simple to replace in a truck like this. Just drain the radiator and dis-connect the hoses to the heater core in the engine bay.
(under the hood). Then look under the dash to see what it takes to open the hetaer box under the dash on the passenger's side. Once opem the box should come out with relative ease.
Put the new one in and reverse the procedure. Godd luck and Happy Ford-ing ! !
Where To Find AC For A 92 Geo Metro?
Take it from a Metro guy here, don't bother!
On top of it being more expense than what you probably paid for the car, AC on the 3 cylinders really bogs it down, and makes mpg's get ugly too! I have a '90 XFI and wouldn't think about installing AC. I got mine to save on gas, and have even made a few mods to get a consistent 48 mpg.
That is good enough for me to be able to bear a little heat. I just roll down the windows and keep moving!
even if my house gets cold, the ac does not stop, what can i do to make it automatic?
If its lets say 80 degrees outside then yes it possible that the unit will run non stop. Now if in the late evening its still running. You either have a faulty thermostat (if mechanical I suspect that may be the issue) If the Air filter is pretty dirty this can add to the problem.
IWhen is the last time you has the condenser cleaned (ac unit outside)? That too can play a factory in abnormal run times. As long as the unit is not freezing up.
Thermostat Air flow issue Dirty condensing unit Possible undersized system (but this would have been a problematic issue from the get go)
