An air conditioner coil is a very important part of your air conditioner as it’s responsible for connecting with the outside condensing unit via a copper lineset and will complete the cooling circuit of the refrigerant in your system as it’s being circulated by the compressor.

Over time, these coils may be damaged due to some factors such as a refrigerant leak, dirt buildup, corrosion, and/or normal wear and tear.  Whatever the cause, a damaged coil will either make your air conditioner work harder or it may not work at all.

    The coil was less than 4 years. Coil and labor were covered under manufacturer’s warranty. However, HVAC contractor charged the following charges:
    $150.00 to dispose of the contaminated coil
    $250.00 to recover and dispose of old Freon (stated that since it was exposed to air, could not be recycled)
    $175.00 to install a condensate pan float switch now required by law but was not required 4 years ago.
    $250.00 to recharge the system with R410A. ($25/lb x 10 lbs).
