Re: Thirteen year-old electric heat-pump HVAC system: should we replace or repair?
All good answers.
I would recommend getting at least two more quotes for pressure switch replacement AND for total replacement before making your decision. Do not leave the unit jury rigged, as you will have to disclose this at time of sale, which will hurt you. Get it properly repaired and as far as you know the unit is good to go, even if it fails at the signing of escrow. You will even have a repair receipt to prove it.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
