Look closely and you can see the hole on the bottom left hand side of the picture. This A/C leak destroyed flooring and trim in home. The home owner had to have the evaporator coil replaced to stop the leaking water into the hall way of their home.
Electrical shorts were caused by this A/C drain not being properly maintained. Luckily the home owner was home when the short occurred and shut the A/C unit off at the electrical breaker. Otherwise it could have caused a serious and hazardous fire!
Look at the mold growth on this air handler in the attic. The mold from the backed up drain was so bad it was growing on the outside of the A/C equipment! This mold contaminated air is being introduced to their home and lungs! Please do not let a drain issue persist, it can cause serious damage and cost many of dollars to repair after the fact.

The cost for a new a/c unit or system can be very complex. In fact there is not a simple straight forward answer without some detailed information gathered at your home or business.
For example: You have may have a 5-year old complete heating and cooling system and it just went out of factory part warranty coverage and your indoor equipment (furnace and evaporator coil) are in good shape and have more life in them. You may not need to purchase the entire system, just the outdoor a/c condensing unit is all you need. Especially if it operates on the newer 410A refrigerant. So all you need is an estimate for the outdoor equipment and this may save you thousands of dollars in replacement cost.
Another example: You have a 11 year old complete system, operating on R22 refrigerant (R22 is the old refrigerant that is being deleted by the year 2020) and you find out you have a leak in the evaporator coil and the compressor is weak on the outdoor unit when it runs! But the system is a heat pump system set-up on dual fuel (gas furnace inside instead of an air handler) and the furnace has hardly been used because the heat pump has been used for all the heating for your home or business. The furnace may be of value for another 10-years if it is in good shape, which means you may only need to replace the evaporator coil and the outdoor unit -heat pump.
Last example, but here are many I could use: You have a 20-year old complete heating and cooling system and you have had a major failure with the outdoor condensing unit, the compressor has failed and needs to be replaced. The evaporator coil holds a charge but it looks like it is about to fail any minute and the air handler looks like it has been standing in water with all the rust you can see from the outside and inside! It’s time! Time to replace all the equipment and get a new 10-year factory part warranty on a new complete system – indoor and outdoor equipment.

As you may be able to see from the picture, a dog chewed into the bottom of this return air plenum which is located in the garage. The furnace being located in a garage area is very common, the furnace platform or return air platform/plenum in this case is one piece. So the outdoor air that is in the garage area is being pulled into the heating and cooling system. Then the heating and cooling system must heat or cool the outdoor air, not the conditioned air in the home. And this my friends is not good!
Your heating and cooling system is now responsible for heating and cooling conditioned air that it has conditioned in addition to outdoor air. This system will never keep you comfortable! So, check those HVAC units that are located in the garage. You never know what they have been subjected too in the past few weeks or months and may need to be repaired. Check them especially if you are having system performance problems or concerns.
Pets, bicycles, lawn mowers, cars and really any moving object can penetrate the old sheet rock casings for older systems. And penetrations are bad!
Call A.I.R. Plus if you need help with your system. We would love to help you!
Have a blessed day!
