Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite.

At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need.
Are you talking about replacement of the whole air handler? Or just the evap coil?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Just the coil. The indoor fan is working fine. The outdoor unit compressor is working fine. The cooling coil has a leaking drain pan. The coil itself has some corrosion at the base. The copper tubes looks ok.

Coil is going to run around $400 (wholesale) plus markup (and this varies from shop to shop), and I would figure around $4-500 in labor so I wouldn't be surprised if this turned into around a $1000 job.
