Dear Tech--I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am within 1000 feet

Customer Question

Dear Tech--I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am within 1000 feet of the ocean. I have a York 4-ton central a/c unit on my roof. The unit is 6 something years old and is currently out of service due to a leak (the third) and a broken fan motor. The salt air corrosion on the unit is bad. This is my 2nd York unit and my last. The units need to be removed and placed on the roof by crane which stands in the street. The whole process takes about one half an hour and then the crane leaves.
Additionally the roof directly under the unit needs to be repaired ASAP. I re-roofed the house last year, but not under the a/c unit. Waiting until a leak comes down into my living room will cost a fortune to repair as the ceilings are about 20'.
I am a believer in the truism that you get what you pay for and I do not want to have this problem for another 10 years. I am looking for a premium Lennox unit.
My roofer is coming Friday and the plan is to completely disassemble the York, move it to the side by man power and perform the roof repair. When the roof repair is completed remove the York and replace with a totally new unit.
I need a Lennox dealer who will work with me on this. HELP!!!
Thanks very much. Craig
