Customer Question

I have a Rheem RAKB-024JAZ MFD 3/05, installed 8/05. Was told today that the R22 Condessor is shot and I would need to replace it. Can you give me some insight into the lifespan for this part/unit and the ball park cost to replace?

The cost to replace the 2 ton Rheem compressor would run about 1500 including compressor,refrigerant driers and labor. Life expectancy of these unis is 12 to 15 years.

Would be more practical if you are able, to put tis money towards entire system replacement.
