Customer Question

I have a Goodman 5 ton unit that the compressor is about to go out on it uses R22. My question is should I replace just the outside unit and continue using the heating unit inside or replace them both? What unit or units should I replace them with? About what will it cost I live in Waco Texas.
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: OK
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: No a HVAC repair person had to put a hard start kit on it to make compressor come on. So I am looking into replacing unit he wants to replace with heat pump which I cannot afford. So I am looking into other options.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: NO
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Did you get information about my current unit

Hello, one minute while I get some information together.

Replace the set both indoor coil and outside unit. For the money I think any of the Goodman units are good and easy to get parts for and repair. The cost to replace the set will run about 2500-3000 for the outside and indoor coil. If you replace the furnace as well it will likely run 4000. If the furnace is working good I would leave it, just tell the guys to set up the plenum so the furnace can easily be changed when the time comes.
