HVAC lines, cost to replace?
1 Attachment(s)
Hi All,

Attached is a picture of the 3 wires leading to the compressor outside to the furnace. It looks like they are pretty beat up from being tightened to hard. Since my ceiling is open, I was thinking about having them replaced. It might be about 20-25 feet from the compressor to the furnace. What are some rough estimates?

could not tell u from just that one pic.

don't know the suction line size. don't know how it's hooked up inside or out side.

more pics are in order.

Sure thing. Tell me exactly what you want to see and I'll go do it right now. Thanks for your time.

I do not see any wires. Copper pipe, another pipe wraped in insulation and some beat up duct tape is all I see.

There is another brown line, with a bunch of little wires inside. They look like the wires inside Cat5 sheathing.

$125 for service call
$250 for material
$300 for labor
$125 for freon evacuation and reinstall.

Call it a nice round $800 bucks, or you could call a local service company and have them out to give you a real quote.....your choice.

pull the bell(brown)wire wrap away from that suction/LL run is that what you talking about..whats that silver/gray stuff is there oil residue there?

On the left side is duct tape and on the right side is a metal clamp that was way over tightened and digging into the line.

there is no vibration there did the clamp cut into the copper or just the insulation

Trucon01 02-12-2012 09:35 AM

I believe just the insulation. But I figured since there are other spots where this happened and I am demoing the entire basement, I might as well have all new lines run.
