I'm looking at buying a house that has an old HVAC unit. I'm looking to get an idea on what it's going to take and cost to replace this when it goes out. That is assuming it's operational now, which i am going to assume it's not. All i have is this picture. From what i've heard they haven't made these heat/ac units for a long time. Any advice at all will be greatly appreciated.
i would definitly replace that unit The burn marks around the right side show that its not firing up right on heat. You need to look on the manufacturer tag on the unit and see how many btu's for cooling and heating for starts. Ask if there have been any add-ons to the house since the unit was installed.If there have the amount of btu's may not be enough now to cool and heat the house right.
