Do I need to replace air handler and compressor?

I have a Trane heat pump which is seven years old. I have been told the coil is leaking and it is irreparable therefore the airhandler will have to be replaced. Is this true? It also uses R22 freon and the industry is phasing this type of freon out. Do I need to replace the compressor also? If so, at the same time the air handler is installed?

SOunds like you have a company that is trying to make some extra $$'s. You can get just the coil. I'd get a second opinion. If they are trying to upsell you might not even have a leak in the coil but may have a leak at a connection to the coil.
