HVAC Condenser Replacement Options
I’ve owned my 23 year old house for less than 1 year. It has 2 HVAC zones (upstairs/downstairs) forced air heating/cooling with propane heating. The winter heating was very expensive and I’m working on re-insulating my basement now and air sealing and re-insulating my attic in the fall.
My first floor condenser unit died. A leak somewhere in the condenser unit and there’s no refrigerant left. I can pay $1500+ for someone to hopefully fix the leak and recharge the system, but is there a greener option that I can replace it with that might help with my heating bills in the winter as well? I’m assuming the cost of propane is only going to increase this winter.
