Last night my central a-c blew up, now I am in trouble!

All the freon or whatever coolant they use now blew out of the unit outside. I heard a loud noise and all this stuff was blowing out of it and a bunch of oil seemed to come out too. I ran over to Homo Depot and got two window units so I now have two rooms with A-C. Does this mean I need a new central A-C? How much will it cost and who should I call?? I live in cardinal glen in the Burke area. I dont want to get ripped off by some shitty company. Thanks.

I'm guessing you're gonna grow up quickly as bills start coming due.

Sounds like your compressor blew up, time for a new one. If you DIY it can be fixed for $500 or less assuming r410 system. If you can't, get the lube ready because you're going to get fucked up your ass really hard. I used plumbing solder , never changed the filter drier, used mapp gas with no oxygen to braze the new compressor in and my copeland scroll purrs up like new after 5 years. The HVAC cartel wanted $7000 for a new system. You can probably find a day laborer who will put in the new compressor for $100 if you're too scared to braze it in yourself. Beer can cold on the low side when you're filling her back up and she's as good as new. Everything you need to know can be found on Youtube.

Dude, you got two window units and I assume one of them is in your bedroom? You will have a nice cool room to sleep in and another cool room to hang out in. Did you know that the majority of people on this planet have no air conditioning at all? Be happy to have what you got and stop being a crybaby. Just live through the summer with the window units and get some quotes for a new system in the fall when hvac companies are slow and hungry for work.

Just let Amazon home services take care of it. 1200 bucks is all it takes.

Does that include installing a new evap coil and charging the unit? If so not bad.
