This is my first rental property. When I purchased the property I did not pay attention to the aging A/C. The tenants have complained about the A/C compressor freezing over. Upon inspection the A/C repair service found a few things.
1) The furnace and the outside unit are the original units from 1998/1999 still using freon. 2) The coils and furnace do not match evenly and the coils overlap the side of the furnace by a few inches. Ultimately the air is not hitting the coils and evaporating the water, causing the compressor to freeze. I can replace just the furnace at this time while likely having to replace the coils and outside unit in the near future. $2,488 Now $3,196 Later OR I can replace the entire unit $6,085 Does anyone have any input on how I can handle this?

I would get more than 1 estimate and find out if this really is the case. If you do the job all at once, you should get a better price than if you split into 2 stages. Your quote shows the opposite. I find this very odd. If you have the cash flow, take whatever approach yields the best results at the lowest total cost.

Every things has an expiration also, so brand new is the best choice even its kinda expensive but atleast you have no hassle of trouble after all.

If you can afford buying a new unit, go for it. If not, get it inspected one more time. See what suits you the best. __________________ Hunter Rentals & Property Management
