    Evaporator Coil leakage

    I am down on Carrier heat pumps because of poor quality in the evaporator coil. The material used in manufacturing must be very poor. The coil only lasted less than 5 years. The warranty on the coil is only 1 year. The cost of replacing the coil is about as much as what I paid for the whole new unit. This seems ridiculous to me! I have called Carrier and they will not help me out in the replacement at all. I would not recommend Carrier unless you can afford a 10 year extended warranty, which is also ridiculous. You would think a heat pump should last at least 10 years!

    DISSATISFIED WITH PRODUCT AND WARRANTY

    I have had a Carrier Heat pump and associated a/c units. They have been regularly serviced and maintained by a certified Carrier dealer. I have had numerous problems with electrical relays and motors. Most recently the tech has found many leaks in the system requiring the entire unit to be replaced at a HUGE price! Over $12,500.
    The unit is only 7 years old!!! OUT OF ANY WARRANTY according to the Carrier dealer.
    Very dissatisfied.
    Looking for a quality system – if it is available.
