Trane A/C Leak - Repair or Replace
I have a 1996 Trane XE1200 (TTP024C100A2) that has been diagnosed with a refrigerant leak. My service company (who originally installed and continues to service the system) says the leak can not be repaired and that I must replace the unit (along with the evaporator coil in the inside air handler).
QUESTION: Can such leaks (which the tech said is in the condenser coil) typically be repaired? Is there a way for me (a pretty capable DIY guy) to locate the leak? If so, any tips on suspect locations and methods would be helpful.
The unit is one of two identical units installed to handle cooling in the house and both have given great service over the years. I'm hesitant to just throw one of them away if it can be repaired.
Thanks in advance.
