    Help trouble shooting HVAC

    While doing my sister's garage ceiling drop, i cant help but noticed her unit outside the garage wasn't turning off-but running continuously. and i suspected there might be leaks in the windows etc . . after few days of temperature discomfort inside her house, she finally told me she had it checked out and its leaking and it will cost her 6-7k - so outrageous amount. Any thoughts? what could be the easy solution and proper approach on this?

    I just found out the system she has is almost 20-ish years old, about the unit lifespan, which makes sense if the local repair man keeps repairing it and convince my sister to just replace the units. Thanks for insights

    Chris, this is a forum for construction professionals. We don't give DIY advice, but in your case it doesn't matter. Clearly you don't have the knowledge or the equipment to work on HVAC.

    I recommend you find a reputable local HVAC contractor. If your sister already had a good contractor look at it, they should have given her a complete report on what they found and what they proposed to do. You can look at that report and take it from there.
