Dad has a rental house in another town.

House is heated by a hydronic gas furnace and a fireplace insert.

The living room is cooled by a single zone mini-split that is at least 13 years old.

Last July, that mini split stopped working because of a coolant leak. A local company topped off the R22 and replaced some small parts, and it has worked until now. Total cost was just under $1,000 for diagnostics, repair, parts and refrigerant.

It's currently freezing up, which I believe is due to low refrigerant pressure.

I'd like to recommend replacing the unit with a new one rather than nursing this one along.

Questions:
1) What can I expect to spend on a new unit in Spokane, WA?
2) Are there any ways to differentiate between installers?
3) Is there a preferred brand?
4) Do I need to specify R410A?

Anything else?

Don't have answers for the rest of your questions, but from what I've seen go Mitsubishi or bust.
