Question about condensor replacement.

My 15 year old carrier 4 ton compressor went, I need to replace it. My friend has a goodman 13 seer r22 unit that is five years old that I can have for a couple bucks.

My question is, can I just replace the outside unit and use the same pipes and carrier air handler to get by for a while while I save some cash for a new high efficiency model?

Would it be a easy install?

Thanks for your opinion.

Be sure the licensed contractor that you get to install it also changes the filter drier and pulls a vacuum on the piping to the unit. I'd also recommend that the indoor coil has a TXV.

This would not be considered a DIY project.
