that would depend...

...on the expertise of the installer. are you asking as a DIY'er or from a professional standpoint? as a diy'er, i don't recommend doing your own ac work unless you have experience, understanding and proper equipment.

as for any pro doing that job...more often than not, compressor replacement is suggested because it takes experience and the right tools and equipment for a seal replacement.

if your choose having the seal replaced, i'd make sure i got a guarantee so that if the seal doesn't hold, you aren't out the full cost of a compressor replacement

I don't recommend a seal either. The reliability of a job like that is very poor.
