A custom cover done by HVAC Covers


Here is a picture of a custom made cover made by....Hvac Covers, LLC

This is a cover for a Carrier Central Air unit...the model # Carrier 38 BRB030300.
Cover color: Brown.

Covers are made out of heavy duty exterior vinly, with a fuzzy/fleece like backing. Covers are custom designed to the make and model number of each unit. Cover allows for proper clearance ( air flow ) so condensation does not occur.

Re: A custom cover done by HVAC Covers


I've never understood covering an outdoor unit. They are painted with automotive grade paint, so if washed and waxed annually, they will last longer without covering them.

Also, since air is drawn through the coils from the outside/in, it really does not matter what debris gets down into them as long as the drain openings are not blocked.

More protection then covering them would be keep them raised off of the pad and out of the dirt and mulch.

This sounds perverted. Does this have any thing to do with picking your butt?

Just leaf them alone...they'll eventually mush out of the drain openings if the drain openings are not clogged. If the drain openings are clogged, fix the problem.

I've just seen more units harmed by covers then protected by them. The units don't need protection, but they sure do need to be open when they operate.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I'll sell em to you

What i find is a thick build up of of muck at the bottom from nesting critters. and build up from plant matter. That stuff don't hose out Robin.
Even with open drain ports. I have new install only a few years old with moss build up . That stuff will rust out the bottom of the condenser.

I include removing debris from the condenser in my annual C/Cs. Customer appreciate it and believe when I say I am well paid for it

Another good reason to not sell unit covers

If you are being well paid to clean out the bottoms of units, why would you want to take away that source of income?

I prefer to see all units, even straight air condensers, up off of the pad so that the bases don't rust out.

I don't disagree with you entirely, but covers won't stop critter nesting.

I don't trust covers entirely as I have found chemical reactions that stained the top of a condenser with a good quality paint. Since I do a lot of Nordyen the cover is not really an issue. The paint is a rough texture. haven't' seen any stains on the Nordyne condenser tops.

Re: A custom cover done by HVAC Covers


Not that I am condoning these either, but if all you want to do is to prevent debris from getting into the unit, why not just install one of those pop up covers that only cover the top of the unit?

At least that way you aren't breaking the wind for critters to who do like to nest in the units.

Re: A custom cover done by HVAC Covers


Didn't that product die a horrible death in a long thread in the pro forum at the other place?

I usually tell a customer who is confused by both the pro and con of full covers to just place a square piece of plywood of the the fan opening,
Keeps the leaves out at east and no condensation.

Question

Re: A custom cover done by HVAC Covers


I have made many covers over the years and NOT one was damaged by mice/mouse's.

The cover is for NON-SEASON/WINTER Use only. !!!

This is a custom cover, NOT the BLUE TARP, generic stuff in the stores

The Old board and brick just does'nt cut it anymore!

NOT covering your unit during the off season/winter time, does more harm that good by the Dirty Leaves, Pine Needle, Ice Snow, Acid Rain.


Why do you think people put CARS in there garage?> Same Paint, Medal Finish?......to protect there investment.

If anything, a cover will attract nesting critters due to the protection the cover provides. Sort of like turning your unit into a big critter condo.

Re: A custom cover done by HVAC Covers


I really shouldn't complain about people using condensing unit covers. If they do cause harm to the system, it is just more things for me to sell.

My grandfather rolls over in his grave every time I give my opinion of condensing unit covers. He used to custom make them for his friends when he was alive.
