Re: Who wants to wwork on this one?


Have seen a few like that one. Worst part is that in some narrow homes there is no room between the 2 homes to install a new unit as the walkway is there. Plus the new units have a much larger footprint. May end up putting the unit on the deck and buying a ultra quiet model like the Lennox XC15 or others.

Re: Who wants to wwork on this one?


That is the reason I got out of contracting and went into manufacturing rep and distribution

Even now I have to contend with some head knockers though. I just installed a new heat pump for my brother. The heat pump is under stairs going to his upper deck. I hit my head at least a dozen times when I work on this thing.

Re: Who wants to wwork on this one?


Actually, I had a customer who had a very similar set up as this. The difference may have been that he had an opening built around the unit large enough for me to get into from the top of the deck, so it really wasn't that bad.

Re: Who wants to wwork on this one?


i went under a dark deck just ONCE, but never again.

When I got to the unit I was mugged by a family of Raccoons.

They got me good.

They didn't pull a permit to add the deck.

Great idea: hide the A/C under the deck so the house/property tax assessor cannot see it and you pay less taxes.

Re: Who wants to wwork on this one?


Seen a few like that only had to actualy get down and dirty on one though.I just seen a good one last week two single wide mobile homes butted together. With a 5 ton unit on top so said the h o I took his word for it wasnt about to climb up and see they looked like 1960s or 70s modle trailers had to tell him I,m not that guy. Dont climb on antic mobile home roofs. It looked unsafe as it gets .STORMAN NORMAN.
