Yep, it's true. Rheem condensing unit, York AHU and a after market coil in it and the AHU cover has some extra holes in it covered with tape.
After the last two years of not using a filter I waited for the hottest day of the year to pull the coil and clean it. I then went outside and removed the cover off the Rheem unit and cleaned the coils, leveled the unit and got the leaves out. It is still a Heinz 57 but works great and I may even go buy a filter for it. There is no where to send the bill.
I had planned on running the system only for a year and then removing it and putting the equipment in the garage because I hate attic installs and removing the duct system completely then I had the similar experience HVAC 45 is having. The bill is dirt cheap anyway. So now the plan is doing it in fall
