    Anybody use these isolators on a trane condensing unit?

    I am looking to cut down the noise that is being transferred through my walls.

    Since you're asking this question in the middle of winter, are you speaking of a pure cooling system or a heat pump that both heats and cools? If the former, then yes, we use them all the time as they're shipped with the units in a plastic bag. If the latter, the unit should be elevated on pump-ups so the HP can drain during defrost cycles and in that instance we do not use isolators.
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    I second that comment.

    It is a heat pump. Here is a picture. How can I tell if it is on pump-ups?

    Do you have a pic of pump ups and can you tell me what they are? Will they help the resonance issue that I am having?

    I found a pic of the pump-ups. I would say less than 1 out of every 10 in my complex has those. Most of them are just mounted on a pad directly on the ground. They are not even elevated on blocks like mine.
    Do the Trane HPs require pump-ups and will the rubber isolators be enough instead?

    We use to get them quarterly on Arizona Trane's web-site thanks to a GREAT FSR named Eric Weist " spelling". Unfortunately for us he moved to Tyler for a new job with Trane in product development.

    jimj, according to that PDF of the Trane Tracks news letter, there were 3 parts to the series and one part was structureborne, which you posted, and one was airborne. Do you have the "airborne sound transfer" edition of that news letter?
