    OMG they invented a water cooled condenser- WOW I wish I would have thought of it first. Maybe they can use the water for some heat recovery. Hay I think I'm on to something. And there are some systems I have run a hose on for temporary reasons.

    Those ducts are nuts! I have seen duct extensions made for economizers in cases where there was a gas fired appliance discharging its flue close to the economizer intake and a few times to avoid kitchen hood ventilators, but this doesn't appear to be the case at all here. Someone probably thought that the air near the roof might be a lot hotter than the air 6 feet up?

    Not really a poor idea, just poor execution. Here's a quick google result example of a bit better execution of the same idea: http://www.piec.com/precooler.htm
