Seems legit... It's nice during low ambient temperatures. You don't have to cover the top while checking.

You're trying to tell me that they failed to cover it with a blanket or at least a tarp?! How's the poor thing gonna keep warm on those harsh winter days?

It would be a lot funnier if they had a trap door over the fan-incase you needed to change the compressor.Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

Ive seen a few of these, one I know of is an old Maytag that they built a deck over, you have to crawl in fifteen feet to get to it, and you can't get the fan out. Needless to say it died a horrible death.I r the king of the world!...or at least I get to stand on the roof and look down on the rest of yall

20 years ago Sis lived in a townhouse. Cement patio by the front door of hers and neighbors, stairs up either side. Bushes solid in front of it. Under said entryway was 2 clunker GE condensers. Hers quit so I had to crawl through the bushes under there where I found a fuse blown. With just the neighbor's running, I about passed out from the heat under there. Lucky they were GE Climatuffs I guess.

Cut a hole in the floor and you have a perimeter heater for the porch.Effort is the 1st step towards failure.
