    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.

    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.

    I know of one that is exactly that way! The cover is actually expanded metal so he gets full air flow, but he didn't want to see the unit.
    Don't worry zombies are looking for brains, you're safe...

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