    BTW, your warranty is void.

    You can't learn a thing with your mouth open.

    Judging by the corrosion on that Goodman's coil, it looks like they're near the ocean. You would be lucky to get 10 years out of one even without the deck.

    I may have you beat here. We have units in parking structures, with broken down evap coolers, and seized fans, which are supposed to cool the area to lower Head Pressures. It has to be 130+ in those areas.

    Nah that deck or sub-deck has to be one of the worst places Ive seen in a while.

    No access. Units recycling discharge air.

    I'd put in a side discharge condenser, with the intake right up against the lattice.
    F the neighbors.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Equal opportunity offenders here. You'll notice most mfg's represented.

    I haven't put any under here, but we were working on one. When do you take a hard line with the crap? There always seems to someone ready to pick it up if you won't.

    I've had several employees who have worked in Iraq on bases doing HVAC. They all called it "The Big Suck". After doing residential service and replacement for a while and dealing with the crap, some are pining for the desert.

    I just saw 140+F entering condenser air today! 2 of 4 operating condensers in a parking structure, 110 ambient. 140 entering 135+ liquid line, 410A near 600psig high side, awesome!!! If I hangout there a while longer, 110 will feel like the arctic.
