    Are condensers that ugly?

    I can't believe a condensing unit is considered so "ugly" a person would want it hidden. It isn't any uglier than a gas meter, electric meter, cable/phone box etc.

    Hmm, price plus "one size fits one" could be a problem. Plus, what about airflow? Aren't we supposed to keep shrubbery away from CU's?

    I'm sure in the fine print it says to remove bush while unit operates.

    Apparently, it's intended to be in place while operating, and it does come in several sizes:

    People aren't steeling gas or electric meters, phone/cable boxes, or fake bushes. Besides, I think it looks kind of nice. It would go good with my astro-turf, fake trees, and plastic boulders.

    I would just hang my gun rack and NRA sticker by a window near the condenser.

    "TRiCC utility cover was field tested by a LEED certified engineering firm and showed no short cycling or overheating of equipment it covered.
    Lets see a test on efficiency levels... and on what conditions have they tested it?? i bet not when its 90 degrees outside.
    SIMPLE ENGINEERING PPL!!! There is no way this can work properly on a hot day!!
