    For those of you familiar with Kemah, TX. I worked on these two a few years ago. Pretty common around here. I'd guess about 50% of the houses have access ladders.

    I wouldn't have worked on those packages but then again I'm selective.

    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    To unsafe to service...rent a lift and charge accordingly. But I agree, do ALL maintenance in one visit while lift is there, otherwise, service will be quite expensive. And a lift will be mandatory for all calls!!!

    Changed the blower today, they sprung for the lift. Scissor lift would work best but this got the job done. It went smoothly and felt very safe.

    Giterdone! You can kind of see why they put the units on the stands with the slope of the lot. If they were on the ground they would be 3 feet or so off the building and into the drive. Be careful and get a lift when you need it. You could prolly convince them to rent a lift and do thorough maintenance twice a year on all of them.

    And get them to let you run the flue up to meet code. Splain to them why its wrong and thats an easy sell.

    See installations like that near the coast here in FL. Sometimes mini splits 30' in the air make me shake my head.

    You can do just about anything in Philly, but not this the gas company would require a platform with a safety railing, and the gas company is owned by the City so you know this is not going to fly.
