    How'd you like to change a compressor on this thing???

    5 stories up... The unit was installed like 4 months ago, job isn't done yet. I'm hoping the inspector says something. 20$ says the ductwork isn't r-8 either.

    The ductwork looks nice. I just don't understand why it was not installed on the lower roof. Looks like there is nothing on it.

    That is one of the the nicest looking disgusting monstrosities I've ever seen.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    There is a wooden guard-rail, it's on the lower deck. Would you believe that whoever installed it never plans on servicing it?!

    I am sure there is a reason the unit is not on the lower deck... however a lot of $$$ went into putting it up there...

    I suspect an inspector will have lots of fun with that install.

    don't let OSHA catch you working on that thing

    The guardrails are on the lift you need to service it

    The phrase is usually: "That's SERVICE'S problem!"
