    Hah

    That Goodman second from left in the 5th picture up looks relatively new.

    Carrier has a Coast Guard condenser for use in salt air.

    Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

    So do they just keep operating them until the head goes through the roof and shorts out the compressor or evap temps are so high due to low subcooling they just don't cool anymore? I suspect they still hold the charge?

    Yes, we change a lot of them due to high head pressure/no cooling, units usually last 4-7 years here, some brands hold up better than others, you get to see who makes quality coils here at least

    The Carrier coastal unit doesnt do that well either, Goodman outperforms them in many cases

    Yikes, makes for guaranteed work though!

    Has anyone tried the Maytag with the Stainless case on it? I think the fins are still aluminum though.

    Now I know why I want to move near the coast, job security.

    I guess you won't see any crackheads stealing the coils from those.
