    Dupont is working with Caltrel® Polymer Heat Exchangers. No corrision problems. They will with stand higher pressures than standard heat exchanger coils, there are no fins, ribs in the tubing help transfer the heat. The coils are not repairable which actually has a benefit if you've are made repeated repairs on the same coil.

    Ill get some pics next time I have the chance

    they hold up very well, if you leave them alone, if you disturb the spines they will fall off

    My experience is very similar to SwampFox's with the Trane/AS units. They do seem to hold up VERY well, but the spine-fins become brittle after 5 or so years. Even without spines, they'll still run quite well (hopefully they oversized 'em slightly to compensate for the coastal environment).

    Oh, c'mon, dog piss wins ever time. Only a little "extra" 120v/220v current running through the chassis stands a chance against that.

    I worked in Daytona Beach area for a few years and those coast gaurd units did okay but for in the differance in price id just buy a goodman or something else. The maytag did okay out there, they usually lasted for atleast 7 to 8 years, but we would coat the coils with a special coating to protect them better. Ive been to plenty of homes where the coils are shot in as little as 3 years and i hate telling the cust they are going to have to cut us another check for new cond. unit!
