    I forgot to include a photo of the inverter controller. Not shown is a large heat sink exposed within the condenser air flow area mounted behind this controler. Look on the bright side, this unit is not going to blow a China made run cap! PS do not ever put your finger on the end of those large round (4) capacitors.

    Study up, this is the future.


    Timer to shut down unit after 10PM, required by this City. I feel like the cap bandit, no place to mount the thing.

    Can't run the ac after 10pm WTF!!! That thing is silent anyway. I'd get run out of that town in a heartbeat, that's ridiculous.

    Yeah really. I want my ac to run when the thermostat calls for it. Even after 10. What time are they allowed to come back on?

    I am not saying what becomes of the timer after the city inspector does his sign off... 10PM - 7AM. This is a coastal city so air conditioning is more or less an option for a homeowner. They figure some people don't have one and with open windows are being disturbed at night. This unit works at 35% of capacity and can ramp up to 100% if the thermostat gets more than a 5° spread from set point. I think at night it would only run at 35% and the city would never understand this. The published sound number is a range depending on the output. I am just going along with the tide.
    These are the documents (edited without names) I had to provide to get a permit to install this a/c unit.

    It sounds like the ac won't be used much at all since you said its a option in that area. Why put such a high end system in? With such little use it seems like the payback over a standard 13 seer would take decades. It is a sweet system. Good looking install too.

    Believe me these people are going to be using this system. The ability to operate it anytime they want was a factor in the decision. They are not going to disturb anybody.

    What happens if the clock is "out of time". Do you get to go over there and reset the time and charge them a $100.00?

    California. Getting more of this nonsense with the crazies in charge. And its moving east to meet the rest of us. I feel for anyone trying to make an honest living out there.

    What does the timer break, and doesn't that throw a fault on the icomfort?

    Are you able to take the side panel off of the condensing unit with it that close to the wall?

    Change the board, I went to a nordyne IQ drive class a few years back and the solution to every problem you come accross is to replace the board... Lol.

    Terminals L and C are on the board behind the timer. C is common and if you send 24 volts to L it shuts down the unit without faults. L stands for load shedding so this is what the power company would have to do with there power interrupter box. Anyway it was designed to be done.

    You need a stubby 1/4" nut driver for panel removal. We don't have a choice of unit placement with OC land being worth more than Boardwalk. You still need to be able to walk by it.
