    The only way that would have a prayer of working would be to rig a squirrel cage fan in there

    Come on guys! These are really heatpumps for the building next door. I can hardly believe that anyone would actually do this. Hacks!!!

    Wow. I haven't seen anything that crazy sine I worked for DNC in Phoenix.
    They installed two American Standard Over/Under RTU's in a attic type space in a church.

    Installed HARD DUCT ontop of both units and over to a exhaust fan through the concrete.

    The bad thing was you could never access the condenser fans because it was HARD DUCT all the way!

    It looks like the basement walls are blocking the air flow on two sides for the one on the left and at least one side on the other.

    Quick question: (I know it's a hack and all...) Does it cool the house?

    That company’s slogan had to have been:

    Judging from the hard start kits, manual reset high pressure switches and over sized condenser coils (especialy the unit on the right), they must be 13 SEER or higher. How recently were they installed?
