    Junk on the roof

    You know me, if I can see something worth shooting, I will. Here's a few laughs, taken from the 6th floor of our new downtown library.

    There's a hodge podge down the street! 5 old Willies and some newer stuff.


    I bet the old Williamsons will outlast that Payne!


    Nice woodworking! 2 junker GEs, a junker Payne and a Bryant Puron unit.


    Building across the street, looks abandoned. Has 4 of these relic Yorkies from the early 70s!


    Apartment building (empty) next door. The little rounds from the 80s were the originals from the most recent rehab. The rest were just thrown up there as stuff died. Typical. Can't tear it down, on the National Register of Historic Places. Someone ought to fix it up again.


    More apartment roof quality. The originals were the trash can Snyders. The 13 SEER Goodman sure stands out among the low SEER units! Suppose they changed the evap?


    Commercial junk several blocks away. Anybody know what brand it is?


    What's that red thing? Old Yorkie? Lennox?

    Amazing part is, from being an apartment building owner myself, most likely those old flat roofs of those old apartment buildings are not rated to handle all that equipment, especially located so close together.

    HEY!

    One of my condensers is just like those GE's!

    It doesn't have any rust, though.

    Those things were tanks. My old Uncle lived in a condo in IA. Got there in a heavy snowstorm about bedtime. Just before we turned in, he turned the heat down from 72 to 68 - by turning on the cooling!!! Guess he'd been doing it that way for a long time. That little sucker was purring away with snow blowing like crazy! The GE outlasted the Uncle!
