    side shot condenser fans

    Here's a couple of pics from a job we were called to do some clean up work on. The owner is a diy-er and had these special shrouds made to mount the fans for these condensers on the sides of the units. I guess this was the only way he could see to mount them high up in a car port. He just wanted us to run the linesets and ductwork for T&M. Tell me what you think? Looks like they won't last long reconfigured like that.

    Dude. It wasn't unti I saw the second picture that I realized these were Carrier (Bryant) with the fans relocated to the large side access panel by fabricating some metal panels.

    I at that point said WOW out loud to myself!
    Then scrolled down and saw "WOW" spelled out nice and big from you! LOL!
    You took the words out of my mouth!


    Assuming the top is blanked off where the fan WAS. These will be a PITA to ever service now! Holy fackin' sheep sh!t!

    I think they will run hot and suffer a miserable death!
    Look how close they are to each other. Damn! Looks like he had room to provide at least put 30+ inches in between each unit.

    Tell that customer that since he's evolved his new units with retard engineering, to go ahead and reverse the airflow so the fans push the air in instead of out. That way they will be as retarded as them old side fan mounted Carrier package units they made in the mid to late 90's!

    At a glance I thought they were the ancient 567A/B models with that big fan in back! Then I saw the beige paint!

    Yeah. The first picture just looked like a funky designed unit and I was trying to figure out WTF they were.

    Then on the second picture I read BRYANT and then the PURON logo and the QUANTUM plus logo from the fan shroud reminded me WTF unit these USED TO BE! LOL!

    They look easy to service, washing them ought to be like a day at the water park Hopefully they come with the famous tail light warranty.

    Wonder what the head pressure is going to be when run later this summer.

    PURON

    I bet they will push 450#'s. I wonder if they are HP's? The high pressure switch sould open around 500#.

    I bet when they start to fail and with a no warranty, due to a reconfig. This dumb a$$ will be kicking himself in his own a$$!!!!

    If he is as dumb as I think he is, he will go ahead and cut the HP switch out and let this conglommeration die quickly.

    Folks this would be a new generation of the Dick family. Cheers!

    Service is going to be a nightmare. Thats alot of screws to take out to get at the compressor or the electrical.
    Buy American! The job you save may be your own.
