    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!

    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.

    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!

    Not only is the hackery bad, look at how they're mounted! Is it me or does it look like they're hanging off the 2x4 beams above? Those aren't going to last long with ~1,500 lbs of hacked ACs vibrating away.

    I do have to say though, the metal guy did do a nice job on the new shrouds. Guess every cloud has a silver lining

    I give him props for effort. While ass backwards and who knows there is no info posted on how they actually ran. I would never think of doing such thing so in his mind he is a genius. Keep us posted on how long they last and how they run if you go back there I sure the heck wouldn't.
