    I think that the "indoor unit" is to close to the wall. It will restrict the air flow though the unit.
    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???

    I don’t think they swapped them yet for cooling season. It’s still in heat pump mode.

    No wonder we are having a global cooling off change.

    This is obviously plumbed for heating for someone who couldn't afford the heat pump model.

    Thanks for my daily chuckle, now I can go pour a beer!
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    The thermostat actually works just fine. It's the install that's wrong. The stat is supposed to be mounted outdoors in this equipment configuration.

    LOL. Let’s see...I don’t see a whip and disconnect. You have to go outside to change the temp control or mode. Condensate drain isn’t properly accounted for in the photo...perhaps drinking water? Only saving grace is if it is a heat pump. What a crack up.
