    Our first FL house had a ducted Bard unit installed in garage ceiling. It was a split with evap on oil furnace. The cond sucked air in from eave vents and blew it out of a duct in the gable. We used to stand under it after swimming to dry off! That Bard ran 26 years with zero problems.

    Years ago, I saw a package unit mounted in an attic. It had the condenser air exhausting out the gable, but it was pulling condenser air from the attic. They had two 6" flex runs from the evap side running to the condenser coil to keep it from tripping on high head.
    I told em I wouldn't work on it. They didn't sound surprised, and even said I was the third guy to refuse to work on it. But they still wanted it "repaired" instead of "fixed".

    Shocking, should get the state board involved and take action on unlicensed installers or pull some licenses.

    [QUOTE=duct_dude;300532]Fedders use to make a package unit that went in the attic.

    Those old Fedders were called Adapta-matics.
    Here in South Florida there was a contractor that did this in an entire development. Hundreds of package units in the attics.
    Real pain to service.

    Nice.

    Had one customer's self styled engineer husband build a roof over the pkg unit but it was a large attic area. Argued with me about it, just said screw it. House is a water front mansion. Have to listen to every new tech that sees it.

    Have a large condo that has Freidrich thru wall pkg units in the center room of the condos and the outside coil is ducted to outside. One a the installing contractor's techs put a R/A grill on the intake duct. So much thought goes into doing something wrong.

    They told us at East Coast that this unit would replace an Insider, but it like to have killed us getting that in the attic.

    We actually had a rooftop unit that was mounted on the roof, Untill they decided to frame around it and make it part of the attic. The left a 24" hole and metal chase from the condener fan to the attic vent. I hated to work on it, BUT it was at a stripclub.
