    Rooftop Unit On The Ground

    Kind of misleading I know, but it is on the ground. I drove by this the other day and noticed the meticulous amount of duct outside needed to get this attached to the building. The building does have a flat roof. I guess the owners could not afford to get it up there with a crane.



    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    I do believe that is an over/under conversion curb ordered directly with that unit from Carrier. Look at the old power exhaust next to the building. Definitely not same age as the package unit.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    A crane is only $95 an hour.... If they can afford that unit they can afford a crane. Very odd placement, interesting!

    they do make side discharge in that size...the duct conversion cost more than a crane and roof curb...but the roof being flat may have not been structurally strong enough to support the unit.
