    Question about air conditoners

    I am in school right now and my teacher said to ask a technician why is the gauges on the bottom of the unit and not on the top? If anyone could help me with the answer that would be great.

    Are you talking about the gauge ports where the hoses
    are attached?

    None of the units I work on have "guages." I have to attach them.

    ???

    I have seen a few units with installed gauges, and they are normally not at the bottom of the unit, but just at or below eye level. Ease of viewing.

    Transducers are one of the greatest things thats happend to HVAC that and a good BMS. There is nothing better than sitting down a a computer and figureing out whats wrong with a system.
