    This is a loading dock where I've been working the last few days. Just imagine how hot it is here in the Summertime. Or changing a compressor 15' up in the air on a 7 1/2 ton condenser. In pics 4&5 the Carrier was blowing its discharge into the Lennox, thus the sheet metal diverter. We are moving the Carrier out onto the roof. Lots of fun working around all the pigeon poop. If one of em dumps a load on me I'm coming back with a Red Ryder BB gun to shoot their eye out!

    Talking

    Who in their right mind would install condensers indoors like that?

    I've worked on a lot of water cooled package units in hotels where they put them in the lobby 20 feet up in the ceiling tiles. Talk about a pain in the butt, one of them has a leak in the evaporator and it's on a side that's right up against the wall and needs to be pulled down with a scissor lift, fixed, and put back up.

    Why didn't they at leasts cut a hole in the roof to discharge the air from those condenser's...They are just cycling their own discharge air,can't be very effective cooling..How do you clean them with nitrogen or air wash...

    I wonder what the manufacture would warranty on an installation like those????????

    Most of the frieght type buildings,I am assuming that this is where these units are located,mount them on frames outside -up high so trucks and forks can't hit them...

    Thumbs up

    There's apartments up above them and trucks have already hit the unistrus holding several line sets. It's all in a day's work and I get paid by the hour.
