    seems like

    almost all rheem/rudd units look like that and so hard to clean the other three sides,, when they get full of leaves it sucks to take them all apart to just to clean the coils.

    I am a rheem guy but that is the only thing I dont like about them. I wish they would make them removable like on the resi 3.5-5 ton package cabinet

    I guess it is a doulbe edged sword thing, it is nice that they are protected but hard to clean when you have to.

    thanks for listening

    I dont think they are connected anymore, He probably just threw them in there after he cut them off the lines. looks like a replacement jobbie.

    Just like old cars in Farmers barns... collectors will trip over themselves to get ahold of those old driers they find in old condensing units one day... won't they?

    Change-out

    This was the old unit that went with the Closet Job last winter. Never hooked it up after furnace was replaced. Saved them 3-4 months warrenty by waiting till spring to install new one. The liquid drier on old AC unit was a biflow Sporlan. Line set was replaced too. Old unit was 3 ton, new is 2.5 12seer.

    I worked on a Rheem like that last night. Taking the cover off wasn't very hard, but putting it back on without kneeling in mud and coil cleaner sucked.

    What do YOU use for cleaning coils? I use Cagon Calclean... it's potent... kills surrounding grass and prized tulips though on Residential splits.

    Coil Cleaner

    Renewz - Cut it for what your needs are. Need to rinse well, high alkaline.

    Yep, It’s not prejudice. Renewz eats lips, hips and fingertips!
