Just roof over it...
This is an old commercial building that got a raised metal roof overlay. There is about 30 inches of clearance below the beams at the center of the span.
This is the way up.....
That's about an 18" gap to crawl through up there....
This is the first discovery. An air handler that replaced the old rooftop heat pump. Everyone knows you can't roof over a packaged heat pump.... That's 16" flex doing it's best imitation of 8" flex....
Dead soldier forever entombed in the tiny attic.
Gawd it's hot up here...what the hell is that noise? It... it ...can't be....
YEP! That's a 2.5 ton carrier package unit... IN THE ATTIC! I thought the drain pan was a nice touch.
Been a while..

Wow, not much air flow in the flex!
I bet the head preassure was high on the Carrier.

I guess you would have to cut a hole in roof to change that package unit.

Lol, looks like a good amount of space in the attic to just cut that RTU up and remove it piece by piece

We have a customer with a old ( and I mean old- the word carrier is spelled out above the condenser coil) carrier a/c only rtu located inside the building. They put a big hole in a inside wall for air intake (it is in a closet filled with junk so you can't really see it) and have a duct around the top of the unit where the condenser fan is located that goes through the roof. Yes, it sucks the conditioned air through the condenser coil and out the building. I can't wait to go back there. Trust me, you will see pictures.
