    I am curious, can you guys tell me how you all change residential package units?
    Do you hire a crane to remove and install new unit or do you rough it out by rolling it off a truck and monkeying the thing around the side of the house.

    I've seen it done both ways....depends on location.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    should be askin this question on the pro site so was not to have some DIY HO squash themselves.
    Everyone has a purpose in life..........even if it's to be a bad example.

    Seek first to understand, before seeking to be understood.

    Definitley use a crane.

    The bigger the better.

    Saves the back.
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    We usually locate the unit under the largest “shade” tree so when it needs working on, we have a nice and comfortable working environment. The owner is responsible for renting the crane to RELOCATE the house.
