Thread: Defrost

  1. #1

    Question

    Sorry gents - the vb vs. html thing caused my delay - Had a customer that stated the previous tech told him this configuration is designed for defrost "run-off".

    Is that a drier vent next to it? And a disconnect closer to the front of the house not attached to anything? What's that box that's partially underground? Looks like a meter socket to me...

    Cool

    Believe it or not, that's actually a pellet stove vent (amazing what HO's do). The box you thought was a disc not attached - that's actually the local Verizon interface (telephone). Yeah, that's a meter socket.

    Nice brick under the one side, that will help level it out. Looks like it has been that way since new? Have they had to replace the compressor in it yet? Did you fix it or just leave it that way till it dies?
    If we didn't do this what would we do for fun?

    Any thoughts on bidding a fix on this unit? Move it closer to that rickety fence, maybe put it on Iron frame wall brackets.

    And repipe the unit... that's quite the reverse stretch on that first 90.
    Teach the apprentices right... and learn from their questions and ideas.

    Cool

    lonestarheir-

    In response to your question, left as is - unit was working sufficiently at the time, customer wanted to replace system and relocate OD unit to rear of the house..... "REFERRED TO SALES"
