    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.

    That is an "Inverter", isn't it?

    Does that mean it will work upside down?

    Looking good.

    Drinking on the job?? I see a beer bottle and another one on the unit wrapped in those cooler.

    Was the window shutter already cut or you had to cut it for the linesets?

    What's the orange wire? Power?

    Also the grey tube? Drain?

    Looks like a bloody ripper. lol. If that Internal beam wasn't there and their primary room was the kitchen, and they got the indoor model with the left hand pipe. lol. It would be a good job.

    What do you expect from a commercial fridgie with only 2 installs under his belt.

    Next time it will be right and I won't go on second hand info. I'll do the bloody sizing and tell them where it goes. Remember the customer is allways right. If they told me to put it in the kitchen, then the indoor model would be sized a little different. They are asking too much of the unit.

    It would work much better in the lounge.

    Thats what happens when the home owner KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS AND DOESN'T ENLIST PROFESSIONAL ADVICE BEFORE THE PURCHACE.

    Where they are with all the shading, as long as it can take out enough humidity IT'LL BE ALL GOOD.

    If I didn't have the unit under that beam then in heating, the lounge, with all the floor to cieling windows, would do absolutely squat.

    You know what I mean eh.





    It was just a cashie as a favor for rowie No? There is no way the evap would be where it is if I was comishioned to size and install.


    They need at least the 8KW in that model or even the KX4.

    I spoke to Mitsibishi Heavy Industries about it and gave them a rough idea of the layout.


    The KX4 however is a little big for that application.


    Idealy they would heat/cool the main room and duct into the lounge from that.


    Yeah. This one wasn't something I'd do at home.



    You live and learn.

    not bad.....

    Fridge,
    I would have ran the line set behind the unit
    and covered it with something like a downspout. And
    anything hanging or flapping in the wind I would secure.
    Also ran the lines along the shutterto the left to maintain
    straightness.What about getting access behind the unit?
    The unit should have been a least a foot away from the wall.
