    Mitsubishi 3.5 ton Condenser

    I installed this system in Seattle last week for a friend. They got a 3/4 wall unit upstairs and a 2 ton air handler downstairs. The system was VERY quiet. I has to be set up differently than a regular air handler because it uses different controls. After I got it up and working I found paint for the line hide and made it look like it had always been there.

    I have painted the line hide before and really gives that finished look.

    I also painted the white line set so it all just disappeared.

    have a pic of the indoor air handler?
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    I keep telling everyone I know. Those wall brackets are the prettiest and most solid way to mount those things. Looks awesome.

    I use wall brackets on every mini I can. Keeps the condenser off the ground and out of harms way as well as looking good.

    I even wall mound conventional condensers if I have a brick or concrete wall.

    I also like using a surge protected disconnect. I use Mars. Probably not the best but better than nothing.

    What did you do for controls? Would love to see a photo of the air handler install as well...

    Now wait a minute... I see a 110 outlet coming out of what is most likely a 220 disconnect. What is going on there?

    My point is, how is is getting 110 from the 220 disconnect?

    Is he using the ground wire as the neutral?

    Either they ran a separate circuit or a single neutral in a perfect world.

    Looks good but be careful pointing the discharge towards a walkway. They will make walkways into a sheet of ice during winter months. Which explains why sometimes you see them facing the wall (backwards looking) by municipal buildings with sidewalks by the unit.
