    I have free HPCU from jobs all the time. same with AHU.

    Not all applications are restaurant and health code. Hunting camp, beer storage, morgue
    There's a product called CoolBot. Turns a window shaker into a W I Cooler system It does work but eventually kills the window shaker. Usually after the box is filled. See it with hunters out here 2 or 3 times a season. I collect my service call and tell them when they want a reliable system let me know.

    Your set up will probably work but is labor intensive. reliability is another issue.

    That's why I wouldn't do it. Someone could get sue happy, call in another for a second opinion, and that second opinion would say the install is completely the wrong application.

    You know I'm with you on this, right? <g>

    Although I do disagree in the details you want to apply.

    I'll help you do what in you want in any way I can but I think you will get further ahead faster by putting the condensing unit outside the box and the air handler in the box. Or the air handler on top with two big 90º ells down into the box.

    Do you have a garage at your house?

    Hey, Tesla didn't do a study of drive time listenership to determine how powerful the first transmitter needed to be. I just need someone with a spare cooler box- maybe a florist?

    Florist shop. Room temp is 72 degrees. Box temp is 40 degrees where outside hpcu is installed in the walk-in box. Plenty of room and no nsf concerns.

    Parameters of a residential hp.. outside ambient is 40 and inside room temperature is 72 degrees. Same temperatures.

    Heat from compressor is removed through the freon to the condenser coil. Hermetic compressors are refrigerant cooled.
