    Don't open if you are scared of heights!!

    I posted this a while back and found the responses thouroughly enjoyable:

    http://hvac-talk.com/vbb/showthread....ghlight=office

    So when I got the chance to do an install of two minisplits on the 10th floor of a residential bldg, I made sure to take pictures.

    2 Milti zone Mitsubishi units. The scaffold guys lent a hand getting the old condensers down, and I made limited use of the scaffold to connect the new stuff. You will see a pair of ref pipes pocking out of the units, down to the window so we can take pressures, add gas, and so on. added a few screws to the near side of the unit to allow getting the thing on again without having to reach to the front.

    Before anybody yells OSHA!!! please note fall protection was worn, and tools had leashes, all precautions were taken.

    This is why I love this trade and why I love working in NYC - it's like a box of choc-o-lates... You never know what your gona get next.

    The issue isnt that you are up too high, but rather that the ground is too low.

    Like they say, its not the fall that hurts, just the sudden stop at the bottom.
