new central AC installation


I have a question on a new central AC installation. presently I have a ductless system that failed after 5 headache years, question I have is where the present condenser for the ductless system is outside, it is the sunny side of the house all the time, I can remove that condenser and install the new unit there or should I install the condenser on the side of the house where there not much sun. any difference where I put it, any opinions on a heat pump, I live in the NEPA area.
thanks Chet

acbysean had written this in response to http://www.thestuccocompany.com/hvac/new-central-AC-installation-40545-.htm : The sun really isnt going to affect the condensing unit much, just paint fading on it, and the less freon lines you have the better. So I would leave it where it is cause its less headache and fine where it is. Chet wrote:

90% of my customer base has heat pumps or hybrid systems. they work great here in south Mississippi, especially when the system is properly sized and installed. I installed another heat pump system Monday and Tuesday, and will finish up installing another hybrid system tomorrow. Have another heat pump system to install next week too. Funny thing is nobody else in the area is installing any new systems... and I am one of the most expensive in the area.

Intuition and common sense says that the condensing unit should be in the shade. That said, someone posted a link to this list. A study had been made where they set up two identical houses, and put one on the sun side, other on the shade side. They found not much difference in performace, or utility usage.
If it's not much difference in labor, etc, I'd put the outdoor unit in the shade. If nothing else, the repair guy who services it will appreciate it.

Submerge it in the pool? That will keep it nice and cool.
