One of my neighbors, as part of a backyard renovation/landscaping
project, will be moving their condenser unit from a northern exposure,
to eastern exposure. It is a 5 ton unit, and probably 2-3 years old(as
is the remainder of the full HVAC system).
This will involve new electrical service at the new site, relocate/repl-
ace the refrigerant line at the new site, (actually, I guess that's two
lines for relocation), prepare the site, and move the unit with one of
those pre-made anchor pads.
The standng estimate for this project is $2,400.00, which seems a
little steep to me. But, I really have no idea. I'm no technician, but I
wanted to get some ideas for this neighbor. Also, must the system
be discharged, moved, evacuated, and recharged? Or, is there a
way just to close the system for relocation? I also should mention
that a 2-3 day work window requirement was quoted.
