In the 80's we had this problem and we anchored the units to the
concrete with anchors and bolts. (this may not work for you)
The units that use glycol are water source heat pumps. They require
plastic lines dug into the ground 4 to 6 feet depending on your freeze
zone. It's a pretty heavy investment. Do you have a source of
water like a pond or a well?
The other unit you can use is a cooling tower that is installed on the
ground with any kind of water line to the cooling unit that can be
inside the building.
Also the a/c unit with a cooling tower does not use much copper so it
could be outside also. Need to drain the water in the winter or use
Or, a product were we can put the condenser inside the building and
Can you locate the a/c units on the roof. I have not seen thieves go
there. Also I have seen metal stands 6 to 10 feet tall with a/c on
the top. This could be the least expensive choice
This is too funny for a couple of reasons. We put a huge blast freezer in
for this company in Cleveland, it was about 6 stories high. They fed the
dogs laced with sleeping pills, cut the fence, got on the roof with a truck
lift, cut all the copper out, 4" copper and left!!
Here's the funny part, and Mark will appreciate it. I did a search just now
to see if they have a website, and guess what I found. BTW, they are muslins
Seems the feds are going after them. We were there in the Ghetto part of
Cleveland when Al Gore visited and all the streets were locked down for
about 30 minutes as our nice shinny limo drove him around the poor areas to
