anyone replaced an existing a/c unit?
is it really as simple as they say for example on this unit
just hookup electric and in/out ducts to existing ducts?
Almost NEVER as easy as it sounds.
The link goes to a remote mounted compressor, or split system. You would
need to sweat the freon lines, pull a vacuum and then open the valves.
Package units can be cooling on top or side or bottom. Return will be
opposite the supply.
If your changing types or manufactures odds are you will need a new elbow
to connect to the ductwork.
You do realize if you buy it on line you will almost never get any warranty
from the company that sold it to you. Manufactures are pretty pissy about
EPA and CFC certifications. If you do not have them forget about warranty.
Sorta like buying a Formula One car to drive on the street. When it breaks
who ya going to call?
Yeah, for a package unit like that. But you have to have your ducts set up
for one. If you are in a trailer and you are just swapping out a bad one,
it's not too difficult. But if you are talking about a split system where
you have to run new refrigerant lines, vacuum it out PROPERLY, install a
filter/drier, etc. Then you are talking about having a lot of tools and
equipment most people don't have and are pretty expensive to buy just to use
for one job.
