A/C condensor question

5 posts in this topic

Like everyone elses conderser mine is locater right outside the house. When I replace it in a few years would it be possible to move it about 75 feet away from the house and put the condensate lines underground in conduit? I'd really like to use the space where it is sitting but don't know if there would be any kind of thermal loss by moving it that far. I'm not worried about moving the electrical as I think I've got that covered.

Sure move it.

You will need to go up a size in lines. 7/8-3/8 should work.

If it up hill to the condenser you will need a trap in the suction line.

You may lose a slight amount of efficiency because the unit has to work a little harder thats all.

Lots to consider with this this.

Will the plenum take a coil, up flow, down flow horizontal???

A/C copper lines size? How long?

Pad for A/C ??

Drain, or do you need a pump?

Electric, What do you have in the garage? Need 208/230 volt 30 amp at a minimum

Disconnect for out door unit?

Heat/cool Thermostat?

Low voltage wire?

As I said lots to consider. Im a fussy (sob) ALL furnaces that are in a garage

MUST me sealed combustion................ In my book.

OK Here a guess $3000 dollars

You can buy a window shaker for 5-7hundred

Hope this helps.

    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
