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.
