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?

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

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
