Sometimes things just are not as simple as they should be. When we replace an air conditioner, placing the new unit on the outside of the home usually does not present a problem. But this one left us really scratching our heads.
This house was built so close to the lake that there was literally no room to bring the condenser around to the back of the house. The condenser was too wide to fit through the finished doorways, so bringing it through the home was not an option either. What to do?
That’s when our Installation Manager, Dan Benes, came up with a plan that was a bit outside the box: we could float the condenser around to the back of the house.
It took a bit of planning to make sure the condenser didn’t become the anchor of the boat! It was mounted securely to wood and to the boat so the equipment would be kept level.
The homeowners were so appreciative of our solution since it was much less expensive than lifting the unit by crane would have been.
