New Old Stock?


Hello,

Searching around for HVAC equipment, I see occasional deals on stuff that's brand new in the box, but not current models. Stuff dating from 2003, 2005 etc.

Are such things a good bet? Or would one reasonably expect issues - like stuck compressor motors or corroded/tarnished contactor points?

All new Condensing units are pretty much sealed tight from air and moisture, if it's a good price go for it but there are somethings to consider.
No Warranty

Is it sealed completely in the original shipping carton

Very low SEER you will pay out the nose to operate it your electric bill will floor you.

Who's going to install it a pro or DIY.

Is the equipment matching EX. outdoor unit with the indoor unit.

I'm sure there's much more wait till you see what else is said.

PS: Do you know the seller and is he reputable.???????

*** As far as I know.

Very low SEER
*** 13 SEER, same as the current R22 models.

*** DIY. Check my previous threads in this forum. I have passed the EPA test and am certified "Universal". I have been studying and accumulating equipment. I know how to braze.

Is the equipment matching EX. outdoor unit with the indoor unit.

*** Long story. The existing condenser was stolen. It was a Payne 2.5 ton. Web research leads me to believe that it would not be a good move to invest in Payne equipment. I understand that this equipment mixes and matches fairly well - the condenser has to match the tonnage of the evaporator. The furnace blower has to deliver the appropriate CFM for the evaporator. If the evaporator has a TXV ( this one does ) then you don't have to futz around with matching the metering orifice.

I haven't really had much trouble with any Panye unit. Hate the name, only because because of the name.


7 year old new condenser?

*** When you put it that way.... I guess I'll pony up for a new one. Too much work involved.
