Relocating a noisy AC Condenser
Hi all. I did a search and came up empty on this. Hope its not redundant. I have an old noisy dinosaur AC unit. The condenser is very loud and I would like to relocate it to the side of my house. I have a convienient crawl space off my basement with a straight shot to the side foundation where I could run conduit and copper freon lines. I was going to have a serviceman come to remove the current freon charge, then cut the lines and move everything myself, then have them come back later, and recharge the system. My questions are: 1.) Is this as simple as I have laid out here? and 2.) Should I use flare, compression, or solder joint when reconnecting my copper freon lines? Thanks in advance for any advice.
