What kind of AC system is this?
My wife and I went to look at a home today down here in FL that we're very interested in, and I'm confused as to what type of AC system this place has. I swear I did four laps around the house and could not find the external unit. The air handler is in the corner of the garage. It is about twice as wide as handlers I have seen before, and it is totally devoid of markings or labels that were easily readable. The system definitely works, the thermostat inside was set on 75 and the vents were blowing cool enough air for mid summer on the coast. We scheduled a home inspection for next week, I'm just really curious as to what this system is. Clearly I'm not an AC expert because I have no idea what the hell I was looking at, I just thought having external units with the compressor and condenser were the standard thing. Thanks for reading.

Sounds like geothermal unit.

or the condenser may be on the roof?

There are also all-in-one systems that can be installed inside, adjacent to an exterior wall - but those are generally for high-rise apartments, and not single family. If I had to guess, I'd agree with turnermech - most likely a geotherm.
