Why does the unit have to be inside?
I had my HVAC unit, an electric heat pump/AC unit, serviced last week. It's 12 years old and they told me that it might make it through this summer here in S.GA. The Tech recommended a GeoThermal unit even though they do not sell/install them, then recommended a local company that does. I had them come out to talk and things sounded fair until he told me that the unit cannot be outside, it must be inside. After I asked him to explain this he stated "I don't really know why, that's the way we do it and the manufacturer recommends it". Not a good answer to me when selling something that cost $12K for a turnkey job. Is this a fact or BS he's shooting me? Why would the unit have to be "inside" and out of the weather? Where would one put it? David
