Heat pump - mounting to concrete pad
Asked Aug 23, 2010, 06:18 PM
My heat pump compressor unit is currently attached to the exterior foundation of my house by way of two brackets. I want to relocate the compressor to a purpose built pad a bit further from the house. I am planning on attaching the compressor to the pad using a neoprene isolator at each corner. I will have a qualified hvac specialist disconnect and reconnect the unit.
My question is - what is the best way to fix the compressor to the pad? Using neoprene isolators or just bolt the compressor feet directly to the pad. The compressor is a Fidgidaire FT3BC-48, and there will not be any stand between the compressor and the concrete pad.
Thanks for your advise!
