I am trying to get some information on Intertherm unit on the inside of a Manufactured Home, With the new Hud requirements they are saying the out door unit must be installed by the manufactures...
Hi, since you live in a Manufactured home and not a R.V., I see no reason why you cannot go with what ever type of condensing unit you want to install on a slab outdoors. The installation instructions for the Intertherm unit for installing the outdoor unit should apply to any brand unit you want to use as long as the size of the indoor coil is the same capacity of the outdoor unit. For example, if the indoor unit is a 2 ton, 2.5 ton, 3 ton and so on, the outdoor unit would have to be the same is all. Same freon type, most are R-22, but they are using the new R-410a freon, so make sure of the freon type of the indoor coil is and get a unit of the same size and freon type. The installation instructions for the Intertherm should almost be the exact way to install any other condenser. Look for things like the distance from the outside wall, if it needs to be anchored, how far away the electrical disconnect box has to be from the unit, example 4' to 6'. Things like this you need to look for in the installation instructions is all. The new condenser unit holds enough freon for up to 25' of copper line set also. Try to stay with in that range to the indoor unit. If not, no big deal, they may need to add or remove a little freon is all. I hope this has been helpful to you on this. Trane, Carrier, Rheem, Ruud, Bryant, are all top of the line, better made then Tntertherm in my opinion. They should all be hud approved, I don't know where you are from, but here in Ca, they are.
I wish you the best, and please don't forget to rate me. I know you will be kind.
