replacing home generator creating other issues
The 14 year old power guard generator was installed with the exhaust valve blowing on the ac condenser units. It fried itself last Monday
Presently I have sitting in a linear pattern the generator closest to the home followed by two ac condenser units. We have already deduced that new cement will need to be poured, the ac units will need to be moved along with piping and a new home generator will need to be placed the furthest from the home .
My concern is that in moving the ac 10 seer rated units they will fail.
I have already called the HVAC service and asked for a quote on new higher rated seer air systems.
Would you bite the bullet and replace all three items or see if when they move the air conditioners that they keep in mind the units are old and will fail?
I have been warned that I will also need to replace the handlers.
The husband wants a 14 kw kohler whereas I prefer an 8.5kw and use the difference towards the air conditioners.
I am lucky to have only lost power for five days. Those in Staten Island, NJ and LOong Island are looking at weeks with no power.
