I just recently completed installation of a Fedders split system. This is working great for me. No worries from the homeowners assoc about the unit sticking out through the wall. We ran a protective shroud along the wall to the condenser, which is located behind our wooden privacy fence…about 35 feet of refrigerant line. My son works for a hvac company. I installed the unit and ran the lineset, he made the hook up and got it running.

I have a one car garage…under 350 sq ft. I bought the 12K heat pump model from Delivery took three days. :-) We made up our own line set from 1/4 and 3/8 inch copper tubing and ran power from the condenser to the inside unit. That is concealed inside the shroud.

I also insulated the ceiling with blown insulation to R38. The overhead door was replaced several years ago with an energy eff door. The outside wall is also insulated. we had our siding replaced 2 years ago and I had the contractor insulate the wall while he had the siding off. Good move on my part for sure.

The unit maintains a constant 77 deg. F when operated n Auto. I have the timer set on my remote to turn the system on at noon. Being retired, I normally sleep late most days. :-)
