Nice Unit But Louder than Previous Unit
Posted:6/6/14
Pros: it works
Cons: more cheaply made than previous model
" This replaced a Soleus 12K unit we bought 9 years ago. The compressor failed, but during those 9 years the unit performed well and was quiet (referring to the air handler).
This new unit, for some reason is bigger than the one it replaces, which causes a cosmetic issue such that it is no longer centered on the wall between the 2 windows. The original hole (necessary for the routing of the liquid refrigerant lines) created for the 1st unit could not be moved, so I had to install it there, but the overall air handler is longer, so it is no longer centered.
Additionally, while the unit operates well I have noticed the air handler is not as quiet as the 1st unit we had, which is disturbing.
During installation, I noticed Soleus cut corners on the quality of the unit. The original unit seemed to be built better, the new one is made more cheaply, even the backing plate/mount for the air handler is quite flimsy compared to the old one. Lastly, the outside compressor cover that houses the electrical only has one screw holding it whereas the original cover had three screws. The routing of the electrical conduit sheaths torque the cover to one side because of this. Had they put 3 screws in the cover, this would not have been an issue. It is sad to note that the Chinese units are getting more expensive, but at the expense of cheaper quality manufacturing.
I can only hope I get the same length of service I got out of the last one... "

" The unit arrived on time and in good shape. The install took just a couple of hours. I did hire an A.C. guy in to check out the install and to make sure it was charged O.K. "
