orange cover in ac

I admit i have only looked in a few hundred AC condenser units, as most homes here have evaporative cooling, but I have never seen this before. It looks like an insulative blanket?

It is fine. I believe it is to reduce compressor noise. See it often on Trane

Yes a lot of the higher end units have them

They have dual purposes 1. sound eliminator 2. The compressor motor winding’s are cooled from within by the temp of the return refrigerant thus the blanket serves to prevent heat from the ambient being absorbed into the compressor.

That is what I was thinking when I see them.

Sure ya wazzz:twisted:

Izz Wazz

Why don’t ya just go fishing:twisted:

I would but, the weather is just pure sh*t.
Here is the headlines…
Tuesday forecast: Afternoon storms, hail, winds up to 70 mph

High end units? That is why I have not seen them lol.
