Write it up as…Improper clearances of exterior condenser. Recommend removing wood cover while in operation.
This Condenser unit can not be blocked, period. Unless of course it’s not being used.
When this unit is discharging air, and there is a cover above it, the hot air attempts to blow up, but hits the cover, and is recirculated back into the unit. This causes the head pressure to increase, and the capacity (of the unit) to be reduced. Also, this hot condenser air becomes trapped around the unit, recycling it into the condenser coil and the “fresh” air intake. As the unit runs, it continues to increase the temperature of the air across the outdoor coil, decreasing efficiency and increasing operational costs.
This continued use (in this manner) will ruin the unit.
