Do I Need To Buy Extra Accessaries If I Buy A DIY? - Ask The Expert Episode 310

Today's question is from Marvin.

"Hey Dan. What else do I need to buy? A quick disconnect for electric? Line set cover? What else?"

This was asked on the MRCOOL DIY product listing. I'm assuming he's asking what else he needs to buy besides what comes with it.

At minimum you will need a disconnect box, electrical whip, and either a wall mounting bracket or base pad.

    My car shangri-la question is: For the Mr Cool diy, can a licensed plumber (or someone licensed to do AC work) swap out the diy pre-charged line set (comes max 25') for a non diy line set that needs to be charged?

    I ask because I bought a 3 head unit, and the contractor that installed it (and measured) mis-measured the distance for the 3rd head and now I've got an extra 12k head that is too far from the condenser.

    Ok bye!

    A contractor should be able to do that, but it may void the warranty, as it is not how it was originally intended to be installed.
