member's extreme rebuild of the original AC unit

There is a sticky about this same subject here that is an interesting read. Member Jason Pratt completely rebuilt his 40-year-old Armstrong, and even upped it's output significantly while adding the heatpump feature!

If all the work he did would have reduced the noise the Armstrong makes, it would have been tempting to consider doing, but apparently such is not the case.

If it's to be, it's up to me.
