self contained update

So far everything is great, I posted pictures of the installation in the general forums, repair and restoration/interior/heaters and air conditioner on 12/27/2015 and it has had 2832 visits. The system works beautifully and no roof top unit to spoil the looks. Another problem is that the rooftop units blow out the cold air and suck in from the same place, whereas this system circulates the air. The resistance heat also works well and no worry about being gassed in your sleep
