Now in a more serious tone those hurricanes hit us really bad.

Sorry! I just realized where you are. Geez! I hope things get back to normal soon.

There are a few US installs nearing completion. Most of the first batch went to shops though, who don't tend to post on here.

Jonny maybe you could ask them to post, or ask the owners to give their feedback on the system?

At very least a quote or something, as you're a new vendor trying to get a system out there in the marketplace...pretty common as I'm sure you know

Jason,

I have completed work on repairing a blown head gasket on my truck, so I intend to focus on completing my new a/c install this coming week. Once done, what sort of information are you looking for (aside from general feedback in regards to the install experience)? I have a temperature sensor so I can take cabin temp readings, but what else are you looking to get? I am in northern Virginia just outside DC, so temps have already dropped to the 70’s so I certainly not know as to how it handles hot weather.

Regards,
David

Do IG and YouTube lack climate control?

Super funny. As they say, comedy aint easy. :-)

Seriously though, I just thought it would be cool to document the install. I thought it might help people in the future.

I can't speak for him, but I'd be interested in feedback on the install, accuracy of instructions, quality/fit of the components, and how well the system works in the end.

I need to figure out AC by the spring (6 months from now) and I'd like to hear some reviews before ordering.

Jonny H,

I have a lot of experience with auto as well as residential air conditioning.

If you are looking for a person in the Philadelphia area to install these I'd be interested in talking.
