    Yeah, I had seen a couple of them that said that the were designed that they could be coupled with (sharing thermostat, ducting, etc.) with AC.  For the price and performance, they're pretty impressive.  How many BTU's is yours?

i am all electric, furnace is 12kw, 40k BTU, my AC is 3T. 220v.
But the space and "principles" are the same Smiley
i prefer to burn diesel than search for propane during a power outage Smiley
The rest of my circuits are shared on a pass thru inverter. (except my 110v 20 gallon hot water heater)

my system was designed for use in high rise apartment buildings. installed new in 1990.
was adequate for George Strait.
see First Co Dallas TX.

It only leaks after a run.  there are a few other seeps, but I think if I find this one, it will make me happy.  It's a 10" spot on asphalt that stops dripping after a day.  Right under the starter motor.  Top of the engine, oddly, is completely dry.  Gasket sealer worked up there!  Keeps me busy, I guess.

Brain mine leaks a little too and back by the air  compressor. When it gets messy I just spray it with the Purple stuff and spray it with my pressure washer. i turn it down from 3500 to 1500 and blast away. Cleans it right up for a few months. Never enough for dripping on the ground other than my air box drains and they are only a little after a good run.

Many cans of brake cleen are being sacrificed to to mission of finding the leak...  Today, the though was my starter motor is leaking.  Starter motors don't have oil in them.  The search continues.  I actually think the air box covers might be spraying (turbo engine) and putting a mist out that gets over everything.

  surely your not thinking used 2 stroke oil...

8 gallons of diesel is $16.00, the potential damage is $16,000.00.

why would you consider this ?   

    Yes, any kind of used oil has dirt (non-combustion derived -- that's why they check for silica on oil analysis), soot (carbon from combustion), chemicals from combustion and other places (we always hope not trans. fluid or antifreeze coolant), water, etc.  Used oil ... sorta like drinking water from the sewage pipe, right?  Clifford has it right -- wanna see an engineer from a company that manufactures engines faint???

they have a 40,000 btu unit for a little less money but I think it is the same size ( w x h x d )

should fit in a bay with the duct work just under the floor
