We had a new HVAC installed this spring and, while the old AC unit had been in the back yard, we decided to put the new one on the roof. The amount of noise and hot air given off by the AC condenser made it pretty unpleasant to have in our small back yard. I love that it’s now on the roof, out of sight and out of hearing range. However, moving it to the roof will cost a heck of a lot more than moving it elsewhere in your yard because you’ll likely need to use a crane and you’ll need to run the copper coolant line and electrical from the roof to your basement behind existing walls. As Marty mentioned, and HVAC company could do this for you. Good luck.
