  • Publication number: 20190041090
    Abstract: A wall mount bracket for HVAC Equipment such as a heat pump, AC condensing unit, and preferably the exterior condenser unit of a mini split system. The system can advantageously be used in colder climates to prevent equipment from freezing and keep equipment above the level of the snow, etc. The wall mounts herein employ an offset to space the unit away from the wall of the structure to provide clearance on the rear of the unit. The offset also allows the units to be mounted above the top of the foundation wall without disrupting the exterior siding of the structure.
