Identifying if a crane is needed for an HVAC replacement and installation is simple. There are three common HVAC installation jobs that require a crane:

Commercial HVAC Installation

In almost every case a commercial HVAC unit weighs over 120 pounds and needs to be lifted over 20 feet. Buildings that commonly have these units are duplexes, triplexes, offices, malls, warehouses etc. 

Residential HVAC Installation

You will need a crane if the residence or residential unit has a roof mounted HVAC.

HVAC Installation in Compact Spaces

When an HVAC unit is in a hard to reach area that is tight or compact, a crane may be required for removal and placement of the new one. Homes that don’t have easy access to the units due to small areas, or if the unit was placed in a hard angle it usually requires crane assistance.
