Air Conditioner Pads

If you plan on installing an outdoor air conditioning unit, you must also purchase an air conditioner pad. An air conditioner pad (or equipment pad) is a base on which an outdoor air conditioner sits on. It absorbs some of the noise and vibration that is produced by a unit and is built to withstand the elements. With an air conditioner pad, you don't have to worry about whether or not your air conditioner will sink into the ground! Usually made of plastic or concrete and steel, an air conditioner pad is designed to sturdily support the unit, transfer its weight evenly, and prevent it from moving around.
