Hi Gregory, 

Being a retired model, have you had luck servicing it in Toronto? I’m out in Victoria, BC, will check with Cramped Attic in Vancouver to see if they do. Looks like a nice starter package for an AC on a budget. I just want to make sure I could keep it maintained.

Hey Brian,

I have been very fortunate to have full service here in Toronto on the unit by a technician (saviour) at Panavision. He was the one that did the NPF battery upgrade for me this past year. Definitely have a chat with Cramped Attic about upkeep of the unit and then we can talk if you're still interested.
