Default AC compressor mounted on bracket?

Ryan Homes is building a bunch of homes nearby. The basement
walls are poured concrete and the AC compressor is supported
by a hefty bracket bolted to the wall - a foot or so above grade.

Why are they doing this instead of putting the compressor on
the ground? It seems to me that a lot of noise gets coupled
into the house when it's done this way, plus cost of bracket
and mounting labor. What am I missing?

Hi,
I see quite a few installed like that in my neighborhood specially where
yard is sloping. Off the ground, less chance of bugs getting inside?
I am sure they are mounted with rubber bumpers to minimize noise.
Ours is on the ground level with a soft concrete pad came with the unit.
It is low noise unit, hardly any noise or vibration.

Hi,
It is sort of concrete with some kind of shredded fiber mixed in.
Made to dampen vibration/noise. Our unit is Carrier and
unit came with it. I am not sure whether it was supplied by Carrier
or the installer.
