View Full Version : Affinity Air Handler
06-29-2009, 09:17 PM
I am having my houses a/c overhauled and the the tech is installing the system in a storage room on the second floor.In order to make the transition from the handler(vertical) to the trunk(horizontal),he is hand-building a box to join the two.
Does the air handler, have to be set in any one proper position?Can it be rotated untill the outlet is on the top or bottom horizontally?To make the union much simpler and cleaner looking?
So,from left to right it's assembled in this order-the fan,the coil, silenced return box(off the shelf) and finally the electro-static air cleaner(with more to come).
Looks kinda unpolished and Rube-ish.I was under the impression that all of the Affinity series components were modular and fit well together.
Over all the house is getting 6 tons and 2 zones of 18 SEER York Affinty HP with electrostatic filtration.
Overall everything looks good so far but how this stuff is assembling is making me kinda nervous.
I'll try and get some pics up soon.

I'd think they would use a horizontial A/H or one that can be converted to horizontial.
Post the pics,and model numbers involved.

If you don't feel welcome at first ,check back for more serious replies from Pro's that are more interested in assisting ,than attempting to be a comedianThat's what I like to hear.
I will as soon as I get out of work about 6 today.

Coil is installed backwards.

Why did they face the filter away from the best access area....stupid~
Also the takeoff of the airhandler plenum is highly restrictive..
Looks like standard residential new construction in my area:confused:

I think the directional arrows inside the filter say face up and left or right..IIRC...not happy about how it looks so far.Nor happy about the scratch built box from the outlet.He assures me it's a tight seal.I thought that pre-fabed outlet ducts to join the two together were used for a cleanr look and airflow.
But by watching the work so far I might just get him to finish the upstairs and then call someone out to finish the rest and check over his work after the baby is born(if it ever gets finished).
As far as the coil goes ,I have no idea how one is supposed to look.Or which way it assembles or orientates.Tried o find pics or posts of this set-up or similar...but to no luck.
Most of the trunk and flex in the attic looks good.I haven't had the chance to check it all but it looks easy to do and for the most part ,wide open.
But how the handler is done makes me nervous.

Though it is different from any other horizontal install I've seen, I stand corrected after looking at the submittal from York. It is indeed the approved "horizontal left" configuration (pg. 4 - http://yorkupg.com/PDFFiles/331473-YSD-E-0708.pdf).
