    Get rid of the EAC, use a media in the same cabinet, and start a budget for replacing the "Dependable 92".

    At 32 years, I would start getting quotes on a new properly sized system, and a media air cleaner.

    So you're designing a new zone system?
    You'll need to know CFM requirements, and static pressure when the system is using only 1 zone.
