I read the tech specs and they indicated a max temp of 160F exiting the unit was acceptable so I guess you are right! Airflow seems it be adequate.
Also forgot to add I can't keep my hand on the supply duct without it hurting from the heat right above the unit. Is it just because this is more efficient?
Ya it had smooth head screws...a beast to say the least.
Edit: Sorry 'bout the $$$ I keep forgetting.

I agree with Cynicx as our last apt was like his condo exp.
