    I've seen this b4, it can work for a while till the coil begins to build ice . Flip the coil around simple fix . If it was a Pane coil it would work just fine but it would not fit right.

    How long was the system in place before they noticed a problem?

    Then ONLY half of the coil would be doing the cooling.

    just a thought

    necessarily. I saw a job with a slant coil where they cut the return on the wrong side of the slant. No air went through that coil either.

    some manufactures actually do allow for side resturn on their a coil units. It is not common and when it is permitted there are usually strict stipulations as to how much air may be introduced through a side return. This looks incorrect and if ice is building up, then it obviously is. Saddly this happens more often than you might want to think...

    they do allow side return, it would have to be under the "A" coil so air enters through the bottom of it, not the side. As was mentioned, the Trane Hyperion would fit the bill.
