    During a heater certification I came across another plenum by the fine installers at Ghetto HVAC. It's air tight however so they deserve that at least. Takes longer to it the wrong way, Who needs the right tools anyway!

    It might count as modern art. It looked like painters caulk up close.

    I'd be more pissed about all of the crap that is around it.

    can't help but wonder, what that plenum does to the airflow.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    looks like the left side won't get air flow through the heat exchanger. Look closer to the drain ports and picture the coil and the panned off area.

    If its panned. Could just be bypassing 30-40% of air around coil.
