    Wanted it to line up with condensate pitch...
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.

    Not making excuses for the install, but if the roof is pitched, it is a pita cuz you cannot buy factory curbs with the specific pitch. Have to be made in the shop and welded. We have to make 4 in a couple of weeks for 10 ton units.
    If you really know how it works, you have an execellent chance of fixin' er up!

    Tomorrow is promised to no one...

    the instructions state: pitch toward drain........................

    and your problem with it is
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.
