    Barn/Shop unit. Heat only.











    Simple unit, 80kbtu. Fit in the space the customer wanted me to use. Very particular customer. Satisfied in the end. Future plans to finish the ceiling.

    I did go back and put registers on the supply fitting.

    Nice, clean and good looking sheet metal. Nice job!

    One question though, you don't have a fused disconnect and just have a disconnect. Is that common in your area? In my limited experience I've never seen one without a fuse(in Michigan)

    You're talking about an ssu.. Those are for old homes with 30amp circuits. Basically fuse down the appliance. Unit had a 15 amp breaker. No need for a fuse. I'll replace a handful of those stupid things every year.

    Beautiful work jimmyed as always.

    That Pentagon fitting on the end of the supply is ingenious. If you haven't trademarked it, I am going to start using it on small commercial warehouse installs.

    I sincerely hope that near-the-ceiling duct is the air return.

    In a shop I always put the discharge at the floor level.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    And I do the opposite! Tried leaving the return up high, but that didn't work. Just warmed up the air up top and never got any of the cold air off the floor. We experimented on the unit in our shop, worked much better with return down low...

    Gorgeous looking. I hope the shop owner will keep it as clean as it looks now over the time. Thanks for the pics.
