    You must not realize that he is from Florida. That is what most of the homes have down there.

    Is there a code that requires it or do they do that so it is faster when they have to redo it after the hurricanes every year

    What are you talking about? You need to use proper grammar when typing. Is this how you actually talk?

    Yea wondering what he meant too...

    I actually had to go back to the job because the units are sweating profusely ....the nice wood platforms are already showing some mildew.

    They set one unit to 69 at night and combined with the 77% RH in the garage @ 74 dew point I recommended a small portable dehum blowing the air over the units. I see no other way to stop it without conditioning the garage air some with the dehum.

    I don't see what the complaint is. The evap went in fine it will come out fine. Could you please post some of your work so we can see your clearances. Also if it is installed correctly with a sealed return and regular filter changes it will never have to be removed for cleaning.

    The only real issue I have with the installation is the lack of service clearance for the outdoor unit on the right.
    It would have been extremely easy to install it so there was proper clearance...

    It is an equipment replacement in an existing structure, not new construction.
    There are a few things about both outdoor unit installations that don't meet the letter of the code, but other than one service clearance issue, it looks like they did the best they could with the space available.
    There just isn't enough space between the drier vent and the electric service to install 2 units in a fully code compliant manner.
    On changeouts, you sometimes have to just polish the turd.

    So you would have transitioned between the air handlers and the existing duct board with metal?
    What would be gained from it?
    How would it be more "professional"?
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I actually stopped my dad and made him rework the pad .....yes he had them even closer. As with most pics there is actually more room than it appears.

    Even change outs have to meet code

    Did not know it was a change out and I would have replaced the duct bored with metal

    Change outs still have meet code we have horrible code inspectors here so people get away with doing installs and change out in correctly all the time when you do change outs that's something contractors need to consider when biding a change out sometimes they don't allow them selves enough to correct the problems or they don't care around here they don't care about anything but the all mighty dollar
