    pics are small and hard to see...........


    no overflow drain tied in.
    doors will be a joy to get off the way the units hung.
    any overflow switch in the pan?

    Sorry about picture size, used image shack and dont
    know what happened.

    1) I have safty pan with switch so don't need
    secondary drain.
    2) Unit is more than three in. away from rod and
    no problem servicing, I installed TXV with it in that
    position. NO PROBLEM

    #1 still a good idea to at least pipe secondary drain down to pan instead of letting it run through unit...


    #2 a txv is one thing, how about getting the blower out?


    don't get me wrong, it's a nice lookin install. just throwin out some ideas to make life easier down the road for servicing the unit.

    Thank You for your post.

    Trust me, servicing this unit will be No Problem.

    Secondary drain to pan would allow ambient air from
    attic, a little thing but I dont want it.

    Line set covers are product called "slim duct".
    made of PVC, a little more $ than aluminium down
    spouts but work much better.

    looks good

    That job looks awsome. Heres an idea though, when ever I do horizontal installs whether in a crawlspace or attic I just use the pump ups like you would use for heat pumps to support the air handler. I know you would have had to put down a good size piece of plywood in the attic to give yourself a solid level base though. The only reason I mention it is because it's just so much easier than hanging them and it doesn't get in your way for service like the rods. I've even built boxes out of tin to whatever height I want to set them on to get the unit on the same level as the ductwork. Your work looks super though.
    Remember, some poor fool has to work on what you install someday, and it might even be you.

    Great looking install. What type of pipes are you using to support the air handler underneath. Great insulation job too.
    Whoa Maynard - that's not how it works.

    Nice looking install....saving pictures for future reference.

    How did you attach the all thread to the rafters?
    I like the pipe hangers and see how the bottom is attached but not the top.

    Thanks
