    New System Upgrades

    So I’ve been taking a few airflow classes from NCI lately and been practicing my fabricating. Finally got a chance to throw it all together. Very happy with the results as are the homeowners.

    very nice work the only critic is to put a cap on the tee for the condensate line for the A coil. since it is before the trap you will lose airflow from there, and is there enough room to the wall to pull the blower out?

    Yes 30” from wall. Good point with the tee I’ll put a removable one in when I finish the AC. It’s for cleaning the drains and trap for maintenance.

    Nice work. Raising the furnace up so the full 20x25 of the media filter gets airflow is smart. Many don't do that. Great metal.

    Thanks. Agreed most don’t. 80k 3T and above get a 6” box and 20” filter. New equipment needs all the help it can get on old ductwork.

    Holy Moley! You are now a certified artist as well as a top notch HVAC installer.

    Please come up on stage and get your certificate.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    I’ve installed 3 of them. I have one in my home as well. I really like it, I feel it does a great job with controlling odors, like animals and cooking. I smelled what some people say is the ozone for about the first month now I don’t smell it anymore. Probably just got used to it. My wife says she still smells it. The three I’ve put in I haven’t had any complaints but none have called to tell me it’s the greatest lol.

    I put the GPS in a smokers home and when I went back 6 months later I couldn’t tell a difference. Told them to leave the fan on also.

    Some furnaces are fussy about back pressure in drain piping (Carrier), so you'd have to run a separate drain line if you blocked off the tee. I don't even use a trap on positive pressure coils open tee only ( with a drain trap you're just begging for it to plug up and drown the furnace).

    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.
