Saturday I went to inspect an install. A lawyer called and requested it. The heat load I ran said 35,000 btu. A 5 ton is installed in this mans home.
Here are 3 pictures. The whole install looks like this.
This one you can't see that well. They cut 2 main span beams on the house. Not just notched. Cut completely into. They also knocked 1 block pier out of the way for some duct.
This wasn't done by a licensed contractor! What's worse this. The compressor in the original heat pump went bad. From what the man was telling me, the terminal seal blew. Another company sold him a new package heat pump and installed it on this duct. Here is the bad part. The Carrier compressor was still in warranty!
