    Your guys run pipe quite well.
    Or are you known as "dead eye".
    Had a boss once we called "dead eye"
    could catch something out from 50 ft.

    Remember to change the supply air plenum on that air handler!

    Nice!! It sure is nice to be able to seperate the heat
    and ac from the same distribution system.
    How many weeks you got on this one?

    Sorry I see that hydro air,well then it great to see its
    a closed system.

    Thats nonsense....Read your info carefully
    Ideally trees grow to the Sky.
    You are limited by overhead and these suggested dimensions
    are just that. Engineers pipe dreams.
    Besides how do you know the sizes? Just pot shot guesses.

    everyones a critic

    well if u didnt notice theres a hydrocoil on that airhandler and well the plenum is sized to that.Also the sheet metal work believe it or not was a breeze.Its all in the tape measure.I find the job is 90 % design.U design it right and well its like a assembly line from there

    That look really nice.Not bashing you by any means,but if the tank was pushed in the corner & a few peices of unistrut anchored to the wall it could have looked even better.I have done them both ways & think it makes a really neat job if you can run the zone headers to look like they were a work station anchored to the wall.An open slot 2x2 wiring raceway like used for computer cables really makes the mess of wires from multiple zones look awesome too.
    Take your time & do it right!

    Again Baldie is right you should not reduce the size of the supply plemun towards the duct, and don't you guys use plenum take offs. The way you have the plenum tied into the bottom of the supply duct makes for poor air flow.

    what

    listen the air flow is unreal in this house.Tell ya what considering the plenum was sized and designed by a rheem rep tells me that u guys should maybe keep it to yourselves!

    Talking reading is fundamental...

    Having seen the manufacturers instructions, I feel the need to give a quick English lesson. Notice the words they choose for their instructions.
    Must and Should...

    Flanges around blower opening for attaching supply duct MUST be bent up out of blower discharge...
    Supply plenum SHOULD be the same size as the flanges around the blower outlet and SHOULD extend ideally 3 feet from unit before....etc etc etc...
    Ideally?
    Well, there's another one...

    must
    v.
    v. aux.
    To be obliged or required by morality, law, or custom: Citizens must register in order to vote.
    To be compelled, as by a physical necessity or requirement: Plants must have oxygen in order to live.


    should

    aux.v.
    Used to express probability or expectation: They should arrive at noon.



    And let's not forget this word....

    ideally

    adv.
    In theory or imagination; theoretically.

    I'll put these in layman's terms...
    Must = ya gotta...
    Should = ya oughtta
    Ideally = in a perfect world...
    i.e- Ideally, these systems would install themselves.

    Jeeze, guys, don't argue.

    The fact he's using Jap products speaks for itself.

    And just in case: Rheem, Ruud ect ect... owned fully by Paloma water heater company: a huge Jap company.

    They closed down the Weatherking ac plant where I live and idled 700 people and then put rhe Weatherking label
    on their crummy-customer-unfriendly-impossible-to-clean-hard-to-service-jack -in-the-box-style condenser.

    Buy TRUE American products guys.
