Very nice Thermopan supply trunk. This was in a round house, with floor trusses, to which the installing contractor apparently had issues getting actual duct installed. We figure about 4-5 boxes of Thermopan, 7-10 roles of foil tape and a pile of staples. The size ranged from 24" x 10" to 22" x 8" and was fed with a 20" x 8" duct with an 8" x 8" jumper shown in the picture. Did a load and it called for 55k heating and 2 tons cooling to which they installed a 4 ton HP and 100k furnace. And this was a "reputable" contractor in our area. Poor lady............"One day closer to retirement"

100 K BTUs ? How did you ever end up back there after they did the job?Did their contraption shut off on high limit until the primary limit melted to the cabinet?Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

We were referred by her neighbor after she was having problems heating the main floor. The first call resulted in a warranty compressor/accum replacement and thats when we got a peak at the primo duct job."One day closer to retirement"

I would hate to see the workmanship of an non-reputable contractor in your area.
