    why did you seal the air handler doors with silver tape
    It is a air tight air handler with gaskets on the door panels?

    That white stuff painted on everything is horrid!!! Looks like a cover up for lack of proper transitions.


    I wouldn't put my name on it.

    We hang em to. Cannot get away with having disconnect behind unit at all. Has to be off to one side. Above and behind is a no no to.
    If you really know how it works, you have an execellent chance of fixin' er up!

    The disconnect is on the 2x4 framing member right in front and to the side.

    We been using snow insulation so that if your up there in summer, it makes you feel liek its winter...

    Disconnect behind the condenser is no good, the mastic looks horrible, AHU not properly hung, refrigerant lines look like they are run in downspout bought at Home Depot. I CANT STAND CONTRACTORS THAT CHEAP OUT!

    Foil tape on the AHU looks terrible, not to mention it’s not necessary! American Std. has a nice gasket on there AHU's so that you don’t have to do that kind of crap. I would not be proud if that was my work.

    install

    tape is horrible, not needed on a new unit, especially a Trane/American standard....we also have to hang the units as well as the drain pans. You should have made a proper transition for that supply, you have a lot of dead air there causing turbulence. Duct sealant should be used for the tape seams only. The condenser should have been moved over to clear the disconnect. We are required to have 3' clearance in front. And that rain gutter for a line set cover is hideous

    I hate to pile on here but, yeah, its just not a good looking install. Lots of good advice even if its "tough love" Every time I see silver tape all over an air handler I just sit in the attic and weep over my sliced up finger tips hahaha
