    Time to boot the gas hog!





    They kept the media cleaner & humidifier. The A/C was only a few years old. The old coil box was removed and replaced with new metal. The return air boot was purchased, the rest of the metal was our boys.

    Nice work, but.......

    Need to get those boys a pittsburgh, so they can make professional seams. Also needs to be duct-sealed. And I hope that drain from the humidifier was cleaned up a little better. Sorry about the pickiness but I'm sure others will agree. And a question: Why is that gas line 1 inch coming in?

    I like it! Another fine craftsmanship job.

    Do you have more than one guy who can fabricate metal fittings?

    How long did this job take?
    Get back to work.™

    Good, but pittsburgh is better, hate to see screws holding together seams, do your guys know how to do field pittsburghs with a brake?

    I know nothing about metal so don't know what you mean by making pittsburghs with a brake?

    I gotta agree, that hum drain sure takes away from an otherwise nice job. The 1" gas line is left over from the old relic.

    Air Ease Tech 80 is about like any standard 80. The sealed combustion models, single stage & 2 stage, are much quieter with the metal burner box. The Tech 91 shown there isn't particularly quiet. Now that the Dumb Valves are gone, they've been reliable. We great a very low 10 year P&L price and excellent distributor support.

    Look up pittsburgh machine on google and you will find a lot of different brands and price ranges for them. I strongly recommend you guys get one if you are going to be doing a lot of metal work. Basically a field pittsburgh is bending the metal on your brake to mimic what the machine does, can't really explain it in words but it can be done fairly easily. If your guys are halfway decent in metalwork I'm sure they could figure it out. good luck

    Angry

    i would have loved to have a pittsburg machine at my old job, but the boss was too much of a tight @ss to get one...new OR used. all of the ductwork i made was bend and screw just like this one, but to add insult to injury, i only had a four foot brake to use to make all ductwork, and i had to beg for that! before i came along, all they ever used were knock down plenums, and they had any transitions sub contracted out to a welding shop!!!! sometimes i just dont understand the circle of life!

    Looks good.

    That's one large air cleaner! shouldn't have much static on that one.


    Was that a Williamson? Temp-O-Matic?
