    Not quite done, but almost.

    This job is a two part install. Home has 2 systems, we're changing the second one next week. Replacing 2 xl14i total electric systems with a xr17 (2 stage 3 ton) and xr 14 (single stage 1.5 ton) and s9x2 furnaces (converting to propane when he figures out where the tank will be set). The 3 ton system, pictured below with the exception of vent pipes, gas lines, and a new humidifier had a 2 zone ewc zone system, replaced it with an arzel 2 zone heat pump pro. Xl824 on upstairs zone, also going to control the humidifier, and xl624 in the basement linked to nexia through the 824. There are a few things left to tidy up but we'll be back Monday working on the other system on the other side of the garage. Horribly humid here right now so hopefully next week I can get the duct sealed up a little better, no point in trying when it's sweating like that. The garage is mainly a hobby spot, there is a 3 car garage above used for vehicles.

    Closer, just missing a humidifier and propane

    Forgot to post these. Got the other system changed out. Cleaned and reused a humidifier but waiting in a second one to install on the first system we changed. I like using the 824 thermostats as the humidistat. Do you guys prefer enabling the humidistat feature on capable thermostats as opposed to a humidistat at the return duct?

    Do it once, do it right.

    It will take as long as it takes, which will be not as long if you let me do my job.

    Thanks, not sure what seal tite you're referring to. They both had water coils for an outdoor wood burner.

    Or are you referring to the abandoned propane lines? He used to have 2 tanks sitting there for a fireplace. We're running new lines throughout the house for future tankless water heaters and to hook back up the fireplace. Propane company wouldn't set the tank behind the house, too far from driveway. We are also running a line to his garage in the back yard for another furnace. Propane company wouldn't set a 500 gallon tank because of the heat pumps but agreed to change it if they have to fill too often, which I know will be the end result.
