    Nothing special

    Itís nothing to Fancy but Iím proud of it, I hope yíall donít burn me to bad..

    I went with 1.5 ton w/ 2 ton TAM9, I still have a couple touch ups to do on the install. They sent the wrong fire damper brackets so Iím waiting on them. We have a 1 bed/1 bath/ kitchen and living room above garage. I did run a load Calculation, it dialed in on 1.5 tons but I thought going variable speed airflow and helping maintain the CFMs across the bigger coil would give me a little bit more humidity control. Itís the first time Iíve tried this technique but I feel confident about it rather than throwing a extra 1/2 ton ďjust for the heck of itĒ the garage is unconditioned space except for a half bath. The main electrical panel is about 10-15 feet from the AH. I paid for the custom metal brackets out of pocket rather than a 2x4 shelf. I also verified with my local inspector that the blower motor housing is acceptable for fire damper access since I had no room and had to mount it so close to the unit. I am aware that this would be a complete pain to replace in the future but the builder left me with no other good options... I tried to think ahead in every way possible but Iím posting this for yíalls thoughts and opinions. Name:  IMG_2755.jpg

    It is very neat.

    Is it your usual practice to connect the primary and secondary drains?

    edit- I enlarged the picture and I see the the secondary is not connected. However, it appears the the drain is not trapped. Please let me know if I’m wrong.

    And I commend you for not upsizing it “just because.”

    How did it get rocked/taped (top/back) after the fact?
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    The secondary port has a inline float switch thatís capped off. I do have a trap but was worried it might drip water on his work bench this summer so I insulated the drain line.

    The top is rocked but they couldnít get behind it. The drywall stops at the top of the bracket. Is it bad to say that I wanted the unit in place before they put the drywall up.

    If I had my way, the equipment wouldn’t go in until the drywall was finished. If it’s not there they can’t use it during construction.

    I thought about it but the support brackets had to go in first either way and once they were in place I knew that was my best opportunity to seal my duct connections, and no I didnít screw anything together that you canít get to right now. Might have to rip some tape but thatís it. I also left the unit disabled until after the clean up was done and screwed wood over the vents

    Where's the shut off switch for the AH? as the sealtite looks to me anyway to go directly into the AH.
