    Another change out

    3 ton change out, did a few duct modifications ( added new return, ran round metal for the return in garage)

    Ps. I know it will be a pain to change the blower or coil, I need to switch up the way I hang the handler

    Easy fix for the hangers. The way I always do it is...first, move your hangers so they are wider than the air handler. Second, bolt two more pieces of unistrut parallel with the air handler. Accomplishes two things. Keeps your hangers clear of the equipment and keeps the cabinet from settling so the damn doors will go off and on properly every time.

    I love these, they don't mess around, it gets the slightest bit wet and it's off! They dry off fast also, so you don't have to dink around with them.

    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.

    Yep. Those other types of floats you have to deal with vaccing out the drain pan and spending a bunch more time on it. On air handlers I love putting the 24v safety trap on the secondary as well. Water can cause a lot of damage.

    Oh. And another no-brainer tip. I keep a little hair dryer with me because they arent all residential. Works great for drying these out real quick so you dont have to wait and/or change it out. Great product.
