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

    Nice. Glad to see the 2 pipe installation. Also the box under the furnace so the entire 20x25 filter gets airflow. Nice return elbow.

    I’m confused. What is the transition on the inside?

    Best return drops in the biz. I always put a brass cap on the txv equalizer port and a little leak lock. Guess the schrader gets burned up during installation and leaks. Its only about four inches from the suction line connection.

    Not sure its an issue with the uncased coils but definitely is with the airhandlers.

    Not a lot of install now days but on start up I being a 5/16 drill bit and pop holes for temperature difference keeps clean so other techs don’t bend flanges etc looking for gaps just cover with a cap

    Excellent as always!
    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 coil opening is a bit small so instead of the air just running into a big flat surface it's funneled nicely into the coil.

    Makes sense. So you were able to do that and not have any limit issues? With your ductwork I would be surprised if it doesn’t.

    Awesome work as always. I'm curious how that funnel works. Have you done this a lot or trying out something new? I hate finding undersized openings in coils. Happens a lot on older systems. Even worse is finding a sliver half the size of the coil opening cut by the prior installer. If this works well i'm definitely interested in trying it.

    I've been doing it forever with uncased coils, anytime you make a smooth transition it's going to help airflow.

    That is awesome work and I can see the pride you have in your work by the final result.

    Now, how in the heck do you make that return drop do a wiggle like that?

    You make it look easy.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
