    First Eastern Oregon job.

    2 zone mini-split. Mitsubishi, nothing too complicated.

    We dug out and embedded some cinder blocks. I honestly dont really like those stands. Im going to see if I can convert to doing wall brackets here.

    Side note. I am noticing a lot of systems zoned here when not really necessary. Yesterday I was at a 1600 sq ft rambler that was zoned east/west, just didnt seem necessary. And to make matters worse it was a single stage furnace and AC. I got in a little bit of an argument with my brand new coworker on the issues that will arise from doing that. His response was that is the way they do them, lol. Im going to start ruffling feathers already.

    if done right the stands are fine the wall mounts do look better but as long as its secured and works that's what matters.
    I know about zoned systems the building i am helping them heat balance better has 97 units each unit has it's one zone valve for the baseboards and a few other zones for the common areas like the bathrooms the community room the vestibule and the office and library and this place burns natural gas for the heating only when it was built in 1979 it burned oil i cant imagine the oil bill back then still has the vintage Honeywell thermostats in the hallways but no longer do anything but look good

    I don't think they even sell the stuff here to run it or some redneck in a trailer would have already put it on and ran it around to the front of his house and moved his unit to the front to show of his drunk ford ground effects looking skills(you know, looks a little crooked)
