    A Nice Upgrade

    Homeowner had comfort issues. Typical 18 year old new construction home. Ductwork way undersized everything 6” runs unbalanced, the list goes on. Installed two stage furnace and two stage AC. Increase second floor runs to 7”, sealed ductwork and balanced. Happy customer.

    Beautiful work as always. Love that coil access door nice and open for service with nothing blocking it.

    Beautiful install. Sheet metal fab is such an amazing art. I wish i knew had to do it. Living in south Florida I don’t get a chance to do it.

    Excuse my ignorance; what’s that thing on the return plenum?

    No worries. I’m guessing you’re talking about the humidifier? Something I don’t imagine needing in Florida lol.

    You’re welcome. That’s pretty cool! I used to work for a Carrier dealer in the field. Now I work for a Carrier distributor doing field support and training.

    It Seriously Looks Good Johoff.

    Is there a hanger on that gas line, so as to take the weight off of the gas valve?

    Is the outlet of the air cleaner blocked off somewhat?

    And, is that drain for the humidifier laying flat on the floor?

    The collar between the furnace and the evap coil casing is great. Makes for good measurements.

    UTC is Headquartered in my state and the largest employer. In UTC umbrella Pratt & Whitney Aircraft engines being the largest employer. People tend to think ( especially here IMO ) that for the most part their HVAC brands and Automated Logic controls are their only lines. That's so far from the truth, until couple/three years ago they owned Sikorsky Helicopters, which is still based in my state, they own one of the world leader, Otis elevators, amount many other global reaching companies. Myself, thou I put Goodman Heat Pumps in my residence 15 years ago, and they are still going strong, no leaks, all original parts except the defrost boards.

    Thank you.

    No hanger, main line is supported. I could of put a hanger there but missed it.

    The 6” box under the furnace is cut out for the air cleaner. Allows for all 20” to be used.

    No it’s sloped back.

    Hate to see the Mexican A/C but amazing work. Static is perfect, you don't see that much. The box under the furnace so the entire media cleaner gets airflow is rare. Keep showing us jobs like this. Might inspire better work from the rest of us!

    Its funny. You dont see static within specs very often but I have to say, the new company I am working for does a fine job on duct design. Most systems are .5-.6 tesp. Unheard of in the Portland area for new construction.

    I feel like it’s easier for AOR to obtain it. I was in a meeting with a new dealer we were trying to convert from Trane. All new construction, they explained there systems on average are .9”-1.4” of static. I was thinking to myself please don’t get these people lol. More phone calls for me.

    That is a beautiful install. Ever considered a little metal or clear plastic folder with the service/install manuals mounted on the system with a full start up report including static pressures, amps (with doors on) ect?

    We dont get installs like that around here and you cant blame anybody. The main concern is where is the bucket to puke in after spending half a day up in a sweltering muggy attic.

    Upside is static pressures aren’t usually much of a problem unless the system has been “upgraded” more then once or some odd design. Its easy enough to run big enough flex. Not so with basement units conditioning two story homes.

    Never mind... I now see your folder. Does that have a start up sheet in it? Tesp and drop across the coil would be awesome. Even better flue temp and other combustion numbers.

    I see holes on either side of the air filter on the old unit. Did you by chance take TESP readings before you did the change out? How much of the duct did you modify? Looks fantastic!

    Thanks. Yes I keep a commission sheet in there. I just use the Carrier ones, they’re pretty thorough.
