    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.

    Yes. Before static was .7” with a new filter, I thought I would of been much worse. But once I started removing all the tiles to seal the ductwork I found a lot of massive holes. The people who finished the basement took off the registers that were cut into the trunk and didn’t cover the holes.
