    3 zone trane/custom home

    Got one day into the final phase of the project. Colleagues roughed all the duct in. My job is the mechanical room. Here is progress after day one.

    Looks good.

    Not picking on your work, just a general opinion. I have a hard time getting use to round pipe for duct trunk lines. Part of it has to do with loosing the art of building duct and fittings. Most places if you can't program it into the machine they can't build it. It always saddens me when I have to tear out beautiful old duct that was all made by hand and fit like a glove but it is too small for the job at hand. Seeing the work of some on this site lets me know it will be a round for a while longer but fewer and fewer are learning the magic of making a flat sheet into a 3D fitting.

    Sadly, we do not see that top quality rectangular hand made ducting much...
    We do see older run of the mill, assembled from pre-made parts from the supply house... rectangular trunk and drops systems... and honestly, removing them and replacing them with flex is a service, rather than a dis-service to the customer (most of the time, the old metal duct systems are not fitted together well and leak worse than they carry air).

    Round flows better and is more practical when headroom isnt an issue. The trade is where it is. I can build you the nicest rectangular duct you have ever seen....Lets be real though. Round dampers are much cheaper and the round stuff is the norm. My work will stand the test of time and will be sized and sealed properly. Final product coming on Tuesday.

    Oh. And an addendum to this. Keep in mind, and tread a little lightly on the critiques. I am not designing these systems but I am making sure the part I do is done properly and that does include making corrections as needed. I have probably posted more pics on the WOP in Hvac-talk history than anyone else so I can take the criticism. Just keep in mind what and who you are criticizing.

    That round looks a little small. Are you sure its the right size?
