    My Home

    Having a home built. Finished up the metal today. Installed an ERV, pretty excited for that. Never had one, never installed one. Also picked up a Ultra-Aire 70H to make Teddy Bear happy. I made some videos installing this and making some fittings. I知 gonna figure out how to edit and load to YouTube. Once I figure it out I値l post a link.

    I must compliment you on a trim installation. Also you sure know hour to make a "Teddy Bear" happy and thank you!
    How are you going to connect the Ultra-Aire into the a/c?
    What is your fresh air plan? Climate?
    Keep up the good work!
    Regards Teddy Bear

    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    DANG!!! Lookin' Very Good !!!

    Did you find that by using the Engineered Floor joists that running the Duct, Electric, & Plumbing was easier for the Install?

    It's a beautiful thing. I'm pretty sure you will need some insulation on your ERV

    Thank you Teddy, I enjoy reading all of your comments. Very educational.

    I live in Michigan, green grass climate. I installed an ERV for ventilation. I think eventually I will install the dehum into the duct with a Tee and damper for basement. It痴 undersized for the house and basement. Ideally I just got it for the basement. I have a 5 stage VS Ac going in, I want to see how that handles humidity during low load conditions first. Plus I致e never had an ERV either so I want to see how that helps as well.

    I will keep you posted.

    Why the sheet metal between the furnace and coil? They look to be the same width.

    Great looking metal work.
    Use the biggest hammer you like, pounding a square peg into a round hole does not equal a proper fit.

    Shiny!

    Looks great. I like the elevated furnace to make use of the large air filter. I predict your house will be very comfortable.
