    Maybe not that proud but unique

    Low headroom basement and customer wanted furnace and ac. Converted furnace to down flow into a box with turning vanes and upflow through coil. Job is obviously not done but the shell is in. 20x20 filter rack incorporated into return which is on top of furnace.

    It looks real nice. Never mind my previous rambling, I mis-read the post and thought the air was going the other direction.

    I like it ! Be sure to add the completed photos.
    No room for a horizontal app most likely.

    That's a nice design and execution. What were static pressures?

    I worked on a whole townhouse complex that had AC coils mounted farther down the ductwork in the crawl due to vertical space challenged furnace installs above the crawl. Seemed to work fine if their were no other ductwork issues.

    You couldn't put in a Horizontal Unit? And, was more R/A added than what appears to be that 7"? 8"? Round? Belay that,... with the Filter Rack, at the top,... is this pulling from a Floor Return?

    Horizontal would have been much more difficult. There was a 8x24 floor grill added in the floor offset left. 2 floor joists panned across above plenum and into the 20x20 filter rack that is built into the return box. The 7-8 round is actually a supply that was not connected yet. 9) 6" rounds off the plenum and since there is no heat upstairs, we are pulling a 14 round off the back and going into the attic to supply 3br and a bath on the 2nd floor. 120yr old farm house with challenging ducting. I would have liked to add return for the upstairs and not used a central return downstairs but it wasn't in his budget

    Could you have made the return plenum shallower and helped out your base a little and made it taller?
