AC Install Day Four: Monday, June 20th, 2005

Monday, June 20th, 2005

Minor setback

At some point over the weekend one of the AC guys realized that they made a mistake and that they shorted the breakfast room, the dining room, and the sun room by one duct. So they spent about 2/3 of the day making a big mess in the front office, the guest room, and the half bath and breakfast room. They seemed pretty bummed about having to effectively redo a lot of the grueling nasty work that they thought they were done with. Who wouldn’t be?

There was another unplanned interruption: the condenser came a day early. We went ahead and put it in the garage–they should be ready to install that tomorrow. I’m curious to see it when they get it out of the box–it’s a HUGE box and the typical condensers I see are about half the size of the box.

They cleaned up from that and spent some time running BX conduit from the basement near the electrical panel up to the attic and then across the attic to the blower.

Setbacks aside, all is still going well and the guys feel confident that they’ll be done by Noon on Friday.
