Air Conditioning [page 2]

Happy Labor Day. Hot. 95 °F outside and upstairs. Will probably get a bit hotter before the day is out. Alas, the air conditioning we’re adding to the house is mid install. The install will probably be done about the time the heat wave passes!

This work was done Saturday, but I didn’t take any pictures. It brings the lines from the upstairs head unit down to the heat pump. Obviously, there is still more to do. The black insulation is UV protected, but it is still going to be painted with an additional white colored UV protectorant.

The lines feeding the downstairs head unit will come out through the hole in the shelf, angle up and run across the top of the shelf, down the side, then along the wall until it gets to a spot behind the dryer where it will exit through the wall to attach to the heat-pump. I’m not sure the path of the drain line. It might run across the back of the shelf.

The hole does not go all the way through into the family room, yet. A pilot hole has been drilled. The hole will be drilled from the family room side when it comes time to mount the head unit on the wall.

Tomorrow the electrician is scheduled to arrive to route power to the heat-pump.

I got a text last night from the HVAC installer saying he’d not heard from the electrician. OK, no electical hook-up today. Still other work to do.

A hole was gut in the wall going into the garage. You can see one of the coper pipes peeking out in the first image. The other images were taken after the 2nd line was routed through the hole. The lines follow the wall around the corner then up the wall to reach the top of the cabinet.

Back to the exterior. The lines will be hooked up to lower set of connection points on the heat pump. Don’t know how the hole will eventually be sealed. Must keep the rodents out.

I didn’t take any pictures, yesterday. The lines that will go to the downstairs head unit were attached to the heat pump and power/control cable was run.

Today the drain tube for the downstairs unit was run across the back of the garage cabinet then down and out to the external garage wall. It will drain into the same location that the downspout from the roof, a french drain system that surrounds the perimeter of much of the house.

The needed hole was put in the wall and the downstairs head unit mounted. The lines from the head unit run through the hole and into the garage.

I’m told the electricians will be here at 8 AM tomorrow. I hope that is correct. While the electricians are doing their thing the lines will be connected to head unit.
