What kind of mechanical contractor are you?

Did you take the knockouts out?

Is the drain line blocked?

Whats in the drain pan?

Is the coil level or leaning backwards?

Negative pressure on the drain line can often mean that you don't have a trap or a trap of the proper weir dimension on the drain line. Veturi effect.

Dear Hvacmangod.

I do not think you need to known a real problem.All of a mechanical contractors they known their trade.

Just try open more supply line also try open one more drain line.

I hope your systerm will work well.

adjust the fan speed on air handler. you only need 400cfm per ton.

Re: Heil 2.5 Tons Heat Pump Air Handler


I'm just eaves dropping on your conversation, but am curious about the 400cfm/ton comment. If the fan speed is too great, will that cause the negative pressure in the AHU? And also, how would that effect the cooling system in general (i.e. outlet temp would be higher but greater quantity-so does it still take longer to cool home)?

Re: Heil 2.5 Tons Heat Pump Air Handler


If the drain is properly trapped then you are hurting for air (not enough return) my improper english using friend. Whats with the alter ego answer? Stevie wonder could see that relationship.
