unit located in below-floor slab perimeter trench (utilized as return-air plenum)
and outdoor condensing unit located on 2nd floor roof. According to Everett
Masters, unit size is nominal 5-ton.
b) Soft copper refrigerant suction and liquid piping with flexible, elastomeric
tubing insulation installed on suction line. Running trap located in 2nd floor
attic horizontal suction line downstream of suction riser.
c) Sheet metal supply ductwork (located in perimeter trench) with external wrap
blanket insulation serving floor-mounted supply register boots located along
north wall. Insulated round flex duct runouts, having spin-in fittings w/damper,
connect to .uninsulated sheet metal supply register boots.
c) Return air floor grille openings (located along south wall) to perimeter trench
return air plenum below.

f) Outdoor condensing unit mounted on extended 4 x 4 wood runners set in pitch
pockets on sloped roof. Low end of unit provided with black-material shims,
high end mounted directly on runner.
g) Combustible wood joists and form boards located in perimeter trench return-air
plenum, along with short section of plastic tube, wiring, and PVC condensate
drain pipe.
h) Dual-switch condensate pump set located adjacent to air handling unit in
perimeter trench R/A plenum. Uninsulated 1/2" copper pump discharge line
connects to 3/4" copper condensate drain riser of 2nd floor unit. Common
3/4" drain then discharges into existing rain leader.

2) Existing second floor system:

a) Existing outdoor condensing unit relocated from porch roof to 2nd floor roof
and mounted on abovementioned extended 4 x 4 wood runners adjacent to new
first floor outdoor condensing unit.

b) Existing air handling unit condensate drain relocated. Drain runs horizontally
in 1st floor ceiling to north wall and down to side tap connection to existing
rain leader. Insulated horizontal section bowed up by other trades should be
adjusted for uniform slope.

CONCLUSIONS: Inspected work satisfactory, subject to comments below.

COMMENTS: Attention is called to the following items for A/E and Contractor
consideration and resolution:

a) Combustible materials in R/A plenum should be protected per
Std. Mech. Code, para. 512.2.
b) Insulation of sheet metal floor register boots, per Std. Mech.
Code, para. 506.2.1.
c) Automatic fan shutdown control, per Std. Mech. Code, para. 515.1.
d) Addition of pipe supports raising refrigerant piping and control
cable (serving condensing unit) above 2nd floor roof a few inches to
permit rainwater to flow to roof drain,
