Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. I am starting a project and hope to get some ideas from the HVAC Gods on this forum. I am somewhat handy when it comes to planning and making things, however home HVAC systems are new to me.
Our home has an Arocaire Heating & Air-conditioning system in the garage. The air intake comes through the wall into the living area and makes way too much noise when it runs.
I am planning to rework the system and move the fresh air intake about 16 feet through the attic and have a filter door in a small hallway.
Currently the blower housing has the inlet and filter in the side of the housing, I will need remake a stand/box for the unit to sit on in order to make the changes I need.
Can I redirect the fresh air intake from the bottom of the unit and what type (material & sizes) of ducting is recommended when reworking the system. What size filter is recommended? Where is a good place to buy the materials I need?
