Step by Step

The first step is to do a manual J heat loss calculation. The second is a Manual D duct sizing calculation.

I used to be in the field 12 years ago, and I had the Pro do mine.

It's not worth the hassel to do it yourself. and if you do get your furnace on line, You will NOT have any warranity support.

Some dealer will NOT touch the furnace if it was installed by home owner. . They don't want to take on something that will be nothing but problems.
