Welcome to Just Answer! Thank you for requesting me!.

I hold questions open after positive ratings to allow for unlimited follow up. Please be patient though. T

he research & typing take time.

The coil cabinet can be an inch or two smaller than the furnace or blower cabinet without affecting the operation of the system.

Thats quite common, especially in humid climates such as the gulf coast or florida.

Tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and the brand name of the coil the contractor is recommending.. and a bit about the rest of the project and his quote price.

We can go from there without any time limit.I will be going to bed shortly, if I miss you tonight I will pick your response up in the morning,
