Now, I put a board up here since there wasn’t a rafter there. And then I put some screws in it so we have something very solid to fasten to right here. And then we put a board right here. Stay even with this, and I’ll show you why. So that we can have the leg be able to fasten right here. I might have to do the same thing on top of rafter. For the rafter put like a 30” board up there and fasten it with screws.

But that area where the where you’re going to have your freon lines, you’re going to have to do something else to support it. In this case, we might be able to reach right here. If not, we’re going to have to fastened something to the rafter and then we can put the, the attachment pieces that they have and connect that to that. And then we might build the fashion to support this on top of this board here.

So that’s what we’re at next. Now, we’re going to take you through taking apart the box for the head that’s going to go up here. Not the cover for the head, but the head itself.

They give you a pattern. This is basically the shape of the cartridge, which is this right here or that? The cartridge with the head, itself the main body. And this shows you where the hooks are and everything. So if you want to have rods or something to fastened it to, you can have this to give you a reference. But this has a big gap, though.

It’s got like a one inch gap or all the way round, and you’re not going to have that when it comes to rafters unless you just cut the rafter, one of the rafters out, and then you’d have to add some wood to get that one inch a room around it. You get to see us go through this journey for the second time, and this is what we’re looking at.

The power will come in through here. And so with the control wires, there’s some more control wires that go in right here. We had to figure that out. But you take the screws right here. Right here. And that one. And this one, maybe that one. Now that one stays, that’s just grounds.

So you get those, then it pulls off and you could see everything inside there. We don’t need to do that right now. Where we’re going to pull this out.

So there’s instructions in here. There’s lots of stuff that will go to the cover or the cassette itself. Cassette cover. That’s a remote control, a number of other things.

Now, you get an installation manual, pretty specific, kind of tends to be for like a acoustical ceiling commercial situation. And that’s why I’m showing you what I’ve learned along the way. Now, this is upside down. It’s going to go up like so it has these support areas which we’ve been using that to help support it there in this blue package.

It has a washer and four both bottom and top, and you want to open them up a little bit more here. And this is kind of added, this is your drain and here’s your freon lines. Now, the freon lines are going to be pointing. To go down like. That. Like that. Yeah. So it will lay down. These freon lines will go through that slot right there that we made. We had to learn. So now these supports. And your electrical will come in right here.

See that hole with the electrical? Right there. What size wrench was this? 5/8. You have a socket there, if you want to use a socket. So this goes like that. Yeah. Probably should have got two wrenches. Try that socket? Ya I know. and then.

We probably should move it to one of the corners so it doesn’t try. To come through? Come out. Ya. I think I’ve got down in that slot. Yeah. That’s why you have to move it to the corner. You see that. Loosen it up. There you go. This will be facing the same way. Face it, to where it would hang the same. But this, when you tighten it up twice.

You’ve got to keep now on it. So that’s facing where you want it to. In these cases, we have a rafter right here to fasten to. Happens to be that we can do that. Now we’re going to do the other side, which is that’s going to face was going to face that way to fasten to that board up there.

The one’s going to face this way to fashion to that board we put up. So, that’s what we’re working on next move. So this one’s nice out. Yeah. Face this way. Let’s put this way, that way. Is it that way? Yeah. When you’re rolling it all, you want to be careful crush these.

I leave enough room on the bottom of it to adjust it up and down if I have to. That’s what the threads are for. All right. In the kit, it has these anchors for concrete and hooks, they would help you hook into that. Into the concrete probably would be from the other side. But we’re not going into concrete. It tells you what it’s for a more commercial, like inside of a concrete building with concrete floors up the next floor up. So that’s what that’s for. And you’re not going to end up using that. Those actually will pull down or.

In reality, you could use, if it was inside of the wall, inside of a wall, you could probably use an inside the wall to and suspend it that way, on one side. But we’re not having any of that situation in a house-house. This is really unusual house. So we’ve set it all up so we have the ability to put this up in there.

Now, this is supposed to be 7/8 of an inch above the finished ceiling. So we had a piece of wood that is 7/8 of an inch. So all I got to do is do that. And then he can fasten it while he’s up in the hot attic fastening through these holes. We have to use roofing skirts. We’re using quarter inch roofing screws with there. It has a washer on it and using a quarter inch driver and an impact battery powered gun up in the attic. So I can’t take a long time doing it because he’ll cook up there, which is part of the air conditioning guy trade. Now. So we’re going to get ready for that.

And I guess I’ll get somebody else come in here and help video us putting it up in there and we’ll get ready and he’ll climb up in the attic and away we go.
