I was about 13 years old the first time I bent EMT with my uncle. We were doing a renovation at a church, and watching him bend EMT and then getting to do it MYSELF was a truly religious experience.

There are a few things in the trade where workmanship really comes into play such as copper pipework, making up a panel or fabricating ductwork… bending EMT belongs on that list. While most commercial electricians do it every day, HVAC techs and installers only run into an application where we do it on a rare occasion. When that does happen its good to have a basic understanding of how it works. In this video Juan from the The Air Conditioning Guy channel goes over some quick basics on bending EMT

On occasion you will either find a furnace or be tasked with installing a furnace where the coil overlaps the edge of the furnace because the coil is wider. In the case of a Carrier CNPVP coil you need to ensure that you align the coil according to manufactures specs or you risk cutting off about 1/3 of the airflow.

The best case scenario is to use a coil that is a sizer match for the coil or to buy or make a  tapered metal transition between the furnace and the coil. The the case of the CNPVP the manufacturer allows the coil to be offset to the left.

In this video we illustrate replacing a leaking coil and reconfiguring it in the proper orientation.
