"Do they have a recirculating system running full time or occupancy center type? Calcification of the elements generally results in degraded performance though I guess it could be overheating causing it to trip (wild guess - not sure they are set up…"

"Based on what I see on the pics you can't really - 2x4 wall with no soffit? The only code approved away is to seal those up & go with a hot roof system which still might not make code for the minimum required"
