Arrow Plenum a leaning tower...

Hi - just finishing a ductwork install for a geothermal system; their last day is tomorrow. I did some checking tonight and noticed that seams that should be taped aren't (obviously not a problem to fix) - but also that the plenum coming off the heat pump is leaning south about 15 degrees--very noticeably off-level.

All the ductwork is hooked in, so, it would be a problem to fix - but of course with a huge expense like this (completely new ductwork throughout; two zones), I want the job done properly.

Does anyone know if such an angle of imbalance in the plenum will be problematic over time?

Thanks for getting back...

Welcome to the forums.

I doubt the ductwork being crooked or off level would cause any problems.
It would be nice to have the seams sealed.

Some pictures would be helpful.

Probably not an issue. But makes you wonder what else could have not been done correctly.
