This is from the site email. I have also attached their pictures for your convenience.
To Whom It May Concern:
Please let me know if the furnace shown below is in the correct position.
It is supposed to be a down-flow furnace; however the labeling is up-side
down . . . or is the furnace up-side down?
(See attached file: From Hallway.jpg)(See attached file: Upside-down
Please respond ASAP.

I know goodman units can be mounted in downflow situation and the doors are upside down.
I wish the first picture was a wider angle. It's tough to tell. I had thought about flipping it for them but this site was recommended to them for help.
I don't do residential so I have no clue. As if that is a suprise to any of you. ;)

Yes, those Bryant/Carrier/Payne units are multipoise.
I asked for a wider angle of the furnace...
Cannot post the photo until tomorrow.
I am a customer & the unit is running 140 minutes to 2 hrs. just to take
the chill off my house (65 degrees) which took my old furnace about 15-20
minutes to do. I have to turn down the thermostat to cut off the
furnance because I don't want the exhaust flue to burn anything in my
attic. The ducts going underneath my house are cool.

This is what I see...
I don't see the flue pipe coming out of the side of the unit or the bottom of the unit so the flue pipe might be running to the top of the door and out the top which is the correct orientation for a payne in downflow position..A pic of the furnace with the flue pipe configuration would help clear that up..
Also the furnace taking 2hrs to take the chill off??
Do you mean that the furnace can not maintain the setpoint of the thermostat or that you set back the thermostat and then expect the unit to heat your home right back up when you set the themostat back up? What temperature do you set your themostat at and do you set it lower when you leave(what temp)? It could be that your old unit was oversized!! and this unit is properly sized and working properly..
I do have one concern!!! If the louver door you have is made of wood, it should be replaced with a metal louver door as you should not have any flamable material right infront of the furnace.. This was incorrect for your old unit also..So unlesss the door is a metal door I would suggest to replace the louvered doors with metal louvered doors for safety..
