Sloppy unproffesional job. Wiring issues, line set looks like ass, gas line not well supported, duct looks way too small, no filter access outside the unit the list could go on. Was this a Home Depot sale ? Also, the venting on the old Rheem, Was that plastic ??:o
Keep in mind.
That some people did their first install text book perfect, and evey install since has also been text book perfect.
So they expect everything to be text book perfect. :)
Brother the job looks decent, I hope put on your thick skin before posting some of these guys are worse than movie critics, don't you wish you could sneak up on one of there jobs after finishing? :eek: IMO "ALL" jobs could have been done a little better, the main thing is and this is truly the only thing that really makes a difference, "Are You Happy" :D
ughhhhhhhhhh........i haven't been coming here a long time but one thing is for sure.....i can't stand these type of threads.........just a bunch of desk jockeys killing some guys work....some may enjoy making themselves feel better by picking apart some other guys work apart.....constructive criticism i can see but nit picking it to death when the customer has no complaints is a waste of time IMHO.
The drain is even more positive if the trap is dry, say, during winter. The furnace drain is also a positive source because it's directly inline with the draft inducer in some way or manner.
Therefore there is a one to one mechanical connection, which doesn't and shouldn't be there.
Maybe it's a one in a million chance but allowing the condensate drain to be mechanically connected to the furnace drain allows for that one in a million time when things don't go according to the book or our theories.
A simple air gap between the two lines after the condensate trap will solve that problem. Or run the two seperately.
Most of it is housekeeping issues with a few exceptions. The gas line I wouldn't leave like that long enough to walk to the truck. Some things the other guys mentioned I didn't pick up on myself so I learned something.
I would just suggest to the OP that what you are witnessing in this thread is how we collectively push each other to a higher level in what we do. There isn't quite as much malice here as it might seem. This is what we do, then we all come out of the woodwork to try to help each other in a bind... I see it over and over.
