    The only reason I would suggest an 80% furnace is if the venting is impossible to run for a 95+ furnace or you don't use heat very much.

    Looks like dirt from air leakage points to me. That duct system, if you want to call it that, is a terrible design.

    If I installed it and left a leak on my brazed joint (I would have caught it when I pressure tested the install 2 years ago) then I'd fix it for nothing. The only way a leak gets left on a lineset at...

    How do you leave a leak on the lineset like that... IMO that should be fixed by the installer at no charge.

    If they ran a main from outer space then we wouldn't need to use energy to create the suction and no landfills, it would all just float aimlessly in space.

    No, they cannot be combined. You can get a concentric vent kit for both so there will be only 2 terminations. The york can be single piped rather than direct vented.
