    The T&P drain pipe is also not up to code. It's supposed to go straight down from the T&P and terminate between 3-6 inches from the floor.

    I'm a little surprised the guy didn't have a Lennox Pulse, a Carier Triple Split or maybe an Amana HTM in there just to make things even more exciting!

    According to searspartsdirect.com, the crosslighter is No Longer Available. That's kind of strange, because I just changed one of those last year. Maybe Heil or ICP could help you out.

    Can't seem to find any nits to pick on this one. Really like the metal stands as a way to keep equipment off the basement floor. That must have made it a much easier install. Good job!

  14. Think this might be why you have airflow problems?

    Got stuck with this today when I was working in the Hood. Customer says "the air comes out cold, but it don't come out very fast."
