    Not to ask a dumb question but where is the filter? Oh and that is really ugly!

    That's the crappiest install I've seen in awhile. Won't be long until the wood slats are bowing from the weight of the AH.
    Very few systems are exactly 48,000 btu's. Think that is bad- you should see the 5 ton units!
    I think you are worrying about nothing (size wise). I wouldn't give you any money back- I'd refer you to the model number of the condenser (048) & the AHRI match. If it's cooling ok, let it go.

    Wheather you are picky or not would be determined by what your load calc says. From the Pictures I am guessing that you wont be able to get that from this contractor. I dont know when this was installed but as of March 15, 2012 a load calculation is required to change a system in Florida

    That's assuming a permit was pulled. Looking at the pics? I'd bet not.

    I am laughing so hard. I guess it is a joke. That stand has been that way in my home since 1994. It passed whatever codes there were back then. I have lived with it for so long that I didn't even realize how ridiculous it is.

    You would think I my contractor would have done it over the right way.....maybe that wasn't part of the job since I didn't know I need to ask for a proper stand. Funny, seems I have more problems than I realized.

    Don't think you will ever have a problem with return volume.

    You should just slap you a couple more 2x4's on each side of the air handler and you will have it framed in. Slap you a filter rack on there and no more removing the door.
