    Another Goodman

    I know it could've been any manufacture, but it just happens to be a Goodman. I don't know where these installers came from. Can't even remove the panel where the gas valve is due to the way they plumbed the gas line; without removing the panel above it, that is. And I don't have a clue what's behind that panel where the fresh air intake is. Guess it's not important.

    Must have had a reason to mount the unit in that position instead of turning it 90 degree CCW and reduce the ductwork.......maybe not

    Ya that's special. I've lost out on too many jobs only to come back and find a wizard of Oz duct job. Mostly it is good man's too.

    1) spaghetti of gas time and power to disconnect tight like a guitar string in front of electrical panel so you couldn't get it off.

    2) Goodman straddling 2 curbs. They decided the ducts would line up better if the used the neighboring units rough in curb as well.

    At least you always have a job fixing mistakes.

    Oh I'm sure there was a reason. Probably trying to figure out the difference between their butt and a hole in the ground.

    Actually, if you look at it, it would've been easier and faster to mount the unit 90*'s then have the plenums made and cut holes in the bottom for the round duct going through the roof. So there are only two things that make sense. First it was super rush job and didn't want to wait for the plenums to be made. Or they were just too lazy to do it proper and went to the closest place that had round duct and pookie.

    The gas line tells me lack of experience played a bigger roll in this.

    Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or serious.

    Are those flex connections plastic or canvas? they look kinda like plastic?

    Just think - at least he didn't try and screw the kindorff mounts to the roof!

    looks like he didn't turn it 90 degrees because the power wouldn't reach and he didn't know how to electrical.
