    New furnace and heat pump installed today

    Our Lennox SLP98 and XP17 were installed today and I'd like to get some critiques of the install. How does it look? I can provide more pics if needed.



    Out with the old....








    In with the new....

    The vent by the heat pump isn't hooked up to anything. I'm not sure what used to be there but it was capped from the inside when we bought the house.

    that line set would be a failure if I were quality control!!

    wonder if the "vent" was/is for fresh air?

    I'd hate to ever have to work on that heat pump. Line set and seal tight should have been ran down the wall then over to it.

    the unit is to close to the house Im sure in the install instructions it will state a min. clearence of prob. 18" or even 2'
    also the fact that it faces the wrong way with the lines crossing the access pannel will be hard to service
    though it is a fairly nice looking install clean looks and good workmanship
    its allways eiseir to stand back and pick apart someonelses work to say would-a should-a could-a

    +1 on hte dryer vent. I really hope that's a fresh air intake of some sort. A codnenser coil will make a fine lint catcher and the warm moist air will make nice ice, droppping effciency by putting you into defrost a little quicker.

    I think the service panel size was intentionally rotated so you could palce it 6" away form the wall. I know Carrier allows 6" if there's 12" on two sides and and 24" on the service panel side. Personally I'd want at least 12" to a wall.

    lineset needs to be elbowed down and routed for free access to service, an inspector should catch that and make them move it, there is no way to service compressor,and internal components, electrical likewise....FAIL

    there is no trap on the condensate line. so the vent is ALWAYS blowing air. I bet if you check the installation instructions, a trap is required.
