This was original duct work from who knows how long ago. ?
It's a pretty bizarre setup. That particular run goes into a very large diameter duct (maybe 12" x 12") and runs about 35 feet under the house. Believe it or not, it only feeds to small registers. The air is luke warm by the time it gets to them.
More can be seen here.....

They didn't do that. I taped that about (10) years ago. I saw a gap between the (2) pipes and went to town with the duct tape.
The outer (bigger diameter) pipe appeared to be double-walled. It looked really odd to me so I taped the crap out of it and sealed it tight.
EDITED..... I just found an OLD pic of what it looked like BEFORE I taped it up.

I should mention also we have (3) CO2 detectors running. One in the crawl space (not far from the furnace), 1st and 2nd floors. None have ever gone off.
Here's some old scary pics of the old furnace setup when we bought the place (17) years ago.
Note the copper pipe running from the AC condensor to the back corner. No drain pipes available. Talk about a damp, moldy mess! I fabricated a piece of PVC out to a 5 gallon bucket that had a sump pump in it. We would have to empty it every few hours when the AC was running. Crude yes, but it WORKED!
Part of the new install will be to fabricate a new automatic sump pump to the furnace/coil. That will be done when the come back in the springtime to recharge the AC.
BTW, the old duct work that was done on this new install was the 2-12" flexible hose connections and the new plenum before the filter. Nothing else was done to the existing duct work.

why did the not install a filter rack with a door .that job looks low bidder to me and will perform like it .if the reused the coil hope they cleaned it also would want it reconnected and recharged before paying as if they are competent it could be doneThe governent can not give anything to someone that it has not first taken from someone else

They could have done a couple of different things. 1) they could have installed a box plenum that went to the floor joists, come off the back with a start collar into a short way 45, then into a long way 90. or 2) used a radius plenum
either one will make for MUCH better air flow.GOVERNMENT

That is the ONLY thing the Tech touched and now the furnace appears to be working ok.
I find it very odd that that part touching the cabinet was causing the furnace to not turn ON.
Why would the orientation of the pressure diaphram make any difference to the pressure readings ?
