    The flex sucks but other than that good job.

    Tin looks a little odd prefab? Seems like missing crossbreaks ans awfully short chunks unless I'm seeing pic wrong

    I think they're cross-broke horizontally rather than diagonally.

    I don't like that takeoff so close to the plenum like that, always see too much or too little airflow from that area. The install looks nice and clean, I like the large return drop. I'm sure that system is quiet.

    Thanks guys,the flex does suck
    Will prob do it different next time.
    All metal was bought except for drop 90 we made it it has cross breaks .the take off is close to the plenum dont normally do that but it is a short run to a small bathroom, works fine.

    I like to use rigid pipe for hrv's, then just wrap it as I go or come back later with foil backed insulation, takes longer of course but the amount of friction loss and dynamic loss you save is incredible, plus it looks real good. I could never get a flex job to look real good. Nice work though

    I really dislike seeing the intake and exhaust running right in front of evaporator coil access panel. I would like to see them come out the right side of the unit so the panel can easily be removed and evaporator cleaned.

    There are no other options on the EL296, or any of the other Lennox high efficiency furnaces. Can't rotate the inducer. Only possibility would be to turn the evaporator 90 degrees, but I'm not sure that it would line up on the furnace correctly as I've never tried it.

    regarding exhaust/intake - we do mostly lennox. usually not a problem to remove the panel to service coil since the screws are not hidden. have seen rheem installs where the cased coil is rotated so access is 90 degrees away from pvc venting.
