    The furnace has to be upside down... Look at the writing on the labels on the blower door cover (its not aligned on the left like you would expect), and look at the energy guide on the side of the furnace. Also, I don't believe the flue was designed to be ran that way...

    Actually, you can install those furnaces upside down, as per the manual.
    I've done it once.
    Mine didn't look like that though....

    It is a multiposition furnace, upflow, downflow, horizontal right, and horizontal left. The vent pipe, while annoying, is run "correctly". There is a full cover for the front of the furnace that has appropriate knockouts for the vent pipe.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    There was a time when Lennox made counter flow furnaces with stainless exchangers and that application was acceptable. But that ain't one of em.
    If you really know how it works, you have an execellent chance of fixin' er up!

    Tomorrow is promised to no one...

    The furnace is fine. They just built the house wrong. They put the floor on the wrong end.

    I think the flue looks more like shiat than the a-coil. At least they trapped it. Doubt the blower will trip due to overfreezing.
    Why the hell mfr's allow the vent pipe to be run up in front of the blower is beyond me. Have fun getting that blower out. Let alone the panel.
    HEY!! MFR's, RUN THE VENT PIPES TO THE SIDE!!

    This one can be vented to the side. The installer was just too stupid to do it. Running it up over the blower motor is sometimes a necessity in tight spaces, but obviously this is not a tight space.
