    Can't always find a way to vent a 90. Or some just don't want them.

    Around here, many or most jobs aren't permitted. Even if it is, probably won't be inspected. Many areas outside Indy itself have no licensing and permitting anyway. And with homeowners beating us down to the last dollar, b-vent seems to be one of the first things to go. I know our salesmen/owner rarely use it. If you do, you likely will be too high and lose the job. Sad but true.

    Wow that's horrible, I honestly only see mid efficients when I'm tearing them out, and that isn't like any b-vent I have ever seen, plus up here you can't horizontally vent with b-vent, has to be stainless now, use a product called z-vent, very nice to work with but stupid expensive

    The customer didn't want the communicating thermostat. He chose a Honeywell Pro 5000, 2 stage heat and 2 stage cool.

    As far as the flue goes, its single wall to a masonry chimney with a flue liner kit. its in a closet in the home, no need for b-vent.

    Thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it. :0)

    No need for bvent? I say this in all honesty as a serious question. Category 1 venting requires bvent minimum?

    Nice job! Like the SpaceGaurd air filter... wish they still made them.

    Those rectangle outdoor units will be history in a a few years... shame, they are tuff units.

    Many of my customers do not want the factory stats either... I use the HoneyWell Prestige line most of the time with 2/2 installs.

    Rheem/Ruud has a new high-end stat coming soon... wonder if it will be 'up to date'...

    If you look at the venting tables and look at the input for low fire, odds are it will call for b-vent connector even indoors, if one wants to be technical.

    You boys selling much Rheem?

    AlliedAir is still my 'bread and butter' line... cheap and easy to install.

    Most of my basic installs is a VS furnace with basic coil and AC... with media filter.

    When a customer wants better equipment or high efficient equipment, I usually use Rheem or Ruud.
