    Sorry for the sideways picture. I really don't get how to rotate it on this site.

    And may we assume the back of the furnace is up against a wall?

    All I can say is it took some thought to pipe it in, just no consideration for the servicing. I ordered a new drain trap to exit on other side. Units only 6 months old and not our install, we did A/C after the furnace.

    It is against the wall. I should've taken a picture of the right side, nothing in the way there. They just would've needed drain line extensions to get to the drain trap.

    If it had been our installers there would be a piece of ductwork running in front of it too.

    Don't forget the high voltage, low voltage, condensate pump and the always awesome water heater 3" in front of the unit.
