    Lineset cover

    We did this system for someone 2 years ago, nice neat lineset cover for the new refrigerant lines.




    Their neighbor liked the way it looked, so when he got his system replaced, he told his HVAC hack that he wanted a cover "just like it" for the new lines to his system.

    Well, it is the same exact cover we used...


    I'd have to look it up, but I'm reasonably sure this is in violation of the IMC...



    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    the best part is if they moved the new unit to the right side of the old pad it would prob be straight

    Unbelievable. Did the H.O. install it himself?

    That was installed by someone who takes no pride in their work. But what is the code violation? I don't recall any codes addressing crooked piping.

    After looking at the picture again, sliding the unit over to the right would have probably made it straight or a lot less obvious.

    The crooked piping isn't the code violation, the penetration into the building is not "substantially rodent proof". I'm pretty sure that line is in the IMC somewhere, I'll have to look it up later.

    The disconnect (and being the OLD on at that) can't be behind the unit. THAT is against code.

    Not too mention DRINKING ON THE JOB!

    Because there is no way a sober person installed that cover like that and though it LOOKED good!



    Mark, you got to LOVE the night and day difference in the installs!

    Your install: TRANE

    Their install: GOODMAN

    Your Install: Nice and neat, all new electrical, whip, disconnect, etc and the straight line set cover.

    Their Install: GOODMAN (got to list that one TWICE), old disconnect, etc... and that line set cover... which is slanted for some odd reason.
