    Carrier/Bryant

    We install Carrier & Bryant furnace everyday, for home warranty and our regular customers, and that installation view of cutting out the knock out is wrong.

    If the furnace is racked, or vent pipe doesn't secure inside the furnace it's wrong no excuses.

    I service these units and if I have a problem with the door or I see that we did something like this we would find out why it was done. Not a good practice.

    To me, it would make no diff as long as the hole was cut perfectly appearing to be round and 1/4" clearance etc. I mean you could get hacked as bad as the attached photo!

    I've seen some stupid stuff, but the "attic package unit" from jbm1000 takes the award. Where did you find that one?

    We walked in for a change out one day, and found Huggies box for a plenum. With lots of duct tape. Wish I had a picture of that one.

    Thanks
    Something ain't right about that pic. Payne, Carrier Furnaces have a thumb screw at the top and that sticker is upside down. And there aren't any makeup air louvers in the door. It seems like the door is upside down.
    If the knockout didn't line up with the flue pipe then something is installed wrong. JMO.



    Is this a downflow furnace?

    I repair air conditioners to keep people cool when it's 110+ degrees outside.
    I repair heaters so people don't freeze to death.
    I shut down furnaces that are unsafe to operate.
    Make fun of my profession, but dang it, I save lives.

    We're awl pawthetic and kweepy and can't get giwrls. That's why we fight wobots.

    All downflow furnaces 80% in Bryant Carrier and Payne requires B-Vent. Yes there was a knockout on that side now just a bigger knockout and the screw is at bottom of door and yes it is a pain in the a$$ at times to put the door back on but maybe not now with that size of a hole. Your contractor will probably replace door if you explain to him what the deal is I would not want that in my house after the money I paid for it. Just don't get irrate with contractor when you approach him about it.
