    (2) Drainpipe issues.

    (3) All the wires in front of the inside unit

    (4) No outisde kill switch

    Anything else that is glaring and necessary on the install end?
    Your heat pump should be elevated, above average snow level for your area.
    I can't believe the trap on the drain line hasn't caused you water issues yet, need to get that corrected fast.

    Okay, I'll add those to the list. I hope he understands when I say "trap on the drainline", cuz I couldn't explain it to him! :-)

    Alright, I'm pretty sure there is mortar around the copper piping...which could be why they decided to just use what was there.

    OH believe me, I don't. Even I looked at the snarl of lines outside and inside (and crimped pipe) and said....there is something wrong!

    1= condensate trap ( preferably an easy trap with a flaot switch)
    2= all lines ran from infront of the unit so the blower can be serviced
    3= condensated pump power wire is ran through a drain hole in the coil inclosure and should be ran to a plug
    4= power disconnect needs to be installed outside for the condenser
    5= refrigerant lines should be increased to 7/8 3/8 but he probably will say they are fine

    the duct issues you may have as beenthere said you may have to learn to deal with. Static tests should be done but chances are he wont
