    that short side looks like 2-3" from the picture angle. either way his service guy is going to be very pissed at him, no way to get a nutdriver in there!!

    Is that for the "A" jpg or "B" jpg?
    Also what do you think about the different approaches on the exterior of the houses?

    No traps on coil

    Why don't guys trap drains and terminations are eye sores. Everything else looks good. oh! The black drain pipe is for farmers, not pros. Use PVC.
    Do it right the first time.

    To stay above snowlevel and not recirculate exhaust.

    personaly i think the wall of pride is in order for this install

    some persanal preferances i would like to see but that should not take away the craftmanship and care this guy seems to have put into this job

    you made a good choice and your installer shows he cares and has class

    JMHO

    JMHO, I don't think the precived "messy" work on B is enough to nit pick about. It's just prefrence on procedure.

    I think the the tight install of condenser "a" is bad enough to offset the so called faults of "b"

    The build up on that cond from being in a corner is going to be horrendous.

    We've all seen the build up of dust and dirt on the condenser is always thickest on the sections closest to walls.

    Rheem rep once told me a customer can clean the cond by simply removing the cond fan and spray from inside,
    My only questions is where does all the grass clippings go even if a HO does that. There is no way to flush the grass and leaves from inside the skins.

    You get a small compost pile and the decomposition of the compost matter will rot the condenser.

    LOL, Yeah, I agree with you.. no need for the pipe to go that high! If they do get that much snow, then the intake needs to be brought up.

    In "B" the one going to Mars was to avoid the output or input (not sure which) hitting people on the walkway. I was told by my guy that that is not a great idea and not the way Rheem recommends installation as the flue gas may go up the wall and then be carried down again.

    Now with "global warming" we (Toronto) can have very little snow as we did two years ago or a few feet in accumulation as we did this year....who knows these days-but the pipe height must allow for the snow

    here seven foot is required for a walk way so not to exhaust on people walking by. Dripping is ok LOL

    both pipes should be ran at the same level as for equal pressure zone
