    Pics of install - let the comments fly

    Okay, here are some pics of the new equipment and a few of the old also. Please post your comments, questions and criticisms. Let me know if any specific or close up shops are needed and I'll try to post.

    Trane XR14 HP w/ 90% XT furnace.

    Old inside


    Old outside. I think I had a good 5 years left in this unit.


    A few shots of the new inside equipment.






    A few of the outside unit.




    That little copper tube coming out the bottom there is the condensate drain.

    I don't know. If so, I wasn't made aware of it. Sometime next week they are supposed to come back out and see how things are going. I will ask them if the measurement was taken and if so what it was.

    I saw them messing with a filter, but they never actually showed me exactly where it went. I'm going to assume it's behind the furnace door with the knobs on it. I guess I need to check on that, huh. lol

    It's pretty but looking I see the condenser is sitting directly in front of the disconnect and that's a no-no. And I just don't like the A/C condensate and the furnace condensate tied into the same line where backflow can be possible. It's pretty though and I like the furnace and condenser pad install.

    Is there a reason the disconnect shouldn't be directly behind the unit?

    My concern about the drain line was that it empties right at the foundation of the house and also right at the pad.

    Thanks for the complement on the pad. I actually did most of that the day before they came. The old unit had sunk down some, so I needed to get it raised up some. I laid 3 sides and left them room to remove the old unit. Then finished it up while they were doing some inside work.

    I also noticed they used electrical tape to wrap the pipes outside. I assume there was a better way to do that. That tape won't last long outside.

    The gas line needs better support.

    The Yowza was for the old stuff.

    It was a good investment.

    How come the combustion air intake doesn't terminate outside?
    General public's attitude towards our energy predicament: "I reject the reality of finite resource depletion and substitute it with my own; energy is infinite, we just need an alternative storage medium to run the cars on. The economy can grow indefinitely - we just need to "green" everything! Technology is energy! Peak what?"

    Is the pipe in this photo for the furnace exhaust?

    Sometimes installers use electrical tape outside when zip ties would be better. You could always get some black zip ties at a hardware store down the road if the electrical tape goes bad.

    All things considered, I think it looks pretty good for the most part... There's a difference between looks and performance, as well as code.

    I don't know. I had asked them before the install if there was going to be an air intake from the outside and they said it was not needed in a garage.

    The city has not inspected it yet. I assume if it's not up to code they will let the installing company know.
