    Didn't know that. Thanks... Even good black zip ties? I guess I could see good electrical tape holding up well.

    As for the disconnect box, if it passes inspection, great, If not, it doesn't seem that big of a deal to move it to where it needs to be.

    Concerning the condensate drain freezing during winter, what is the usual solution to this problem? My last furnace was an 80, so I have not dealt with this before.

    Any other issues I need to bring to their attention?

    Thanks.

    1-Gas supported to appliance.....
    2-condensate breather for proper pressure and flow..
    3-is that armour flex joining the evap drain and furnace condensate?
    4-I perfer to put in-take outside for better efficiency...
    5-clean the electrical wires up...{from the old t-stat wires join the new}
    6-the dryer vent is to close to the condenser for my liking....nothing like plugging the condenser up with lint....
    thats just to name a few things......

    those IDIOTS used armour flex to keep the floor from getting wet when the drain sweats. furnaces have positive pressure drains, therefore p-traps are not needed. they do need to be capped.

    the Dude stated in an earlier post that the furnace drain and the a/c drain need to be seperate, He's 100% right.

    We don't do a lot of furnaces,the only thing I'd change is the way each return enters the furnace.May not be an issue ,but lower static would be gained,but may not be needed,can't tell from here.

    Have the static checked,is the best advice .

    Or at least an air gap after the condensate trap. Surprised no one has focused on that as it's a safety hazard. It's a direct connection between the heat exchanger and the supply air.

    If it wasn't on a positive pressure drain, and ran further then it does, it would be a concern.

    So it's not really a concern?

    And what is this armour flex they speak of? Is that the black pipe insulation on the trap?

    Thanks.

    Is that a garden hose next to the condenser?

    Is that writing on the insulation covering the return air? OMG!!

    O so we can we chalk that up as a good thing about the install?
