    XV95/XL16i Install Pics

    Everyone's favorite threads, let the comments fly!

    Furnace #1...all of the supply duct work is new on this one, and the return drop is new as well.

    Furnace #2...the 10" return line was added, all other duct work is older.

    Outdoor units... I know there will be comments about the clearances. Unfortunately the way the house sits on the lot, there were no other options. (And they are within Trane's clearance guidelines.)

    Second furnace, looks like flue pipes may slope down where they cross under duct. May be optical illusion.
    Bypass should not tap into supply at transition angle.
    Looks like the air is restricted at furnace on the second.one. Where the back of the plenum angles front.
    Doesn't look like 30" between units for service.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Yeah, it's the angle I took the picture -- they don't actually slope down.

    What's the effect of tapping into it like that?

    Can you explain?

    Overall what do you think of the install?

    Thanks for the comments!

    Overall. It looks ok.

    The transition at teh back of the furnace angles in, decreasing the size of the opening. Making it harder for the blower to move the air.
    Tends to make VS blowers work harder, and use more elctric.
    Could also cause air flow issues over the HX of the furnace.

    The humidifier tap at that point may rob that supply trunk of air.

    It may be misleading from the pic, or I might be misunderstanding... At the top of furnace #2 the transition angles outward in all four directions, sort of like a funnel. Is that bad?

    I don't see the tell-tale signs of pvc cleaner being used in your flue and condensate line connections. Its especially important to make sure you have used it on the flue pipe or the slightly acidic nature of the exhaust will lead to failure at the joints.
