    Toughest Furnace for Routine Maintenance

    What's your most unfavorite gas forced air furnace to perform routine maintenance on? You know the feeling you get when you go to a house and set your tool bag down and dread the thought of doing any maintenance to the unit Tis' the season...

    The ones they have to dig a hole for in the crawl space for the furnace so it will fit on its side in the crawl space.

    LMAO!!! I remember a crawl in Indy where they installed an upflow Pulse when it should have been a horizontal. They dug a hole and put the furnace in the uplow position... INGENIOUS and P'O'D me!

    Anything in a H.U.D. development , aka ghetto , urban development.
    I was burning the roaches away from the unit with my b tank and the journeyman i was working with told me to stop , it may embarras the HO. i Asked him who he thought fed them.
    That was 20 years ago , and i will never work on one again.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.
