    Opinions? Roasts? Think we did a fair job of it.

    Is that Romex going down to the plug that you put in for your condensate pump? I would have used alumaflex. Looks pretty good I like your sheet metal work. Good choice 4 inch filter much less static pressure drop through the system period a 1-inch filter has tremendous pressure drop through it

    Do you have the multi size tubing Bender? Meet you there sweet from Johnstone Supply that's where I got mine. It's really helps on running line sets goes all the way to inch and an eighth if you don't have one you might want to get one it really can make it do some pretty sweet work with line sets

    Nice, neat, clean looking install. I’d get rid of the romex and use conduit. Nice overflow pan.

    Very clean, nice. I would have conduit the romex as well, just makes for a cleaner install. But overall, nice clean job.

    I like it, my only comment is to use a slightly larger Aux Pan, that way the Condensate Pump could fit down into the pan.

    Ooo...that's a biggun'. I assume to drive the AC? Or, do they need that much heat, too? Big Berthas need 2 sides or a side and a bottom return.

    The house "looks" clean and well kept. Based on that I'd bet they take an interest in good insulation, too. So, why didnt you run the intake outside?

    You are correct, it was to drive the AC, Has an XP20 with it. We didn't takes the intake outside because this room is in the middle of the house, in a basement with a finished ceiling, the customer didn't want to pay for to get drywall fixed so we could run it.

    We normally don't put our romex in conduit if its in a mechanical room, if it was living space we would use MC cable or metal conduit.

    I wish I had made a larger drain pan to accommodate the pump, but it was what I had with me so we made it work.

    Be nice to have a 6" riser box under the furnace so all 20x25 of that media cleaner gets air through it. Personally I like outside air for combustion but I seem to be in the minority these days.

    Nice workmanship
