    Here's the before pics. The furnace had a bad heat exchanger. He went with a whole changeout. Its a 4 ton system & the copper was only 3/4.

    Dang, I just realized I posted this in the wall of shame instead of pride. Heck some of yall might think its in the right place. Oh well. here's the replacement. & if any of you mods wanna move it, feel free.







    Any of yall have one of these lights? they can really light up an attic.

    Looks pretty good,but man that flex is kinda overwhelming.
    There are three signs of old age.
    The first is your loss of memory,
    the other two I forget.

    Man that flex is horrible. Its so dryrotted that it tears when you pull it. I strongly encouraged him to replace that. Almost to the point of begging. lol He didnt want to spend the money. I did put some vinyl straps to kinda straighten out some of it.

    But I'm with ya, it needs a major overhaul on the ductwork.

    Thats a Ruud Zephyr, builders model.
    Good, solid machine though.
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    I bought it at Home Depot. It doesnt have a cord with it. So you'll need a extention cord just for the light. Once its powered, you can plug cords into it for power. Kinda cool.

    Nice install, however, I do have a couple questions. Why was a 5inch double wall used all the way to the furnace? And the second, why didnt you run the secondary to the coil instead of the pan??

    I'm not a fan of flex, but you cleaned that up nicely.
    Is the old lineset still on the inside wall? I am assuming the old one ran inside the wall?

    You should have put this in the wall of pride, the old stuff belongs here but the new install looks good.

    As far as the vent goes, he must have read the instructions. If it's to be increased (from 3-5", then it's to be done at the outlet of the furnace). I cant see what size it is but 125-150k require 5" vent.

    Good looking job.
