    why not get the frunace a little higher off the floor, doesn't look like there was a space issue?

    from the pic, is the side of ODU toward gas meter going to be below grade


    all in all looks good
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    No need to get the furnace any higher. Dry basement. Its actually all finished now into a bar with a pool table, tile floors, a bathroom, etc.
    Yard is now landscaped and the cement pad I built is above grade more than it needed to be. The pictures are before the homes was even done.

    refrigerant piping is nice, drier will be a rust ball in a few years being outside, and there could be a better fitting for the return or some turning vanes in there and I dont like the roll strap on the pvc, I like a strap that is made for it like a j hook or a clevis hanger or a autogrip hanger or snap rod hangers or a trapeze and strut clamps, I know roll strap is easy, just one of my pet peeves. I dont even have a roll on my truck I hate that stuff. Also do you guys always wrap the duct when its in conditioned space? If finished basement I dont think its necessary, not that it will hurt anything. Also The electric would have look alot better with hard conduit, that was probably the electricians, I bought 50' of conduit today for $9, cheaper to buy conduit and wire than it is to use flex and it looks a whole lot better.

    From the looks of it, I bet the electrician would have used Romex. I think our friendly HVAC installer used the MC cable?

    If you use hard conduit that is all good, but then you need to stock THHN - no romex in conduit!

    They make clear primer for PVC. If inspectors did not require the purple so they could see that primer was used then I did not use the purple primer. Some installers are good at applying the purple primer. Some installers are complete slobs and get it all over the place.
    Signature on hold. Trying to find a real Jefferson quote I like. Others here have bogus Jefferson quotes too.

    Looks good, the only thing i dont like in that picture is that condensate pump discharge line appears to be going up over the electrical panel. Also don't like seeing the condensate pump discharge being ziptied to that armorflex conduit, as that flex conduit isnt water tight. Otherwise, it looks great!
