    Goodman SSZ14 heat pump w/ some Slim-Duct.

    Had to use some slim-duct on this one as the lineset went down the wall 20+ feet.

    Here are a couple of outdoor and indoor pics, respectively.

    He will get a full 14 SEER, 12 EER and 8.5 HSPF out of this add-on. Should see some decent savings over his existing 80% builder's grade Bryant furnace.

    Interesting. That an emergency drain pan setup around the supply transition? Nice slim duct. Our salesmen, especially the ones whose name appear on the sign, like downspout instead. Cheaper!

    Funny thing is, that drain pan serves no purpose other than to be panning. This home was built a year ago and I am thinking they probably had a bunch of these just laying around to "patch" up their supply drops. It isn't sealed in any way, the supply drop just drops right down the center with a little silicone.

    I hear ya on the cost of the downspout vs. slimduct. He paid a little extra so we gave him the good stuff.

    My local would fail the outlet for not being a GFI.

    Everything does look superb.
    The TXV tubing looks wonderfull. I wish I could make mine look that good.

    That thing was already there and that IS not what it is, please read previous post.


    Again, read the whole story, this was a heat pump add-on, that builder's grade Bryant is junk. Read, read, read, then formulate your response, it is misplaced.

    Code requires it. Read through my other jobs here on the WOP and you will see I think it's nonsense as well.

    i agree about the trap! with a condensate pump if you put the drain line all the way down it will sit in the water and act as a trap. wouldnt that pass as the trap and not have to use the p-trap???geeeeez dang inspectors. and shoot its even positive pressure.

    Seaton - I thought the install overall looked pretty sharp. I just had one question. Why did you go from hard pipe to flex back to hard pipe on the gas? Why not just hard pipe 100%?
    If your not getting the results you desire then change. People change from either desperation or inspiration.

    We didn't really mess with the gas piping too much other than using the full length of the existing flex. It was coiled up before. Didn't make sense to rework the whole thing since we didn't change anything on it.
