    Just finished a changeout that took over a week, due to the side-jobhack who told the homeowner he had been to school and presently worked for a hvac contractor. FYI duct tape doesn't hold flex to metal pipes or boots for very long. And a 12X8 duct shouldn't feed .......oh never mind.
    Never the less the homeowner is tickled pink with the air flow and quietness of their new 6 ton Envision. Their top of the line equiptment is now matched by good air flow and heat transfer.

    I've installed a top notch ground loop system and had attached it to Bard Equiptment and the only thing the customer had to say was that it sounded like a freight train was in the basement. Also they were extremely unhappy with the supposed energy savings that was supposed to pay them back.

    Soooooo. good WaterFurnace equiptment is the only way to go.
