    Unhappy Need Advice Questionable Install -- PICS Included

    I had a 'pro' install 2 new hvac systems for me a couple of days ago and I am unsure of his work. First off, he quoted me a Armstrong unit and I got a Concord. Are these comparable units? Second can you tell the size from the model number? Model= CG80TB075D12A-1A. Finally, I really don't feel much air movement from the vents; however, when I go up in the attic to look at the unit, I feel quiet a bit of cool air coming from the seam between the air handler and the coil. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

    I would call the guy back and insist that it’s done right. If a unit other than what was quoted was installed, you didn't get what you paid for.

    The air handler/duct work shouldn't be leaking like that.

    Everything around the air handler should be sealed with UL 181 approved material like mastic tape or mastic caulk or old fashioned mastic and tape. At the very least some clear silicone. I don't know anything about concord so I can't comment on the equivilence to Armstrong. Judging by your model number I would say it's and 80% furnace at 75,000 btu/h input. The model number also resembles a Lennox built model number like Armstrong would use, so they could be the same unit with a different name on them. Someone more familiar with Concord equipment will have to fill in the blanks on that.

    Ask him why you didn't get what you paid for and also ask him why are you losing cold air through your ducts, if he couldn't get the unit that he quoted you on he should have explained himself, for your sake I hope he did a good install, in time you'll know.

    Good Luck

    Concord is the builder line of Armstrong. Solid furnace, just a cheaper model than the G1N Tech 80 unit. Costs the dealer $$$ less too.

    All from the same animal ut with differrent supoprt and warranties....

    An example would be Lennox L series cost $$$$ the same system as an Armstrong/Concord cost less but does not have the technical support or warranties the Lennox does.

    Contractor probably paid a little less for it. Ask him to explain it to you.

    all i can say is whatever type of equiptment was on that contract when you signed it you should of received unless otherwise told by the contracter prior to installation and both parties agreed revised contract or something. and no air should be leaking at all in the attic make them seal it. Get a INSPECTION. model numbers do tell what the unit is in most cases but just because u had that b4 doesnt mean its right for u now did these people do a load calc or anything is this the original ductwork oh man i have so many questions

    Answers.

    Original duct work, this was a changeout. I had 6 different companies provide quotes. This contractor was not the cheapest and had the best reviews from realatives. None of the 6 did any calculations, just looked and quoted.
