    Nice to see I'm not the only one replaceing the old lowboys. I'm in Mich and we have a ton of them up here. God but they can have some heavy heatexchangers in don't they? I like the tarp. I like to keep things as clean as I can. Keeps me cleaner in the long run and I have to clean any way. Shine those pittsburg guys on this isn't a glory palace I think S-lock and screws are good enough. I have hand bent up pitts before and will if the job will demand it but, you know, most times people don't even care. Love the air cleaner transsitions. Keep it real in Indianapolis.

    You guys should buy a roller baldy.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    Nice job, I dont know how you guys do tin work. I have a hard time putting smoke pipe together. I'd rather do a boiler than a furnace anyday. Do you make your tansitions on the job. I would have to have them made for me.

    pittsburgs are east to make with a brake, i just bend over 1.5 inchs on the brake and seem it down with hand seamers and then take a drive bar i have a 24 inch one and bend 1 inch back, you will have a little extra over hang but i just trim off a 1/4 inch and it looks pretty good not as tight as the machine but better than screws

    I would have mounted the EAC vertically and changed the return drop. Might be difficult for the ho to change the filter with the pvc in the way. Around here we have to use 3/4in pvc.

    Looks nice though!

    loonie

    Have always been impressed with your crews (on the job metal). Those furnaces are quiet. Installed one 10 yrs. ago and haven't had the first call except pm service. Like the furnace feet too, are those pump-ups? By the way nice job as always.
