    Beautiful work as always.
    Did you push the furnace back or cut that wooden wall? The space looks wider where the old furnace sat.

    It’s a right of passage,.... the person(s) who installed that simplistic furnace and ductwork are probably long retired? I’m sure they had some story’s and jokes to tell among themselves while doing the install and start up.

    Nice clean install on your part, I’m sure the OD section will be professional grade also.

    That's the way the wall was, I didn't make the hole bigger.

    Are we looking at the old and the new from opposite directions?

    I turned it around since I didn't need the chimney.

    Thanks.
    The main reason I asked is that I was kinda disoriented looking at the pics. I couldn't even tell if it was the same location, lol.
    That is a very nice looking install.

    If you felt like mailing the badge off the furnace cover, I would reimburse you postage costs!

    Nice looking install!

    If it's there when I go back tomorrow I'll take it off for you (I left the doors outside).

    Always love to see an oil furnace bite the dust! Especially when the replacement install is a work of art.

    What model furnace? Our owner beat on the head of the sales manager at the Rheem supply house and we're getting R98s for a song. About what an American Standard 1 stage constant torque costs us. So far all have gone out with 1 of the Econet controls with it so it beautifully modulates!

    It's a U98V. When I pull oil furnaces out I try to get my customers to go with mods, less complaints.
