    As long as your the one signing the check you should be called The Boss.

    Stop the job for 72 hours until you can get an independent review on what’s designed and what’s there.

    It’s your money.

    If you are having the attic foamed... that means the foam is on the underside of the roof...
    And you will need a condensing furnace... vents through PVC pipe, not through a metal pipe.
    The furnace now installed is NOT a condensing furnace... so it will NOT work with a foamed underside of the roof.

    Advise: make a list of all the issues... you are gonna need it...

    Everything up there is going to be covered in FOAM!

    The guys spraying the foam are completely covered in Tyvek suits with respirators, and full face masks. So there saying there going to pull the flex away while they foam? BS
    All that should come out as well as the furnace and coil.

    Just my opinion: If the underside of the roof is gonna be foamed...
    This should be done BEFORE the HVAC is put in... or the HVAC equipment should be covered with a droppie... keep the splatter off it.

    Is it just me, or the picture? That furnace looks big, If it's a 75,000 she could always convert this space into a sauna in the future.

    Someone said 26K...

    However I think it is 40K...

    Regardless... sometimes we have to determine the furnace size by the AC capacity...
    And we have found that a PSC (yeah, I know, they are not available anymore) 3 ton drive... usually will not handle sloppy 3 tons of ductwork. We always use a 4 ton drive with 3 ton AC... which means a larger furnace... which means using a VS furnace with 2 stages... most of the time the heat never gets out of low stage.

    But then... we are in a primary AC market... so AC performance takes front row, and heat performance is second row...
    Houston is more that than we are.

    Here it is again... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...89-qiMf6yEE1Zs

    26K input.... according to current web-site 9 tap ECM motor.

    The coil says it’s rated from 18,000 - 36,000 BTU according to Trane web-site, not a straight 3 ton.
