    Goodman is just as good as some of the other brands out to day.
    It's the install that makes the difference in how the system works.

    Metal is amazing as always. Those turning veins are great, keep posting your installs! I take it you still have to go back and clean up the rest, drain, electrical, ext.

    That sheet metal is a piece of art. Nicely done.

    I'm impressed by the turning vanes in a resi furnace.
    It looks like you have a ton of room why not make that furnace happier and put it up on a base can?
    The wiring hanging lose and the drain ran in hose across the floor are worthy of the Goodman name.

    My Electrician doesn't feel the same about working Saturdays as I do, so I temporary wired it. When he has me install the new a/c I'll also fix the ugly supply ducting (it's a 60,000 btu so it doesn't need a base can not to mention with the old a/c coil only one inch above my blend) The drain is just out of the picture and they didn't want the pump, as for the hose across the floor, my bad .

    What's in the corners where you did your 1/2" hem out?

    I don't like the corners open because they look bad, harder to seal and always seem to get bent. In order to make them like shown in one piece would be a pita so I just bend the 1/2 lip out in the cheek bender after I put the pieces together, then I make 1 1/2 piece as long as the cheek plus the hem on both throat and heel bend over 1/2" slide it over the lip and into the hems cinch them tight and fold the rest into the fitting and cut the radii. If you look close you can see the folded in pieces. I thought you would catch the corners, I wasn't showing the picture for the turning vanes.

    Pretty sure I understand what you're saying. I just do the hem out and put 1/2" wide 1/8" thick foam tape on it. Seals up well. I typically only do a 1/2" hem out where my plenum sits on my cased coil. Most everything else is a fold in.

    I've seen a turning vanes once in resi furnace. I thought it was a hidden electronic air cleaner and I was about to be shocked.

    Nice tin work! I really wish we had quality duct guys in my area. It's hard to find quality work like that.

    I live in BillG's neck of the woods and for some reason 99% of residential installs around here are drained this way. I couldn't tell you why.

    Very true, in the Milwaukee area more chances than not you're going to get hosed.

    Nice sheet metal but I'm not sure there is any realized improvement for air flow on that system warranting that cost...

    Question? Is it just an optical illusion that that furance is close to that wall and service for the furnace would been better if it had just been turned around to the center of the room?

    No puky on those s & drives?

    It's plenty far from the wall, no way would I put puky on my jobs, silicone only. I love doing sheet metal work so it's worth it to me, plus the way I look at it is that you only have around 5 tenths of a inch of water column to work with, you eat up 3 tenths of that with the A/C and filter so any improvement helps.
