When will they learn? Furnace install.

I would like ro re-direct this post to all prospective Buyers of Homes in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, NM.  DO NOT WAIVE THE FULL HOME INSPECTION.  Sellers do not always disclose the truth about the property  

When will they learn? Furnace install.

I know we have all seen this before. But we should not have seen it at all.

There are so many short cuts made by the mechanical installers it's kinda getting old hat.

In this inspection last night I found the flex line running through the furnace body to the unitrol.

This is not to code and this is a safety hazard as well.

Illegal hook up to furnace.

Then to add insult to a already bad install.

No drip leg or cut off close enough.

There is no drip leg and the gas cutoff is located too close to the wall to operate freely.

All I can do is write this up and shake my head.

Have a good night everyone.
