Rheem to 95% Variable 2 stage American Standard
This Rheem 90% furnace is 30 plus years old and very tired, my customer knows its a money pit and wants an upgrade.
Even though you can not see the difference in the size the older furnace was 3″ wider and 6″ shorter, in my opinion to utilize the existing electronic air cleaner better they should have tried to matched up to it. Instead they overhung the air cleaner. Fortunately the American Standard 95% variable 2 stage matched up perfectly. I still had to make a few transitions to adapt to the existing supply air.
We have been out on several occasions for various reasons for this customer, one of which was their Navien Cr-210a installed by another company had issues. One of those issues was the venting.
As you can see above there was way to much thought going into installing the venting for the Navien. Too many elbows can cause excessive restriction in the venting, resulting in lockouts as well as overheating.
After a few changes in the venting I was able to eliminate 4 90 degree elbows. Now the Navien can breath a little easier.
