New cased A-coil and furnace (alignment)

Re: New cased A-coil and furnace (alignment)

Hi,

I recently had a contractor replace my old Carrier
furnace, etc with lo-end Heil eqpt.

The cased A-coil unit sits slightly akilter on the furnace.
It is flush with the furnace on one side and varies
up to 1/4 " over-the-edge of the furnace in back and
on the other side.

How do the cased A-coil units fit onto the furnace? Are
they supposed to align perfectly?

I've paid the contractor (evidently a mistake on my part,
should've held back something), and am wondering if
this constitutes poor workmanship that might justify
a BBB complaint. As near as I can tell, they didn't do a
very good job except on the plenum, which *looks* good, but
that might be the reason the A-coil doesn't align.

Any/all suggestions/info much appreciated.

Cheers,
Puddin'

Sometimes, the case may be larger than the furnace itself, and if it's only hanging over by 1/4 of an inch, I won't worry about it.

Are you able to post pictures for us on a photo host site?

Mine is flush with the furnace, when i put it together the fit was close to perfect. Is the coil made by heil? If you dont feel air coming out of the seam I wouldnt worry about it. The flange is probably an inch wide so it is sitting on 3/4 of an inch

I should've mentioned that it is a matching Heil cased coil unit.

I fear my dig. camera is not up to pictures, but I can explain
in a bit more detail.

Viewing from the front, the coil unit is flush on the left side.
Extends about 1/4 " over the furnace edge on the right. On the
front and back, one corner is flush and the other is 1/4" off.

I goofed, should've stood over 'em with a magnifying glass
the whole time instead of walkin' the dawg, doing little
exercises (daily routine).

Thanks,
Puddin'

It's probably as good as can be. I don't see any valid complaint in what you described.
