I think because we pros have seen so many jobs like that is the main reason we get a bug up our asses when a DIYer says he is going to install a furnace him self.
Then it is up to us to explain to the next HO that the job has to be ripped out and why it cost so much to fix it. Of course that makes us the bad guys then.
That is one reason I am trying to help out here. The biggest concern I have is some poor guy thinking he can just grad a used furnace from someplace and gas it up and put the electricity to and he thinks he's good to go.
Used furnaces are an accident waiting to happen if they aren't safety checked by a knowledgeable person.
Safety first always.
