    When I notice a client has a guitar or a piano, I always recommend they pump the exhaust of gas appliances into conditioned spaces during the dry winter months to maintain optimum humidity and improve the tone of their instruments... .

    I think I have to concede

    The guy that did yours actually had to take the time to fabricate ducting.... my knucklehead just had to stretch out a slinky hose.

    How 'bout a runner up for garage installations. They replaced an electric wh with a gas one. What's not shown are the four 90 degree elbows in the attic. In the last photo the pully is slowly grinding a hole in the vent. Seller refused to fix because "it passed city inspection". I know none of you have ever heard that...
