Customer Question

On Goodman AVPTC48D14 Air Handler Downflow Application,
is it necessary to install a "Downflow Kit" that is not supplied with the Air Handler, to the drain pan? or is this new design with a condensation pump hooked up to it enough? Unsure if installer is correct in saying the DFK-D is optional? Using pump is all that is needed.

According to the manual on this unit (page 4, 6.3) the DFK is required on downflow installations. See manual.
