Ruud achiever 90 plus furnace-water leaks from the drain pipe


This furnace should condense, as long as it goes into the drain. If it is leaking inside the furnace, there may be a seal that needs replacing in either the pvc drain pipe or concentric drain trap needs resealed.

Does my furnace require outside air?


I'm surprised the building inspector allowed the condensing furnace you described draw combustion air from the garage !! I'm not familiar with any manufacturer that recommends that as normal practice. Virtuall ALL two pipe condensing furnaces require both pvc pipes to be terminated OUTSIDE the structure with specific heights and distances apart. There is also a limit to the length of both the flu and the combustion air piping and each 90 degree pvc elbow adds the resistance equivalant of roughly 10' of straight pipe. If re-routing is required, you have to bear in mind the direction of 'fall' in the piping usually goes back towards the furnace and remember two 45's may give you a greater variance of change in the piping and still be equal to the equivalant of one 90.

Personally, I would never suggest terminating the fresh air (combustion air) intake between floors of a structure.

Dont have a book to tell me how to install heat exhaust pvc or tin


most furnaces require 4 inch vent pipe to be installed ... you can use pvc as long as it is rated for the temperature... there should be an obvious hole in the furnace where the enducer draft motor pushes the exhaust... if this is a upflow unit in the closet you will need to connect to the bell housing of the exhaust and start running your pipe up and out side .you will need double wall pipe rated for heat and or rated pvc if installing pvc... once outside make sure if on rood you have a roof jack for pipe to go through and a collar around pipe to keep water from running down and then a cap on pipe ....if it is a horizontal unit done the same way except your already in attic and don't have a as far to go it can run vertical and horizontal try to minimize your 90 degree turns and is best to keep it angled to prevent moisture from buiding up in pipe...

Panasonic CS/CU-A242KR Air conditioner leaking water


OK lets see what we can help you with here. The condensate drain is clogged. There are a couple of ways to clear this clog so lets give it a try. If you know where the drain for the a/c is located outside (usually by the outside condenser unit) it will be a pipe that is just sticking out of the side of the house, if you find it take a wet/dry vac and place it on this pipe and turn the vacuum on and make a seal with your hand this should unclog the drain. If you don't find this pipe outside the house then go to the furnace and you will see at the bottom of the furnace a pipe (PVC) white, this is the drain for the unit inside. Take the wet/dry vac and have it at the ready in the event the clog is further down the line than at the furnace itself now the fittings on this pipe should not be glued together due to the ability to access for this very purpose. Take the pipe apart at one of the fittings and place the wet/dry vac on the end of the pipe towards the furnace and using your hand make a seal and evacuate the line. Do this to both sides since you don't know where the blockage is. If you are unable to separate the pipe at any fitting you will need to cut the pipe and at the spot of the cut you will need to repair it with a sleeve. Remember that the drain pipe is plastic and is made of pvc so you can get a repair coupling from any home improvement store for this repair.
Hope this helped you some

My furnace is leaking water when the heat is running


You probably have a 90+% efficient furnace. They produce condensation. Does it have PVC vent pipes? If so there is a drain tube for condensation.

Comfort 92 Gas heater Exhaust


the slope is downwards to furnace.The slope isnt for the moisture it is a rise for the flue gas to go outside.The intake is usually connected to the furnace to use outside air for the combustion but it does not have to be.if it isnt an option to take the pipe apart to glue it all up you can seal the water leaks with silicon.anymore questions hillbuck29@aol.com

Condensation Leaking through unit


This may be caused by an un level unit, or the A-coil itself may be un level did you move it when you replaced the fan motor? The second thing to check is the fitting at the condensate drain pan to make sure the weld has not broken or the fitting has not been stressed or bent and have a small crack.

Hope this helps Ya
