Is there a connection between a warm floor and a water heater?

Our water heater is raised in the corner of our garage. The room on the other side of the wall with the water heater has a warm floor. Is this normal?

There is water in the living room floor after the unit runs even for a short time. Where do you locate the stopped up drain. Where would I begin my search?


If your furnace is in the closet or laundry room, the coil that's leaking is either(1) on the top of the furnace if your ductwork is in the ceiling,(2) on the bottom of the furnace if your ductwork is in the floor. The drain that may be stopped up stubs out of the bottom left or right hand corner of the coil box. Sometimes you can flush it out with water but the best way is to find the end of the drain and get a shop vac and stick the shop vac hose on the drain, seal it real good and try pulling the junk out of your drain. Your drain may drain outside somewhere on maybe to a floor drain.

Fills with water, doesn't evaporate. Leaks. HAIER HPR09XC7


There is nothing to resolve. Your humidifier is working properly.

A humidifier works by condensing water out of air. This is the job of the cold coil, which you have found to have water dripping off. The Warm coil is not intended to re-evaporate the water, as this would just bring the relative humidity back to the origanal high level, rather, the warm coil is used to re-warm the air, going back into the room so the room does not get too cold. It is normal to have to empty the bucket and restart the process on a periodic basis.

Carpet wet under window air con.


The air conditioner needs to be "tilted" or "pitched" to the rear. By this I mean the back (outside) should be slightly lower than the front (inside). This will allow the water to run toward the back of the unit, and drip on the ground instead of inside the house - on the floor. The A/C unit must not be level or tilted into the room (front even with or lower than the rear).

This water is the result of condensation that is created when the warm room air is drawn through the much cooler coil & fins inside the unit and is completely normal. The more humid the air inside is, the more condensation will form, and drain away.

Good luck!

My unit dripps from the tubing, front fans and back pannel


Usually there should be a drain pipe connected to the back end of the unit and long enough to remove the water from the room to a suitable drain point. You should see that this is installed. If so, then check that the existing drainage outlet is not blocked. You should also make sure that all filters are clean.

Heater smell when AC comes on...


The fan that blows the air blows through the heater coils before it blows through the A/C.As long as the heater doesn't come on, there is not much that can be done. ZCooking the attic room will be a problem because it is the heat rises thing, and on top(literally) of it all, the roof is radiating heat.

Heater not heating at the right temperature?


Sir,

Your heater is only a 21K BTU heater. It is not meant to heat a whole house. We don't know how big you house is, however a 21K heater will not heat 4 or 5 rooms. The best you could expect out of a Rinnai 556 would be to heat a couple of rooms that are next to each other. You will never be able to heat rooms in your house that have doors or are down the hall a ways.

Good luck,

no easy fix . your water heater should be fine most likely its up to temp ,thats why its not lighting its main flame . the frozen pipe is another story you need to get the heat up in the house open any cuppord doors that have pipes in them like under a sink ( to let heat from the room get it there ) leave a faucet on hot and wait . at some point you will unfreeze . but you migh end up with a broken pipe so keep your eye out for a water leak . good luck
