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.

How to fix air conditioner causing a lot of Water pools


Air conditioners and high-efficiency combustion furnaces create significant condensation, which exits through a plastic drain tube. This should go into a floor drain or be carried away by a small “condensate pump.” If water is pooling at the base of the appliance, something may be blocking the water's flow, or leaking, or the pump may not be working.
1) Look to see if one of the tubes is leaking. If it is, replace it.
2) Test the condensate pump by pouring water into its pan. If the pump doesn't start, either it isn't receiving power or it is broken. Be sure that it's plugged in and test the circuit. If it's broken, either get it repaired or replace it.
3) If the pump runs but doesn't empty the pan, the ball-like check valve just before the discharge tube is probably stuck. Unscrew the check valve, loosen the ball inside, and look for an obstruction. If it appears that a condensation drain tube is clogged with algae, remove it if possible (you may have to cut it and replace it later with a coupling). Run a wire through it to clear it. To kill the algae, pour a dilute solution of bleach (1 part bleach to 16 parts water) through the pipe.
4) Ice may be blocking the tube. If this is the case, be sure the filter isn't dirty. If the filter appears to be fine, the air conditioner's refrigerant supply is probably low. This is when it's time to call an air-conditioning technician.

There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

Hi,
It seems as though you have an unrelated water leak....
Often the water supplies are copper tubing....
Copper tubing and concrete do not get along well...
but hey it lasts till the warranty is up....

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
