How much water gal/hr is reasonable to expect from the furnace humidifier overflow in "0 degree" farenheit outside to heat a 1500 square foot normal midwestern house to 72 degrees inside having a norm


There is no flow rating because it would depend on too many factors. What you do need to check is the float valve. The water valve is opening and closing like it should be but the reservoir is filling too much.

I have a Utica gas furnace and the overflow pipe is dripping continuously. What could be the problem?


If your Utica is a high efficiency 90+ condensing furnace, I suspect not too much is wrong. A condensing furnace removes so much latent heat from the burned fuel that it condenses the moisture out of the flu-gases. The result is a very low flu temperature, AND water.

The water must be flowing correctly down the proper drain though, or you could suffer damage to the furnace itself. If there is an 'overflow' pipe and it is running over though, the drain downstream must have an obstruction. Clean the drain out and the overflow situation should go away.

Can you have too much water running into the humidifier which would cause it to overflow or put too much water in the pump at the bottom of the furnace?


Yes, it's possible. If you think that's the problem try closing the shutoff slightly. If not then make sure the pump isn't clogged making it back up, and also make sure there's a pad.
Hopefully this helps.

Water is leaking out of the bottom of my furnace. could something be plugged?


What type of fuel does your furnace burn?

Gas does condense more water when it fires, that oil--
and that condensing can be running out--- Usually that would be toward the discharge section of the furnace-- as the exhaust gasses might cool and condense upon leaving the furnace.

Or-- do you have a humidifier on the furnace--and maybe the little water sump is overflowing?

Be brave, and open a panel or two, and look around-- above the area the water is leaking out of-- what is in that area?

If the water stops when the heater is not running then the humidifier is working fine. I know it seems like alot of water but that's how it's designed.

Overflow - Cold water shutoff not working?


Sounds like the cold water valve is faulty. You can try to remove it and clean the inside if it's clogged or replace it completely.
