The installation of the combustion air intake is specifically defined in the installation instructions. Find the model number of the furnace and locate an installation manual online, or have a professional do the task for you.

What is the AFUE of my Rudd Achiever 90 Plus with model number UGRA-07EMAES

Per Rudd's website and also as the name implies, the min rating is 90. The 90+ can be as high as 93 but is stated as "plus" to cover the many possible installation scenarios which will impact overall efficiency of the unit.

Why is the engine firing up through air intake

Sounds like your timing is out..or the valve slap needs adjusted..When this happens the inake valve is partly open during the firing stoke allowing some of the exaust to go back through the intake..and out the carb..good good luck

Rudd acheiver 10 heat pump wont stay cool

did you change the air filter and do not set it below 70,the tstat is not a gas pedal its works like a light switch, on or off, also please don't use your breaker as a switch its a safety device and will be damaged over time,If the unit starts to form ice (and it should never do that)
set the tstat from cool to off and the fan button from auto to fan on,this will speed up the thawing

Misses sometimes, no power, transmition is hard when changing gears and slow advance hooked up there machine and it said mass air flow sensor will this make the transmition act up?

yes . because transmission shift points are mainly acheived through proper functioning engine and its components. if the engine light came on due to mass air flow sensor you may want to check the air intake tube for splits that will allow the engine to **** air in that the computer does not relate to the air flow sensor. the kia dealer get about $110.00 dollars for the tube but a good roll a black tape can do wonders on those splits.

I have a Rudd ultra series 16.0 and I cant get the air to blow hot..I have heat on and "hold at 90" but it wont is less than 1 yr old

I am curious if the unit is short cycling. If it is, take the face off of your thermostat and turn the anticipator to .4 and when you can have a tech take an amp draw on your furnace. If it is a new furnace and old thermostat, it may not have been checked with the new install

We have a Rudd acheive 90 plus (11 years old) that fires but will not stay running. Any suggestions?

I have not worked on any Rudd 90s but in some furnaces a flame sensor on the opposite side from the igniter can get dirty. It looks like a 0.08 " wire sticking out of a ceramic holder.Cleaning the wire with scotchbright will often cure the problem . Good luck

Rudd exhuast and air intake lines

You need to make sureyou are at least 12" above ground with your termination if you live where you get accumulating snow levels. Next, your exhaust needs to be separated from your intake via a "goose neck"(straight pipe out of your house with 90 degree elbow pointed up then attach a 10" piece of pipe with a 90 degree elbow pointed out away from your house. The reason you want to keep them separated is that your intake will **** exhausted air into combustion chamber causing burner lift etc. due to no oxygen to properly burn. I usually put a 45 degree on intake so it is not so inviting to birds etc. Good Luck
