Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hello, I am Kevin from JA.
Can I ask what the model # ***** the furnace is?
take as many pictures of the piping, configuration that you can.
The model # ***** the furnace and the installation piping including gas and flue connections, showing pitch if a 90+ furnace in the vent and flue piping will be key.
no problem, I may be in and out over the weekend, but as soon as we get the pictures, we can certainly look at some suggested fix's.
I received only one photo. I would question the pitch on the drain from the furnace this is the pipe that connects to the bottom of the furnace, not the pan, is this drain pitched towards the drain? Is this drain heat taped? (if the temperature drops below freezing, this will freeze, maybe even back up, and stop the furnace. Very hard to determine from this one picture.
Has any technician been there when the furnace has failed? Any codes given?
I really don't believe that installing a baseboard heater in the attic is safe way to heat the area.
I do believe that condensate may be freezing in the lines. I would try heat taping condensate trap if one is there and outlets of the piping. I would want to know what is holding the furnace out. When the technicians go there, there should be some sort of code they could read on board.
