OK kewl thanks - that drain is definitely there and I do hear a lot of dripping :) So, just ask him to connect the combustion air inflow - correct?

yikes.. i checked the clearance between the furnace and the HVAC room ceiling (it is a low ceiling height room) and there is no room for the pipes to go up and then out.. only about 2 inches or so...

I just spoke with him - he is awesome. He said he would come connect the PVC pipe to the combustion air connection on the unit.
Initially this room had a central air return grille facing the apt....

Thanks. Right now, there's only one pipe connected to the blower compartment (flue pipe connection). The other pipe is left feeding the room and the combustion air intake connection is not connected....

yikes!! thanks much! I will get this fixed right away.

OK, I will call him and let him know that it might fail inspection. Is there any danger associated with keeping it this way? To the furnace or to my household?

But it is a 95% furnace though.. Goodman GMV950453bx

Does any NYC contractor on this website know whether it is against code please? That would really help me out. Or should I just ask my installer to come back and fix it?

Ah.. I didn't realise that it would fail the inspection. I am actually not sure of the code in NYC but I can ask my installer - he said that the new GMV95s don't have a place for an air intake - I...

Hi all and thanks in advance for any help.
My installer just completed my new HVAC install.
The furnace+blower are in a pretty air tight HVAC room. The return duct from the apt feeds into this...

Thanks! When I had them over, they mentioned that I should downsize. I agree whole heartedly with them, however I cannot afford a new system right now (this is about 2 yrs old).
However, none of...

I am not trying to do this myself. I have already invited 5 HVAC contractors and my experience has been pretty dissapointing with them (I also invited them as part of a much larger project that...

Hi all and thanks very much in advance.
I have a design idea that I wanted to get comments/suggestions from you guys - if you have the time.
I have 2 adjacent rooms, both with...
Actually, you might be right on the money - the thermostat is right under a skylight and also used to get sun beating down on it from the *wall of windows* around 3 pm onwards!
Well, as with heating, this helped for cooling too. Is this my only option? (well, of course, other than replacing the unit)?
Thanks so much!
Thanks - I will look into it and find out if this can help me!
well, it is a tiny apt - it is at about 6 ft height and there are 2 registers at around 13 ft height about 10 ft in front of it and 10 ft to its right - should I close them?
Kewl thanks - i had tried this during winter to get it to run for longer. I will try this now.
Yeah, i thought of that too.. but in NYC that costs muchos dollares :) also, if the RH was above 60% (I think) then I might have had a case, but the RH seems to be around 40% ??? so, no case here :-(
Not sure how this applies to my question though.. are you saying that I should try to reduce the blower speed? Wouldn't that ice the coil?
Or was this directed to Luis?
I know it's a bad situation - I go through hell during winters (comes on for 5 mins, stays off for 15) and I am always freezing.. If the economy was good and I was making any money I would have...
So, maybe I am wrong.

This is a 5 tonne unit right? I got this with the new apt (well, almost 2 yrs old now).
680 sq ft :( with 14 ft ceilings
That's what got me concerned.. typically it would run for about 3-5 mins or so, but once or twice it ran for 30 secs?? i was perplexed!! I have 2 ceiling fans (14 ft ceilings) running constantly. The...
