    I've been through (3) of the flimsy cardboard pleated filters already. Each one collapsed but the force of...

    I assume this would cause the filter to collapse as well ?

    I'm going to down for a look right now. I'll report back soon what I find out.

    The filter was only a couple months old and still pretty clean.

    I know our intake vent is way too small (under-sized) and needs to be enlarged. We've been in the house (18) years without any...

    Not sure yet. The furnace is located under the house and not quick access. I have to shovel snow off the entrance door to access under the house.

    I have had (in the past) issues with the filter...

    Furnace Double Cycles......WHY ?

    I have a newer Rheem RGPS along with a new electronic thermostat.

    The system works well overall, but recently started an odd behavior.

    The furnace will double cycle before it finally turns...

    Correct. Nothing is insulated from what I can tell. Just all the original duct work from the 1950s!

    Definately going to put that mil floor liner down ASAP!

    I was worried about over-working and burning out the pump.

    Good stuff! Thank you.

    Given we were dumping 5-10 gal/day last year, if I install a dehumidifier and drain it into the same pump as the furnace, do you think that pump can handle the xtra load ?...

    I suspect there is condensate in the furnace and ducts as well.

    The condensate line is clear and flowing. The pump is pumping as it should.

    Would it be wise to open up (and a vent) to the...

    Very good info folks!

    There are NO vents in the foundation. It is stone all the way around. I do have it sealed (expandable foam) where possible.

    I like the idea of the heavy plastic for a...
  16. Very Heavy Condensation in Crawl Space (pics).... NEED ADVICE !

    Our house is just over 100 years old and has the furnace/AC coil located down underneath in an uninsulated crawl space. The actually area where the furnace is located is about 15' x 15' x 6' 6" in...

    The house does have updated (3 wire) wiring. Also, the furnace line is a dedicated run straight off the circuit panel box.

    I agree that a weak (no ground) connection will cause nuisance lockouts....

    The plug is a (3) pronged type. Will that suffice ?

    Well, I found the culprit that was causing the furnace to NOT come ON fully. It was turning ON the inducer fan, burners firing and when the blower would go to START up the whole furnace would shut...

    Thank you all for your very helpful input. I really do appreciate.

    Ok, I got ya now. Actually, those runs have very decent air flow, the only complaint is the long one (35' or so) puts out luke warm air by the time it gets to the register.

    The run we really have...

    I don't know about the filter door.... ??

    The AC coil was actually very clean when they pulled it out.

    They are coming back when the weather warms up (they said above 50 degrees) to recharge...

    No. It was installed vertically, but it was at such an angle it was touching the outer metal cabinet. The Tech bent it back a bit so it is vertically straight up and down.

    That is the ONLY thing...

    I should mention also we have (3) CO2 detectors running. One in the crawl space (not far from the furnace), 1st and 2nd floors. None have ever gone off.
