    A hole in the floor is how my AC unit was drained. The previous owners swore they never had a problem, but as soon as I turned on the AC, I had a wet basement. Perhaps they never turned it on???

    Well hopefully doing the a 90+ furnace and several SEER on the AC can save that much again. Perhaps I need to hope for cold winters and hot summers so I can have a quicker payoff. :D
