Hi I am new to this forum so I apologize in advance if I break a rule or ask something stupid.
I just had my oil furnace replaced with a new gas Bryant 987MA Evolution furnace. One of the main reasons that I decided on this model is because it is quiet. The furnace is in the basement but is directly underneath the family room so I wanted as little noise as possible. So far, I am very pleased with my new heater (heats very evenly and comfortably and is very quiet!) but the condensate pump that was installed with it is very noisy. I can even hear it on the second floor!
I asked my installer if something could be done to make it quieter, and he switched out the original pump with a different brand. Sadly, the 2nd one is just as loud. It sounds like a small airplane taking off. The model that is currently installed is a Beckett CB201UL. I am not certain what the exact model of the first pump was but it was a Diversitech CP-22something.
I wanted to know if anyone can recommend a very quiet pump as a replacement. I did read some other forums and made sure that it is not rattling against the side of the furnace (which it definitely isn't). I even put some cushioning between the pump and the furnace to be certain. No good. Still very loud. It's the motor itself that is the noisy culprit. Any recommendations?
