    The condensate pump looks like it could fall off the edge, just like California!

    Scott, you do pretty work. We may team up yet.
    The pic is unclear about a few things for me. Is there an aux drain ?cant make it out. Does the condinsate pump have overflow shutoff float? If you only have a primary drain, does the furnace need a pan to sit in with a flood switch?

    Don

    Thanks, and we still haven't ( done lunch ). Switch is around right side of coil cabinet,pump is older model w/o switch and furnace is in a garage. The customer didn't want the impact post and said he would remove it. I suggested not telling me that and not doing it. He deceided to leave it.

    If the furnace is in a garage, shouldn't it set at least 18 inches off of the floor?

    18"

    I think all up flow gas furnaces are built so that the firing line is over 18" from the floor. There has been discussion about oil furnaces though around here. Doesn't leave much room if a low boy is raised up so high boys are being used if there is enough room. The firing line on this one would be at 40" and it's direct vent.

    I'm thinking out loud here.... but you have to have electrical outlets 18" off the floor incase of a spark. But wouldn't the motor possibly make a spark?

    18"

    Your right, that has been part of the discussion concerning sources of ignition. i understand since the relays are enclosed ------ but to argue that we have to have AC units and exhaust vents x feet from gas meters so--------. I will ask at me CE class in January. HEY DON WHAT SAY YOU ON THIS ?

    Thanks for making me think and read. Here is what I found. Right hand colum, elevation of ignition source and exceptions. .
