    contractor hasn't been out in month and half. the first month and a half, I had a service call about 6/7 times. each time the contractor attempted to fix the water and it would work for a day then water again. he says it's either drip pan is installed wrong, or is slanted wrong, or condensation drain line isn't level, or something keeps clogging the drain line, or evap coil keeps freezing up and drain line is too small to handle massive thawing, or.... each time it's always something different.

    I see you are in Maryland. I may know the contractor and may be able to arbitrate if you'd like. My email address is in my profile.

    • The air volume and noise can be reduced by chosing a lower fan speed.
    • The water is from humidity removed from the air. The water is supposed to go down the drain piping. (PICTURES of the drain piping would help.)
    • Was the installation permitted and inspected?
    • A complaint filed with the Maryland Home Improvement Commission is a good step now. http://www.dllr.state.md.us/license/mhic/

    Having had to deal with MD's HVAC inspectors in the past, I would much rather see you resolve the issues with the contractor. Then again, I would accept nothing less then a 2.5 ton cooling system with a 45k Btu furnace with the air volume set for no more then 1,000 cfm of air for the cooling.

    Direct the contractor to this site or have the contractor contact one of us via email in our profiles. There is a very good chance that the contractor can get you happy while learning a bit of an expensive lesson.

    A 90k BTU furnace needs about 1300CFM for a 60F temp rise. So yes, you may have an issue if hte ductwork was originally designed for a 2.5 ton AC (1000CFM).

    It can probably push nearly 1300 throguh the ductowkr, but it will be noisy with high static pressure.


    You should have had a 2.5 ton outdoor unit installed with a 50k or 60k BTU furnace... or possibly even a 40-45k BTU furance since you went from a 80% furnace to a 95% unit.

    the larger AC and furnace will make any temperature imbalances in the home worse, not better as many people would naturally believe.

    The new furnace is an 80% furnace.
