    Furnace Behaving Weird

    Dear plumbing gurus Please help figure out the issue. My 1 yo furnace just stopped producing heat and me and the child are freezing in the apartment. 1. The furnace doesn’t react to the thermostat adjustments any more. Before the issue, the thermostat was programmed, but if I needed to hike...

    WH back drafts when the furnace is on at the same time

    Sorry for the long post, but I don’t want to leave anything important out. Over the weekend, I noticed that our hot water heater back drafts when the furnace is on at the same time. They both vent together to the chimney. Please see attached pictures. The WH (40 gallon – 40,000BTU input) is 4...

    Very Confusing Furnace: No Signs Of Life

    Hi, I have a 10 year old Lennox furnace that stopped working overnight. Tried swapping thermostat with an identical functional one, nothing. Green led on board does not light up at all. It is getting 109 volts at the control board but the moment you plug in the 24v transformer, it drops to 0.1...

    Venting/BackDraft on Rheem Water Heater?

    My carbon monoxide detector went off recently, so I had the gas company out to test levels at our only gas appliances -- 38000 BTU Rheem* water heater and 80% efficient 88000 BTU furnace sharing flue venting. The gas company measured 45 ppm CO at the top of the unit when it was kicked on (and...

    Nordyne / Frigidaire high limit sensor replacement?

    OK all, I have a 2007 Frigidaire furnace that started throwing a 4 blink code, which indicates an open high limit switch according to the manual. So I pulled that switch, measured about 4 ohms of resistance at room temperature, so that all checks out so far. I ordered a new one from Nordyne...

    Small Holes in Gas Furnace and Water Heater Exhaust Pipes

    I was surprised to see a small hole in each of the exhaust pipes for the gas furnace and water heater in my new-to-me house. Is there any reason why there would be a hole in an exhaust pipe like this? I certainly have never heard of one. They almost look intentional — or accidental but...

    Clean the air Naturally

    I helped on this video to explain a new technology being used to clean inside air. I installed this in my furnace and immediately noticed that the air inside was cleaner and we no longer saw dust particles hanging in the air normally visible in the sunlight coming in through the windows. Now I...

    Furnace doesn’t work with fan it auto

    My furnace stopped working a few days back. Troubleshooting I found it worked when I switched the fan to “on” position. (It’s in heating mode). With fan in “auto” I hear a soft hum but it does not ever try and cycle on. I replaced the capacitor thinking this might be the culprit, no change...

    Flame sensor on Peerless Furnace

    Hi, My Peerless furnace keeps cycling on and off. I believe it is due to a dirty flame sensor, but am unable to locate the sensor. I have the model MCB 097. Any advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    CPVC for venting EXHAUST oh no you didn't!

    4 story condo. Built in 2005. All the exhaust vents for WH and Furnace are CPVC and some are turning brown. WH installer refused to hook up new one until the CPVC gets replaced. It sounds like even PVC will be a no-no soon. 2 families are suing over CO deaths attributed to CPVC. We have to RIP...

    Replacing Baxi Luna 310 with Viessmann 35 Combi

    My baseboards produce 75,000 BTU using 1660 per foot. Three contractors all want to use Viessmann. What negotiating points can I ask for? I'm keeping my two thermostats. How many annual free maintenance calls are reasonable? Isn't $6900 quite high using existing plumbing and gas lines? What...

    Basement cold air return

    I have a new finished basement that has plenty of supply air ducts on the ceiling. The return air duct is also on the ceiling. I question this. It makes sense to me to have the cold air return duct on the floor as to pull the cool air off the floor and draw the warm air down off the ceiling...
