Hello I’m a visitor and enjoy reading the messages and am amazed at the skill & expertise and the information available at this site. I wanted to ask about my furnace: it’s a 1968 model and is working fine. My house is a one story brick ranch built in 1957. The furnace is in a utility room off of the garage and the floor is a cement slab which has sunk down several inches over the years.
The lower section of the Furnace is the A/C coil I believe and the drain pipe is plastic PVC which goes through the wall, through the crawl space, and out an exterior wall.
As the floor has slowly sunk down, the condensation from the coil no longer drains as the angle of the drain pipe is now uphill. ![icon_sad.gif](upload://nMBtKsE7kuDHGvTX96IWpBt1rTb.gif)
I would like to fix the problem by raising the furnace unit 1-2 inches. Am I on the right track? I have owned this home for 1 and 1/2 years. Thank you for you advice.
