Why does my furnace have a condensate pump?
Consequently, do I need a condensate pump on my furnace?
If you have an air conditioning system with an indoor unit, or you use a high efficiency furnace, then you definitely need to have a condensate pump to remove the vapor and other condensate that will accumulate when the system runs.
Secondly, why does my furnace have a water pump? A clog or problem in the condensate system Your high-efficiency furnace has an entire system set up to drain away the condensation it produces. But if there is an issue or a clog anywhere in the condensate line or drain, water will begin overflowing and leaking from the furnace and onto the floor.
Likewise, people ask, what is condensate pump in the furnace?
A condensate pump is a specific type of pump used to pump the condensate (water) produced in a heating or cooling, refrigeration, condensing boiler furnace, or steam system.
How long do condensate pumps last?
