- Furnace filters

Thank you for replying and providing this information. (Sorry I did not get back to this sooner - have had family medical emergency) The furnace is a Lennox Elite SureLite G2603-75. We have determined that it is no longer overheating since we removed the Filtrete filter. Attached to the furnace, whe...

Furnace filters

We have a Lennox high efficiency gas furnace. When it was first installed, we had a (metal) electronic filter on it. This worked well for several years. A while back, when our AC gave trouble, the tech who fixed it told us that the electronic filter was not the best idea and recommended that we swit...

- Gas furnace pipe repair

Thanks for the response. We have had the work checked - our local gas company wanted another $70.00 to do this. We have confirmed that the tubing used is within code for our area and that the tech who did the work did a good job. As to the price - well, I think we got taken for a ride but I think he...

Gas furnace pipe repair

We have a Lennox high efficiency gas furnace, installed in 1999. A few days ago I thought I smelled gas in the house. We called the gas company's emergency number, the inspector arrived, found two or three leaks in the interior piping leading to the furnace and a couple more leaks outside. He shut t...

Thought we had it fixed when a tech came and opened the plenum and found debris in the drain. Also found some coils touching the plenum walls. The unit ran for 4 days after that w...

- AC leaking from evaporator coil

Thanks to all who answered. You were both correct as to the area in which the problem might lie. The tech came this morning. He was the third tech to be sent out on this call and the first to actually open open up the unit! He found debris - bits of cardboard and insulation in the pan, clogging one ...

AC leaking from evaporator coil

I have a Carrier Central Air conditioner - 6 years old - and a Lennox gas furnace - 12 years old. The AC evaporator coil appears to be installed over the upflow furnace. About 3 weeks ago I found water on the floor beside the furnace. It appeared to be running down the outside of the furnace from th...

- Odour of Gas Furnace

Thanks for the responses. I will see about getting this checked out right away. I don't think it is water collecting anywhere. The condensate is pumped out and I regularly check the amount coming out by putting a bucket under the tubing where it comes out into the laundry sink. I have checked for de...

We have a Lennox Elite series high efficiency gas furnace. It was installed about ten years ago and is serviced annually. A couple of years ago, it gave some problems and we had the pressure switch, venter motor and motherboard replaced. From time to time, when the furnace is not actually running, i...
