DISPOSAL
MonthlylAnnually
Your furnace
has a condensate
trap as part of the vent
system:
The moisture
in the flue gases will condense
and collect
in the trap to go to an inside
drain
or be
pumped
to a sewer
line using
a condensate
pump.
]:he Condensate
Trap and Condensate
Neutralizer
Car-
tridge
(_{ used) in the drain line leading
from the trap
will require some maintenance.
Disassemble
and clean
trap and cartridge
prior to each heating
season
or if
drain line becomes
plugged.
Inspect the drain fine and overflow
line at least
mon-
thly. If the Condensate
Neutralizer
Cartridge
becomes
plugged
the
condensate
will
flow
through
the
overflow
line. If this happens clean both cartridge
and
trap.
TO CLEAN:
Disconnect
the drain line cartridge
and
unscrew
end cap from cartridge.
Pour the neutralizer
out and thoroughly
flush neutralizer
and inside of car-
tridge with water.
Pour neutralizer
back into cartridge,
adding
neutralizer
if cartridge
is less than
¾ full.
Unscrew

GAS
PASSAGES/Monthly
A properly
adjusted
gas furnace.should
not require
cleaning
at frequent
intervals,
but it should
be in-
spected
regularly
to ensure safe and efficient
opera-
tion. A brief monthly
inspection is recommended
that
does not require disassembly,
in addition
you should
have the furnace
inspected,
and cleaned
if required,
by a qualified
service
technician
annually.
During the monthly
inspection
check the vent pipe and
fresh air intake
(if installed),
to be sure they
are clear
and free of obstructions.
Check vent pipe for evidence
of condensate
leakage, tight joints, secure attachment
to furnace
and sagging
pipe.
Horizontal
sections
of pipe must
slope upward
1/4"
per foot
except
sections
between
furnace
and drain
trap when
trap is not mounted
directly
on furnace.
Any horizontal
section
(max. 4" long) must slope down
a minimum
of 1/4"
per foot to trap. Vertical
sections
to trap can be a maximum
of 5 feet.
Check return
air duct to make sure it is sealed
to fur-
nace casing
and that it is in good physical condition.
It must
terminate
outside
the space
containing
the
furnace
with
no holes or inlets
in furnace
space.
