Condensate dripping off coil


Ok. Thanks I will inspect carefully.
BTW: What are the results of a bad heat exchanger? Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide poisoning. Odorless, tasteless. You be sleeping, possibly with a headache and nasueating feeling and then simply not wake up, ever.

I would have the static pressure checked. Too high of pressure can cause the watwr to be sucked off of the coil.

I have Carbon Monoxide Alarms throughout my home so I would have been alerted to that.

i will have them check that, but I would rather they install it according to manufacture specs also.

Well if this is new install I highly doubt that the heat exchanger is cracked. Usually it takes many years of using heating mode for that to happen.

I was just suggesting that since it was a seriously messed up hack install all the way around to try and use the fact that condensation made it onto the exhanger and you know that that is not right to try and get a new one, just to stick a thorn in their side.

I would. And then I'd file a report stating everything wrong with that system with the BBB if they let you do that and tell everyone you know to stay away from Sears.

Then I'd make a big sign stating, "SEARS IS HACK AND UNPROFESSIONAL AND COULD'VE KILLED MY FAMILY" and stand outside of Sears main headquarters with said sign.

I hate Sears.

The sub contractors that installed it are the ones that have been trying to figure it out. I have a complaint on file with the BBB and have been in touch with Sears directly about the situation. I will definitely mention possible damage to the heat exchanger to them.
I will be there when the work gets done so I will inspect it myself. I have no problem damanding as it has been going on for 2 seasons, but if upon inspection all is good then so be it. I don't know for a fact if the heat exchanger was affected and won't know until it is taken apart.
What should I look for as far as damage to it?
It will rust from the inside. You wont see damage on the outside.
