Trane xv80 install draft exhaust wires on furnace


xv80 Trane furnace install. Hooked up to a draft
inducer has two wires that need to hook on to the furnace.

This is to get the 110 volts needed to run the fan i think.

I think this is supplied on the other side of a relay (24
volts ?).

Can someone tell me where exactly the wires
go on this furnace 2006 xv80 force air oil.

The past furnace had an Intercity inline draft inducer
about 10 feet from the furnace. Repair man had working
with a safety switch with an air pressure tube.

It worked fine when connected to the old furnace.

There were two (white?) wires connected to the furnace.

The new Trane should have a relay that connects it
to 110 volts? But where do these two wires go.


If you need the exact model of the intercity draft
inducer i will supply it. It comes as a kit and is cut
in to the side of the exhaust pipe.


Thanks

The only place to 120volts from is the inducer of the furnace.

But, the power vent needs to run for 60 to 120 seconds after teh furnace shuts off.

So hooking it to the inducer, doesn't work very well.

What type of barometric damper are you using.
Required, unless you don't mind 40% of your heating bill to be for heating the outside air.

You should get a new powervent. One that come with the proper code compliant controls.

Draft Inducers

Field Draft Inducers solve the drafting problems caused by short chimneys, undersized flue pipes and negative building pressures.

Draft Inducers are designed for easy installation in a wide variety of applications, including oil or gas-fired furnaces, water heaters, and boilers. For venting single or multiple appliances, use a control kit.

DI Paks are available for 24 volt and millivolt applications and include all controls necessary.


When to use a Draft Inducer

Long horizontal vent runs
Undersized flue pipes
Short chimneys
Outside exposed chimney
this cannot work with my

Trane xv80 2006 new furnace

Am I to understand there is no way to hook this up?

You can hook it up to the inducer wires..

The questions are.
Why doesn't the chimney draft.
Will the inducer caue more problems then it is covering up.

You see that thing they are callng a draft control?
Thats a barometric draft regulator. Does your system have one?
Many 80% frnaces are destroyed by poor chimneys.
