TRANE furnace

today when I went to put a new 20X20 filter, the filter was soaked and brought more water out as I removed it. Do I have a problem or will the new filter solve it?

It sounds like your condensate drain is plugged and the drain pan is overflowing.

You can try sucking the condensate drain tube out with a wet-vac. If that doesn't work you can try blowing compressed air into the drain to dislodge and muck and then suck it out. If your condensate line was installed properly there will be a removable cap near the P-trap to aid in cleaning.

The pan is usually in the attic. After you get the pan dry, pour Clorox down the drain tubing. If you do that once or twice a year you will not have this happen again.
