    Default New Style Furnace Disconnect

    New 8-million dollar house yesterday. Two of the six furnaces had a brand new (to me) type of disconnect switch. The installer simply mounted the regular snap switch box to the bottom of the furnace where it rested snugly against the surface of the axillary pan. That's pure genius! You can either use the switch manually, or when the primary condensate drain lines stops up, the water will rise, short out the switch, and trip the breaker.

    Will likely be on the "soon-to-be-patented" list and will then follow in all the trade journals for all the upcoming HVAC installations.

    No sense in having to "go looking" for the disconnect switch for safety and working on the unit.

    NK: And I am quite certain that the resident geniuses at the TREC will soon add this as a specific must-see item in Texas reports.
