When we first got central A/C installed in our home back in 1988, a
condensate pump was installed to get rid of the water. It has to pump a fair
distance (about 30+ feet) to a drain.
Since then the home has grown, and now the same ol' pump services two
high-efficiency furnaces and their A/C coils. When both furnaces are on, the
pump gets pretty busy.
Given this pump's vintage, should I think about replacing it? It if were to
fail, I would have a rec room full of water.
