Furnace pans, which are generally called condensate drain pans, are an important part of your air heating and cooling system. They catch the water that is generated from your air conditioner, to make sure it doesn’t leak into other parts of the house. Many homeowners have found that when their pans aren’t working, the water ends up damaging parts of the house, like ceilings and floors. It can be frustrating, which is why you should replace the pan if it ever gets loose.

In our selection, we note which condensate pans have gone out of stock and which are good replacements. A good number have been discontinued, but we try to keep them on hand for older systems.

Carrier is our top brand for this part. We recommend using the 28HQ400071 Horizontal Condensate Pan when you need a similarly arranged replacement. The 28MC500384 Vertical Condensate Pan is another option if you don’t have a horizontal drain pan.

Other brands that we carry include York and Nordyne. The Nordyne 669941 Vertical Drain Pan is one such example that we can recommend.

How Does A Condensate Drain Pan Work With Air Conditioning?

Air conditioning involves the system absorbing the warm air from the local area’s atmosphere, removing the heat and moisture, and releasing it to cool the house, room, or building. The filter and evaporator coils help with removing both by becoming very cold and circulating the air through the refrigerant. This process is called the heat transfer

Water droplets form when the temperature is sufficiently lowered after it’s separated from the air. They appear on the evaporator coil during the heat transfer, before dripping off the glass. The pan then collects all of the droplets so that they don’t leak into the walls.

The pan is connected to a condensate drain line. This is a series of piping that connects to the sewage system outside the house. When the air conditioning is not in use, the drain line transports the water outside of the house so that it doesn’t gather.

If the water is left, it can become prone to mold or bacteria, which is hazardous to the people inside the house. Transporting it quickly makes everyone safer.
