The existing condensate pump for my furnace recently died. It was hard-wired directly into the electrical panel of the furnace but I was able to disconnect it. However, when looking for a new pump, all the models I found had a standard 115V wall plug.
I have plugged it in to a nearby outlet and the pump is working fine, but is this the best method? Would it be better for me to cut off the wall plug and wire it directly into the furnace like the previous one was?
