    Little problem with the English, eh? Not really sure what your question is, but you need to call an HVAC service to figure it out. Too many variables in your post.

      most likely it is condensation, the pipe is colder and the humidity is condensing on it and it then dripping off, the pipe, since I have no knowledge of the furnace I do not know if it correctly plumbed or set up correctly,
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      it was kind of funny yesterday had a flat tire on the tractor, front, and it unseated off the rim, there hard to seat, so I was using the "bead cheata", a air tank with a 2" pipe and ball valve on it so you can dump all the air in the tank at once, you place it on the rim between the tire and rim, and dump it and it will blow the tire out and on the rim,
      Any way with the fast decompression the air cools and when I sat down the bead cheata, the cloud like water vapor coming out of it was just like smoke , one time the tire did not seat and the vapor was coming out between the tire and the rim, like a white smoke,
      after a few tries I did get the tire seated and aired up, (bad valve core),

      3 ton? in Michigan? Sounds blatantly oversized. and, you shouldnt be sucking in moist air from the intake pipe when the blower is running. something is wrong. slowing the blower will make the condensation problem worse.

      call your AHJ. They can enforce the permit not pulled on the installing contractor, and you can force him to make it right. You need a manual J, D, and S to make the system work correctly
