Doug showed up this morning and continued working on the heating system. Last Friday he installed more large duct work, piped the PVC condensate drain from the furnace and installed a fresh air vent that is required by code. Today he installed the PVC combustion air and exhaust piping for the furnace. We've all seen these pipes exiting through the wall of any home with a newer high efficiency gas furnace. They are usually just two 4 or 5 inch pipes sticking out from the wall...some have one of the pipes sticking up vertically a couple feet. That's what I was expecting. But, I was pleasantly surprised. Doug installed a alternative inlet/exhaust fixture. I think it looks much better than plain pipes.
