Water vapor and carbon dioxide. It is important that gas or oil flue vent pipes are installed correctly and maintained throughout the life of the furnace. This taken from our book Advanced Residential Oilburners and applies to powerburners both gas and oil and most other fan-assisted applications. Good vents and flue pipes should be of the proper size and design.
In contrast modern high-efficiency condensing furnaces exhaust much cooler gasses and need only plastic pipe materialssuch as PVC CPVC or ABSfor their exhaust vents. A burner adjustment might also be required. Furnace exhaust pipe carbon monoxide issues can be caused by the age of the furnace poor furnace maintenance or poor installation design issues. 3 The AC does work. Flue Pipe Design. 6 The gas valves to the house and furnace are on.
Beside above do all furnaces have an exhaust pipe. If the flue is made of PVC pipe you have a high-efficiency furnace also called a condensing furnace. 2 The thermostat appears to be fully functional. This taken from our book Advanced Residential Oilburners and applies to powerburners both gas and oil and most other fan-assisted applications. For you to secure the pipes together you will have to use either screws or silicon but it is best if you utilize both procedures.
In comparing the venting of exhaust gases from a high efficiency furnace boiler or water heater with the venting of exhaust gases from a conventional heating system it will be immediately obvious that the high efficiency equipment exhaust is produced at a low-enough temperature that it is vented through comparably small-diameter plastic piping rather than a cooled fire.
3 The AC does work. Carbon monoxide is caused by incomplete combustion of gas or other combustibles. This taken from our book Advanced Residential Oilburners and applies to powerburners both gas and oil and most other fan-assisted applications.
