  4. Cat IV Wall Termination-2 pipe installed vertically

    The direct vent requirements for this furnace call for the two pipes to be installed horizontally. What are the practical concerns with this set up of the pipes being installed vertically?

    White Pleated or Blue Furnace Filter

    "Does the exhaust "90" down so it isn't subject to massive rain influx ?" No. But it is immediately beneath a deck which is just another issue in a long list of installation problems.

    Water Stains on Zone Valves

    Several of these zone valves had stains like they had past leaks. They may have self-sealed. I don't know. I found four out of 33 that had active leaks and a bunch with stains beneath.

    If they had...

    Thanks.
    The original coolant line had been cut and replaced with this set up. I'm a home inspector and I told my client that this was puzzling.

    AC Coolant Line Loops

    The far AC unit in the photos (6 ton, I believe) makes 5 coolant line u-turns under this deck before it heads up the wall to the 3rd floor. What's the reason?
