    Hmmm. Putting a little spin on your question, would buying the components for a new car on line and having a local auto mechanic build it make sense? I doubt you'll find a true pro on this site that...

    It wasn't the negative uneed to vent the unit so much as the pipe heated up so quickly it allowed the minimal pressure of the 80% furnace inducer to do the job. Once the vent had to be replaced, it...
