    no photo-venting stupidity

    new homeowner wanted furnace check over, husband, wife and infant not that it really matters.

    original Coleman 2775-766 gas induced draft 80% unit.

    the flue pipe was too big, 6" round, for the 5" oval flue collar on the metal collector box.

    guess what they did,....



    ...they attached the pipe to the top horizontal plate of the furnace leaving a 1/2"-3/4" gap between the flue collar and the flue pipe. so much for the blocked vent switch!!

    been this way since day one and it has been serviced by at least 2 other companies in the past.

    maybe that is why there are 5 CO detectors in that immediate vicinity, 2 of them are hard wired types and dismantled.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
    from an excerpt by Paul Jacob in Sun City, AZ

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Wow!!! Amazing the bs that we all seem to run into, I am truly amazed there are not more installation related accidents or worse, deaths directly related to lack of quality control or common sense.
