    Mobile Home Furnace Not in a Mobile Home

    Mobile Home Electric Furnace Installed in a Residential Application. The Supply Plenum was made from Foam Insulating Board. It was Clearly Marked COMBUSTABLE! It was 3" from the heaters!! Its all gone and set up properly now. O just so you know it passed a Home Inspection.

    Passed a "home inspection." I'm guessing not a local code inspection. Looks like crap.

    If that's anything like in my area, it isn't saying much.

    Brings back memories .

    I once went on a call to start / service / set-up a homeowner installed oil furnace .

    He had the furnace installed outside under his carport. The point where I declined was when I found his PLYWOOD plenums , supply and return ductwork.

    He had put o lot of effort into it but I wasn't going to read about his death or get drug into court over a house fire /injury or death.
