    You don't need that vent anymore???

    A lady called today because she had a new roof put on her house. Roofing contractor told her she didn't need that vent coming through the roof anymore.

    I like the way the line-set is holding the vent pipe up. Those darn straps are so expensive, it's good when you can cut a corner. And piping in to the attic with an open vent pipe? No problem. Leads to less mice.
    I'll be done in just a few minutes...

    I've never been to the house before. After talking to the lady, she sent me the pics to my phone. She said the furnace was installed in 2011.

    Looks like alarm system wiring.
    First time i've ever actually give them a thumbs up for there wiring/vent strap.

    I saw one exactly like that, it was discovered when the homeowner became curious of a melted area on his snow covered roof.

    you mean a vent like that? and it created a hot spot on the roof, melting the snow? pretty wild (Like a crop circle, except with snow)

    Roofers are geniuses. I think a felony record is also a Prerequisite for the job

    And roofers HATE doing any kind of warranty work. That's why they're always pushing THEIR repairs off on us.

    Not familiar with that furnace, but isn't that a condensing furnace? Looks like the intake is right under the evap drain line...
