    Ran into this gem yesterday

    Original call was for blower motor rattles,and has poor airflow. House is for sale and homeowner wanted us to replace the motor to improve air flow. There is a total of 3 supplies, 2 - 6's and the pièce de résistance a 5" split with a tee right off the plenum and then split yet again by another tee to 2 more 5's.

    And yes indeed that is an aluminum dryer vent 90 off of the draft diverter going into type b vent that is ran backwards all the way to the chimney.

    The blower motor was completely caked with dirt as well as the coil. I informed him that the last thing he needed was a new blower motor.

    I like the vent adaptor the most.

    duct tape and cable ties will fix anything, if that don't work add a 90-340.
