    Furnace Flu codes/specs

    Couple of questions here....
    1) Does the flu coming off the furnace have to go straight up or can it be bent and moved around?
    2) Does the flu have to maintain a certain distance from any structure and if so what is it? Can I possibly use any material to reduce that distance?

    Any help on these questions is appreciated. Thanks

    There are many codes and rules for a flue. It is not somthing that you would want to mess around with as you could harm your family. It may be possible to do what you are asking but without seeing the job it is impossible to comment.

    Have a local contractor take a look to see what may be done.
    Its a good Life!

    Different vent categories have different requirements.

    As simple as running a flue may seem. Done wrong it can cause serious harm.
    Call a service tech/installer.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
