    90% vented into chimney

    The intake


    The exhaust, vented into, not up the chimney. At least they put a 90 elbow in there.


    Pretty wood return box.


    Nice transition for best airflow.


    I went upstairs on my way out, and noticed that the plaster was all gone along the chimney in the dining room. He said the paint bubbled and stained, so he ripped it out.

    A month later, he hasn't called back to have me fix the venting. I don't know how it worked for 5 years. It was off on a pressure switch code.

    That's real pretty.
    C'mon - if the pvc can handle it, the brick can handle it.

    If a permit was pulled you would know if it's acceptable or not...I would have to say "not".

    so much for equal pressue as both vents are supposed be terminated on the same wall,roof etc. but that's the least of the worries there!did you advise them it's just a matter of time before all the weight of the chimney will come crashing down wiping out everything belowthanks for posting--very scary the things people do.
    do it right the first time!

    Man, I hate that when they are too lazy to properly Stain and Varnish the return. Now it's on the net to make use all look bad.
