  1. New furnace installed yesterday. Installer swapped intake and vent lines. inducer intake comes from roof now and exhaust is horizontal through the side of ny house. Called him to let him know and was told this is not an issue.
    There is 27 years of exhaust grime inside the vent pvc, do I really want that on the “fresh” intake?

    1. Hi Tim! Most high-efficiency furnaces that are vented with PVC pipe produce water and pretty much clean the plastic vent pipes. The only reason for the PVC pipe to get dirty would be if the old furnace had a crack in the heat exchanger, or a poor burn and allowed suit and black dirt to build up inside the vent pipe. It really should not matter if the vent and intake are switched unless you see that the pipe is really dirty, but like I say on most high-efficiency furnaces the vents are pretty much self-cleaning. I hope you have a great day! Steve
