I have no clue what I saw today during and inspection. In the attic, into the chimney chase (brick), there were (2) 1 1/4" or 1 1/2", black iron pipes. The pipes come up vertically several feet thro the attic floor from opposite sides of the chimney, make a 90, then horizontally 8-10 feet into the chimney chase, one several feet above the attic floor the other about a foot above the floor. There was a different brick where one of the pipes had been installed, seems done after the chimney was built. The house is about 90 years old, two story, cape cod with a brand new gas forced air furnace and older gas water heater in the basement with a cistern. Sorry I don?t have a picture but if no one has any idea what I?m talking about it could be possible to return and snap one. No signs of these pipes in the basement??
Can anyone enlighten me?
