Came across a direct vent fireplace that obviously isn’t right. Besides that it probably was not installed to manufacturer specs, it appears to be generating a lot of heat and by-product.
Note that the vinyl soffits were changed with aluminum. The aluminum guard at the right was added to protect the screened enclosure. Homeowner says that he added the metal guard prior to final inspection.Could the metal guard (not installed to manufacturer specs) be causing all this mess *(I am recommending additional evaluation).
Can anyone enlighten me as to what they think MAY be happening?
Thanks in advance!
