Anyone have anything to say about an "Ultra High Efficiency Carrier' furnace, direct vent, five years old, being vented through an attic space, then through the roof with the PVC exhaust vent being wrapped in a foam like insulation?
The termination point was about 18" above roof line and it looked just like a plumbing vent (other than colour) so there was standing water in the pipe and slight drops of water under the inducer fan housing which luckily is plastic.
I have never seen a direct vent going through a roof space. I have never seen exhaust pipes being wrapped with insulation.
I recommended servicing for the furnace anyway because of the water, and the missing electronic filter and disgustingly dirty furnace filter, upon start up there was a also a pretty good rattle coming from the burners.
