This is the second one I've seen in the past two weeks. The last one I inspected was installed the same exact way and all 15 feet of vent connectors (inside the finished basement) were laterally installed (no slope) with two L-connectors (not elbows). I'm not done yet. I also noticed that the access door in front of the blower was missing and an intake filter was installed over this exposed opening. What are people thinking nowadays?!(upload://aknpuDfhccrZKRyjQTQQ4l0sais.gif)
The owner had told me that when she purchased the house seven years ago, the Home Inspector never picked up on these defects. I told my client that the venting and blower cover must be corrected in order for the furnace to function properly. I gave her specs for a properly vented furnace and told her to replace the filter with the manufacturers cover. I also showed her where the filter is actually supposed to be installed.
