    Default Crawlspace vents

    Does anyone know if it is acceptable to run the air conditioning lines through the crawlspace wall vent?

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    I didn't realize there was any other way to do it

    Around here that's the method about 90% of the time.

    Ryan,

    I see it done a couple of different ways. Sometimes they use a roof jack flashing, but generally around here it is pretty standard to run it through the foundation air vents. Looks like the screen is damaged in your pic. The screen should be repaired, otherwise critters can party under the house.

    Oregon.... and I totally agree with Gunnar. The installers leave the screens with just the right size gap for a pregnant Oregon rat to move in and have a bunch of babies.

    Ryan, I just replied to your other post. Again I can write up 95% of crawlspaces, mostly no vapor barrier on floor.

    It's okay ... as long as the vent area is not reduced below that which is required (and most lack proper minimum vent space anyway).

    Looks like the AC installers were just too lazy to do it correctly.
