    Default gas furnace venting

    why would an HVAC contractor vent the exhaust flue into a turbine vent in the attic, looked pretty dangerous to me. Tell me if I am wrong, but I told the client the vent needs to be thru the roof with proper roof flashing and vent cover. Need input here.

    Maybe that's the HVAC's version of 'Fan assisted'?

    Grant,

    There's a wealth of information about this to be found reading through furnace manufacturer installation instructions and B vent installation instructions. Not as fun as a novel, but required reading for any home inspector. Scary...

    Darren, the answer is right under your nose...Stupidity
