flue pipe extended


hi i have been having a difficult time having to find someone that can extend my flue pipe up on the roof for my heating system last year snow storms because the flue is so short caused me to have no heat 2 different times because the snow was over the pipe i was told being the furnace has a safety feature if the flue is blocked the furnace just blows cool air so no carbon minoxide gets in the home it seems many of the contractors i called seem to avoid this kind of job but i had a contractor come here order a part spend nearly a half hour on the roof trying to put on the part he simply couldnt do the job told me he had the wrong part, could the problem be I own a remanufactured home with a miller gas furnance which many contractors might not be familiar with the miller furnance or any ideas where i can be looking for a contractor thank you

hi thank you for the reply my fuel supplier refered me to someone that handles chimneys after contacting 2 of them locally they said they dont do that type of work, I am starting to think this is something thats just difficult to do or it takes a contractor thats very experience in doing.

Reman homes are a unique animal and do require specialized parts. The furnace fllue and the furnace are made for only each other and you can't just add regular extension's.

Google Nordyne and go to manufactured housing or try this link

Yep, that is a concentric pipe within a pipe type chimney and will ONLY work with the approved Miller chimney. Combustion air goes in the middle pipe and exhaust goes out the outer pipe or vice versa. CANNOT just add any extra pipe or it will be dangerous and void your house ins/ fire rating of furnace etc.
