Insulate or sleeve furnace exhaust


My HE Carrirer furnace was installed today. Exhaust / intake pipes seem to be 2 1/2" PVC through 2X10 rim and brick. Should these be sleeved? Is there a recommended clearance radius horizontally?

We had to cut back a shrub and my wife is ticked

Buy the wife a new ring. Your furnace is ok as is. If the bush had not been removed it would have died from the fumes which are dilute hydrochloric acid.

See Was that so hard?

Chicks never understand the aesthetics of the mechanical. It's a guy thing.

One of the most beautiful things is the world is a 440 hemi with a six pack being pulled from a '73 Challenger .

It's OK, but I Never liked that body style too much.. I had a '73 Roadrunner when I got out of the Army in 1973. Imagine my disappointment when i heard the word "Catalytic Converter" for the first time. It had a 340 Cuin engine that was a total dog.

HA! My E250 360 van is faster with a full load than that old PIS was.

You got any thing fast parked in the drive?

Just long gone dreams. I always liked the early Chargers and Roadrunners... Super Bees, 4 years in auto shop in highschool we had mid 60's pony cars Mustangs Camaros and Barracudas. Small blocks, big blocks and HEMIS, Mopar was very respected... All the ones I wished I'd bought and kept..and never did. Rich man's toys now.
It's out of my range still but there something new I like. LEXUS ISF, F is for FUJI race track, seriously fast...and nice throaty rumble
