insulation tape


Sounds like the air supply to each should be separate. If in same room, they may need an outside air source. Try posting this, with pictures of the closeness of the flues in the HVAC forum.

"oh, and asfor the unfinished ceiling, that shouldnt matter because sheetrock is a rating of 50 perm, right?" ---- yes, for permeability rating. It doesn't really have to do with lack of air to the appliances, does it? Sorry I can't help you more, John.
Be safe, Gary

insulation tape


so you dont think it has anything to do with my sealing insulation upstairs? to be honest with you i really dont feal lioke taping al the seems! because technicly if i seal off my mechanical room the down draft prob should go away. i just thaught this was the wrong solution. to be honest with you i dont really know the "brearhability" of a house is supposed to work. thanks for the input.
also is there anyway i can transfer my last post to hvac withouthaving to retype it all, thats a lot of typing for me!

I tried to inform them..... but I don't know exactly how.

MODERATORS........................................ ... read previous post.

Here is my County's HVAC on ducts, air supply and such: http://www.mybuildingpermit.com/Insp...0checklist.pdf To give you an idea.
