PVC gas vent rated pipe


I am doing renos in my basement and it was suggested that I install PVC pipe for future furnace replacement. I am able to follow directly out doors following the joists from the furnace. I just need to know what size pipe and what clearances are required from combustible surfaces.

What you may want to do is get some information on the furnace you will need, call a trusted HVAC company to do a heat loss on your home, get the proper sizing of the furnace for planning purposes, and a price to have it installed. That way you know more details and hopefully send some business the heating contractor's way. The size of the piping depends on the size of the furnace and length of run. Usually the piping is 2-3" pvc. But again you shoud get the proper information. Installing the pipe now is a good idea.

I agree installing pipe now fine.... as long as the pipe installed meets code.... and meets code when furnace installed....... we used to use pvc now we use 636...would be a shame to install wrong pipe
