snow and induced draft heating


either it be a boiler or a furnace alway make it a habit to check the supply and discharged on those pipes from the outside... make the family aware in keeping it clear.just one more thing to check if you have no heat during a snow storm with the pressure switch picking up any retriction or blockage

Snow, what is that? It would have to get at least four feet deep, to get to the intake on my house. Worst thing would be icing in those areas that are colder right now, but where is it colder? We are getting into the 50's today, so bring on the warm weather.

snow and induced draft heating


We've finally got our first snow of the season. Minus 1 and 2" of snow and you can taste the driving fear out there.
Just wanted to say we've had a few DIY postings about snow ball blocked intakes so even the height of the intake doesn't guarentee it's clear.

With the exception of the work I do and the past work of Uncle Clover, alot of the combustion and exhaust terminations I have seen were never above snowline.

Customers always insist that the terminations be kept out of sight.

Lucky for me my customers allow tech specs to trump aesthetics.
