Venting a Furnace (Creatively)...
This is my first post and I would really appreciate your support. I am installing a new AC Unit and Furnace. Unfortunately, my previous unit vented through the chimney while at the same time the AC and Furnace duct work also goes throught the same chimney. I believe this is illegal. But if it is possible I would like to keep the duct work in the chimney and find a way to vent the furnace somewhere else. Is it possible to vent the furnace out the wall? Any other ideas?

Then you'll need approval from the historical society to side wall vent it.
It will require a power vent if its an 80% furnace.
If its a 90%+ then it can be direct vented out the wall, if you have the clearances.
What efficiency furnace is it.
I haven't purchased the furnace yet. But, if it is true that I can vent through the wall with a 90% efficient furnace I would go that way.
Thanks for the reply!
