vents


So I understand what the straight through the roof vent is for, but what about the gooseneck style vents. I have them on all sides of the house down here in Florida. Are they plumbing vents? exhaust vents? roof vents?

Most likely just roof vents but without a picture it's anyone's guess.
Not sure why some places choose that style instead of a ridge vent.

Are the "goose neck" vents - "PVC"?

If they're on the side of the house then it's possible they're the intake and exhaust lines from a newer high-efficiency furnace. One's pulling in fresh air for combustion and the other's the outgoing exhaust.

Does this post start on the second page? Where are the pictures?

Is this the start of this post?

"So I understand what the straight through the roof vent is for, but what about the gooseneck style vents."

This looks like a response, not a question, that's why I ask.

Oh! We are playing GUESS WHAT THIS PIPE IS! I love that game!
