Question about Heating & Cooling
The furnace is being installed into a doube-wide mobile home. It's missing the flue pipe(s) and roof cap(s) and I don't know what kind I need to buy. The outer flue piping diamerter is 8" and the inner piping is 5". Does the pipe have to be insulated, or is it just two pipes with one inside the other, with roof caps? I can't find anything about flue piping for mobile home gas furnaces on the web. There are no Intertherm Nordyne dealers in Alaska, and the company's website only has a "dealer locator" which is worthless, or it says a customer can WRITE them and gives their snail mail address -- unbelievable. I can't afford a "heating company installation" with all their extra fees and mark-ups. If I could buy the flue piping and roof caps, I could get someone in the mobile home park to install it.
The flue is just 1 pipe inside another, no insulation. But has lil support brackets holding the inner pipe in its place, centered to the outer pipe. I googled Nordyne Flue Pipe, and it is available online. And HELLO from the heart of Texas! Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I had my original "low"
Hello there, Usually the flue size is determined by the BTU which is generated by the unit. Considering that your unit produces between 35,000 and 40,000 BTU per hour the 2" Flue is okay. Although if you can replace it a 3" will do the job better but the 2" will not cause any harm if left in place as the quantity of BTU generated is equivalent to 2" of flue.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.
