Question about Air Conditioners
When gas heat unit installed the installer ran exhuast line out underneath a gas fireplace bump out pointing toward the ground. the air intake line comes out within 10" also pointing down. both where varied lengths. i cut them off at the same height. but it seems like while the exhaust is venting the intake line is taking the same air in. should something be changed ?
You need to make sureyou are at least 12" above ground with your termination if you live where you get accumulating snow levels. Next, your exhaust needs to be separated from your intake via a "goose neck"(straight pipe out of your house with 90 degree elbow pointed up then attach a 10" piece of pipe with a 90 degree elbow pointed out away from your house. The reason you want to keep them separated is that your intake will **** exhausted air into combustion chamber causing burner lift etc. due to no oxygen to properly burn. I usually put a 45 degree on intake so it is not so inviting to birds etc. Good Luck
