Gas furnace vented through chimney

angelicbutterfly30February 15, 2012

I just switched to natural gas from oil. We had a new furnace put in and it was vented through the chimney. We now have two white pvc pipes about 2 foot long sticking out of our chimney and it looks hideous. Is this really necessary or is it possible to cut it down or something?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Sounds as though you had a high efficient furnace installed- that's the upside.

The downside is, they used your chimney to run the intake and exhaust. They should have run them out a sidewall if possible.

No. you can't cut them. Did they tell you what the plan was when you purchased?
