a friend of mine is purchasing a home with a really jury= rigged oil
burner vent system consisting of a single lined 6 inch flue pipe
starting at the warm air furnace, in the basement, and passing thru
the floor of the corner of his living room into a masonary opening
that hangs off a steel supported red brick chimney with a flue liner,
at the ceiling level of the second floor.
In this single pipe system are three t's for wood stoves, on the first
floor that have been removed and taped over with some sort of aluminum
my suggestion is to direct vent the oil burner into metalbestos pipe
to the outside, thru the basement wall and , to a height above the
roof approx 8 feet, meeting code for the top of the vent.
any ideas as to options such as masonary vs metalbestosis?
