Vent/Flue Pipe

Vent/flue pipe can be secured to the vent/flue coupling using the
rubber coupling and worm gear hose clamps provided with this
furnace. See "Standard Connections" illustration. The rubber
coupling allows separation of the vent/flue pipe from the furnace
during servicing. Combustion air and vent piping should be
routed in a manner to avoid contact with refrigerant lines,
metering devices, condensate drain lines, etc. If necessary,
clearances may be increased by utilizing two 45º long-sweep
elbows and creating an "S" joint to provide additional space at
connection locations. This joint can be rotated on the fitting to
establish maximum clearance between refrigerant lines, metering
devices, condensate drain lines, etc. This joint is the equivalent of
one 90º elbow when considering elbow count.

NOTES:
Do not use other commercially available "no hub connectors"
due to possible material conflicts.
The vent/flue pipe can also be secured using a PVC or ABS
elbow or coupling using the appropriate glue (see "Materials
and Joining Methods").
For nondirect vent installations, a minimum of one 90° elbow
should be installed on the combustion air intake coupling to
guard against inadvertent blockage.
Combustion Air Pipe—Direct Vent Installations
On upflow units, secure the combustion air intake pipe directly to
the air intake coupling. On counterflow units secure the
combustion air intake pipe to the air intake coupling using the
rubber coupling and worm gear hose clamps provided with the
unit. The counterflow rubber coupling allows service removal of
air intake piping internal to the furnace blower compartment.
NOTE: Because of probable material conflicts, do not use other
commercially available "no hub connectors." The combustion air
intake pipe can also be secured directly to the counterflow unit
air intake pipe coupling.
Combustion Air Pipe—Nondirect Vent Installations
A minimum of one 90° elbow should be installed on the
combustion air intake coupling to guard against inadvertent
blockage.

Alternate Furnace Connections

If the standard locations are undesirable for a specific installation,
alternate side panel locations are available for both combustion
air inlet and vent/flue pipe connections. These locations may be
of particular benefit to upright upflow installations requiring
additional access to an A coil, or to upright counterflow
installations requiring additional access to a filter or electronic air
cleaner, or to horizontal installations desiring vent/flue (and
combustion air intake) piping run vertically from the side of the
cabinet.
NOTE: Standard and alternate locations can be combined (for
example, an installation may use the standard combustion air
intake location but use the alternate vent/flue location or vice
versa), if needed.
