Re: Miller Gas CMF2 combustion venting issue

Yes, the roof jack was replaced with the new furnace. However, this was done prior to my purchase of this home. I think the previous owner paid $1800 for all. Now as for the combustion venting....I did that. It's the 2nd winter this year and it has been perfect. You cannot have such a large opening,...

Nordyne Telescoping Roof Jack

Quick question: Is is acceptable to "cut" (professionally at machine shop), a Nordyne telescoping roof jack? The one that was supplied with the furnace is way to long even in the fully closed position. (Cannot exchange...too much time has elapsed). If cut cleanly and evenly at the furnace side, it s...

Re: Attic insulation??

attic2.jpg Did not get to this insulation project last fall, but will be doing the attic strictly from the gable ends. (I already had the full ridge vent installed last fall). It's a 4/12 roof, trusses 16" apart. Anybody with additional insight? I recently read that some people "FILL" the entire at...

wifi thermostat and I need a "C" wire

I have a Miller CMF 2 80 gas furnace. 3 years old. It has a UT electronic controls 1018 series module. My thermostat wiring is just 2 wires. How can I best add a "C" common wire to supply the new thermostat? I notice that there is a "C" connection on the control module...can that be used? Thanks muc...

Re: Miller Gas CMF2 combustion venting issue

Well, I closed off the vent access duct from under the home. I drilled a hole in the floor outside/next to the furnace cabinet and inserted a piece of PVC pipe through to exit the belly. I then attached the combustion air hose directly to this pipe and it works PERFECTLY! The cold draft from the ope...

Attic insulation??

I have an opportunity to inspect and add blown in fiberglass insulation with a the new ridge vent system I'm having installed. I will blow in from the center peak opening before being covered. Home is a 14X70 with joisted attic and shingled roof. I believe it's 3 or 4/12 pitch. FLAT interior ceiling...

Re: Vinyl siding issue

Thanks guys! I like the idea of the added wood strip to the 2X4 stud and I believe that the 1/2 foam could be supported OK. I have been trying to do everything correct and right with this home. I have been so frustrated that I have discovered so many "shortcuts" and cheap repairs. I just tear it all...

Re: Vinyl siding issue

Yep...that's the issue then. What do you think about adding a 16" piece of OSB all the way around?

Re: Vinyl siding issue

It seems that the steel strap goes the whole way around the house , (box or no box) and that the recept wiring kinda circles the home behind it.

Vinyl siding issue

Can anyone offer some insight on how to remedy a bad vinyl siding install? Background: The house had been resided with vinyl 4" lap over 1/2 " foam sheathing. I noticed a bulge at the 3rd, 4" section up from the bottom. (That level is a nailing flange). It is not adequately secured to the house at t...

Re: Miller Gas CMF2 combustion venting issue

Yes...this is an 80 percent, but I feel that there is enough air exchange elsewhere. I'm going to provide this furnace it's own private vent I guess. The cold from under the furnace is just way tooooo much! It chills the house in short order. It's obviously from the knockouts. I will keep you posted...

Re: Miller Gas CMF2 combustion venting issue

Well, I plan to use some 2" PVC piping to facilitate the venting. I'm curious though, how is the typical fresh combustion air actually set up in most of these gas furnaces?

Re: Miller Gas CMF2 combustion venting issue

I do understand about the outside air need for combustion. What I'm trying to do is stop the cold air infiltration at the base of the furnace, by adapting an alternative method, (tighter sealed) way to get air in. Is the air intake hose just supposed to lay in the furnace cabinet and draw air from t...

Miller Gas CMF2 combustion venting issue

Hi I have a 2 year old Miller gas furnace. It was a replacement for an old Miller oil burner. The furnace runs fine and the ductwork for the heat has all been inspected, sealed and insulated. The problem is with the venting for the combustion air. Currently there is a combustion air duct that extend...

Re: Ceiling insulation question

I'd say they are about 12" X12". I would like to maybe make them bigger anyway.
