Converted from oil to natural gas recently.Had a high efficiency furnace installed with PVC intake/exhaust vents.Had the county out today for final inspection and failed.The intake/exhaust were within 12" of each other.Trying to figure out how someone didnt see this.Local reputable company who untill this was pointed ou thought did a good job.Haven't heard back from contractor maybe there is an explanation.

Bummer, theres a few clearances noted in the installation manual. IE , distances from windows, height off of ground, and distances apart.  The guy must not have paid attention to the manual.

That sucks. Good news is it should not be hard to fix. Something along the lines of cutting down the intake or extending the exhaust.

Look at the install instructions, with an approved termination kit many times they are no more than 2--3" apart.

I think the inspector screwed up, not the installer.
