Having a fresh air vent to the furnace

My home is somewhat bigger than most average homes.

  • When it comes to maintaining my home there is a lot of cleaning and projects that I would like to have completed.

However during the winter time there isn’t much that I can accomplish especially when the climate that I live in tends to have freezing cold temperatures and a lot of snow. That’s why during the winter time I have a lot of indoor projects, such as cleaning my home and making sure that all my major appliances are up to date. Just recently I have installed a fresh air vent to my furnace. I believe that having fresh air in my home is important to living in a clean and healthy environment. However since we live in a very cold area it seems like the fresh air vent drags in a lot of cold air that offsets the heat that the furnace is trying to produce for our home. I want to ask my HVAC technician if my installation of the fresh air duct was a smart move. Instead of giving me false information, he wanted to set up an appointment within the next few days and take a look at it hands on. The reason for this is that a fresh air vent to a furnace is a serious subject and that sometimes a fresh air vent that is not not installed correctly could let in carbon monoxide into the home. I am looking forward to hearing what my HVAC technician says, in hopes that I have installed it correctly and that it is something that is useful for my home.
