VIDEO: Holes in Furnace Flue Pipe!

Inspecting the furnace at a recent home inspection in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, I discovered several holes in the flue pipe. This is an obvious safety issue as combustion byproducts are no longer fully contained within the metal flue pipe. Replacement of corroded and deteriorated flue pipe was advised, together with fully servicing the furnace by a qualified HVAC contractor.
