furnace tech was out on Monday to correct a number of inspection issues. 

Cleaned the furnace, corrected venting (removing non-compliant tape and cut-ins), adding 100% outside combustion air (duct to outside instead of just sucking air through the tiny hole in the door), adding a drip pan under the water heater, disconnecting and capping an old gas line for a gas washer/dryer (instead of just a valve which can fail), and other things I’m sure I’m forgetting. 

Overall, we should be safer now though.

Progress photos below.  He was not able to fully finish Monday.  Is coming back out today.
