Forced Hot Air question

HenryT Member Posts: 128
Hi everyone. I have a concern and I hope someone can chime in.

My parents home is a two family house that heats uses forced hot air (gas).

My question is, when the heat is off (summer time) is the exhaust tube suppose to feel warm to the touch?

I am referring to the pipe or alumnium tube that connects the unit to outside the house.

Thanks in advance

    If the furnace has a standing pilot then it’s possible the pipe would be warm to the touch.  It might not be a bad idea to have tech look at it so you can have  the peace of mind  that it’s nothing else.
