|In response to Re: Pilot out by wind - turbine top?|
: We live in a windy area in New Mexico. Four to five times during the year the pilots on the furnace and water heater will go out during a high wind. The vent pipes are seperate and have the conventional flat topped vent topper.
: Are there any turbine type tops for these smaller vent pipes and would this work? Any suggestions- I'm afraid we'll be on vacation for a real cold snap- have the pilots go out and have the pipes freeze.
There are several different brands of vent tops available for standard 3 and 4 inch vent pipes. each brand has a different style. They are all supposed to prevent the problem you are having.
I got mine at home depot and have no problems, don't recall the brand. We don't have the consistant winds like NM but ocasionaly have winds just as high.
