Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Heating Systems Category: Furnaces

Problem: 

Furnace exhaust gases back-draft into the house.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Solution:

 

If you find that the exhaust gases of your furnace draft back into your house, most likely causing you to be nauseous, you will want to make sure you provide proper ventilation in your house from thereon out in an effort to prevent such a back-draft.

First and foremost, you should make sure, as may be applicable, that your furnace is equipped with an anti-back-draft damper, installed in the plenum of the furnace.  Without this damper, the gases may freely back-draft into the plenum of the furnace.

Another way to help prevent the back-draft is through a source of ventilation by simply cracking open your windows just a tad bit, and as applicable, the windows of your basement.

The above is just more of a temporary fix, whereas a more permanent fix would be to actually install a vent that would allow the exhaust gases of your furnace to be vented directly to the outside.

These are options that you may consider looking into when encountering the problem of the back-drafting of exhaust gases of your furnace.
