Vacaville, CA – M&G DuraVent expands their PolyPro approvals list with the addition of Comfortmaker’s EC 97 and VC 97 Furnace. Comfortmaker has approved the use of PolyPro single-wall, concentric, and flex for the EC 97 and VC 97 furnace.

The Comfortmaker® SoftSound® EC 97 and VC97 Variable-Speed Modulating Gas Furnace featuring the Observer™ communicating system is designed to take any home to a new level of comfort and efficiency. The SoftSound EC 97and VC 97 delivers consistent heat and overall comfort. When paired with a compatible thermostat, the modulating heat system operates at lower heat levels and automatically modulates to the higher heat production if temperatures drop.

PolyPro is an engineered system specifically designed for venting heating appliances. Gasketed joints require no primers or adhesives and easily assemble in seconds with just a splash of water. Terminations are designed for superior performance in poor environmental conditions. PolyPro is tested and listed to the ULC S636 standard in Canada and rated as a Class IIA, IIB, and IIC vent system. PolyPro offers the only double-wall polypropylene flex in the U.S., making it durable for relining masonry chimneys, factory-built chimneys, and useful for relining B-vent pipe when retrofitting it to use as a chase. PolyPro is superior in performance and easier to install than PVC or CPVC pipe, which were designed for irrigation, not venting. PolyPro has been successfully venting appliances in Europe for over 15 years.
