AbstractAt low rates of combustion, during mild, calm weather the relation between chimney draft and house pressures become important. The author has determined that draft failure will occur if the mean flue gas temperature in the chimney falls below a value that depends on the neutral zone level. Under the most unfavorable conditions, excluding the effect of wind, draft failure takes place when the mean flue gas temperature in the chimney is less than the mean house temperature.
