Furnace draft

What is a good number reading for a furnace draft. Old system with old ductwork was -.01. New thermopride with new ductwork and a more straight smoke pipe now reads -.04 at idle.

get other quotes, that is pretty high for most cases. lining the chimney will avoid unnecessary air infiltration and protect the integrity of the chimney.
