Lincoln Barrière Model # FLO 115-DR Direct Vent Kit install...?

In 2020 we had an issue with our furnace and the company installed a direct vent kit in our Lincoln Barrière Model # FLO 115-DR. We have had no issues with heat or with the furnace, and it was cleaned yearly by the same company. Last week we had a different company came to look at the furnace and they said that this type of vent for that furnace is not up to code. The company that installed it says it is certified by their parts supplier and acceptable to use on that type of furnace. Can anyone say for sure if this type of furnace can safely have this direct vent kit? Is it up to code?

Welcome to the forums.

I've never seen a Lincoln Barrière furnace down here.
I'm guessing they're pretty much a Canadian brand.

I can't find helpful info on your model furnace.
Not sure anyone here can answer your question on the direct vent kit.
I would check with another service company.
You could check with your local authority having jurisdiction.... inspector.

I can tell you this.... it's rare to see a thru the wall direct vent kit on an oil burner.

In my travels I haven't seen any...... they do make aftermarket fan assisted direct vent kits for furnaces.
It looks like they may also be used for an oil burning furnace.

BUT..... it uses a power assisted inline fan. Tjerlin is the typical manufacturer of them.
