    please

    this is an american standard gas furnace i just had installed
    It vents outside through pvc pipe .

    when i run the air conditioner i noticed it does not vent outside
    and i need it to because i need better air for my asthma.
    the fan doesn t vent outside either

    how do I get the to exhaust outside? is it the wiring, the furnace, the thermostat?

    I believe what you have is a 90+ or condensing furnace, the PVC piping is for intake air and exhaust and has nothing to do with your A/C.
    Your A/C has supply registers it every room of your house and one whole house return or many of them around the house. The supply gives you cold air and the return brings back the warm air to the air handler where it is dehumidified cooled by the Evap coil and sent back out through the supply. It never goes outside but there are products that can help you with your allergies. Contact your HVAC guy and let him know of your problem and he'll help you out, a couple things are Electronic Air Filters and UV lights that kill mold, bacteria and just about any other Allergin.

    Good Luck!!!

    There is nothing wrong with your unit. The exhaust to to expel flue gasses produced when the burners are burning gas, there is no flue gasses with just the blower running or when the A?C is running.
