Default Boiler Blower Assembly Air Intake

Hi,
I have a Bradford White with a blower assembly for power venting. I noticed that the assembly has a fresh air intake on the rear as well..so its actually venting the fumes from the burner + conditioned indoor air. Does anyone know why it is designed to work like that? Seem wasteful to exhause indoor air that's been conditioned (cooled, heated etc.).

Thanks.

Read the instructions for this site post an introduction. We don't give out diy info. Your question sounds like a do it yourself question. If you are a plumber learn to read instructions.

Perhaps the teacher needs to read the question better. The exhaust from the burner obviously needs venting...but the blower assembly has an additional clean air intake in the rear that it mixes with the dirty air prior to venting.

I can only assume it is to cool the hot exhaust to avoid pvc pipe melting ..but my HVAC has a exhaust inducer as well but doesn't appear to need a clean air intake for mixing with exhaust.

Apologies if I missed the introduction, I'll go over the rules again.

This isn't a DIY question as there is no DIY happening. Boiler is new and was installed by a professional. I have every reason to believe it is working as designed. My question was just to satisfy a curiosity.

P.s. I'm not a plumber and did read the manual prior to posting.
