Thats a negative draft furnace. So you'll need a power venter to vent it horizontal/side wall.

So I am guessing it would cost me around the same as changing liner ?

I guess he could go out the window & above the roof line Provided horizontal run isn't too long. Or, is he just wanting to terminate the horizontal run out the window ?

Before you spend a lot of $$ on chimney repairs you may want to get the heat exchanger carefully checked for cracks and popped compression rivets. Very high rate of failure on those. May fail soon. Your brother with the no chimney high efficiency furnace is better off.

So I got on the top of the house . Liner was broken like 2 meters from the top and squirrels nest and insulation was blocking it . I found big vacuum cleaner with long hose ,pulled it on top of the house and cleaned garbage from chimney . Than cleaned whatever fell at the bottom so it's working now. It should be ok for this winter and hopefully before next one comes I will have enough money to rebuild chimney and put new liner .

Thanks again for all the help .

Buy yourself 2 good CO Carbon monoxide detectors. Put 1 in the basement and 1 by your bedroom in case the chimney gets blocked again or collapses. Concerned about your safety. People die from that stuff, get brain damage and I know of a collapsed chimney incident where several people are in permanent comas.
