You have to have some duct work.....even if its just a very tall plenum with sevral registers in it. As far as the LP goes, you must maintain at least 15" wc in and 11"wc at the manifold.

what size furnace is this, btu ? double wall bvent (chimny) you run up thru ceiling and out roof . keep a min of 1 " clearance from all combustable material, wood,sheetrock ect,, buy registers, one on each side and one in the front ,place high so its not gonna blow in your face, dont go to small with the registers or the units high limet will cut out. propane preasure feeding the furnace should be at a set preasure. and is allways adjusted and checked at furnace first start up. because the furnace is moved to a new location with a differant propane set up.i would check the system.

Well my son brought the furnace over today not a lennox but a TEMPSTAR 75000 btu my question is this the exhaust coming out is 3" my double wall pipe is 3 3/4" do I need an adapter the 3" part is flush with the furnace casing so the double wall can not drop over it??? and second question is shouldI cut a hole in the ceiling and put plenum in the attic and run flex trunks or just raise it to ceiling heigth and put registers in the plenum thanks mike :jester: :)

I don't think the garage size would really justify the ceiling registers, maybe for looks, but I don't think it's needed.
