Need exhaust Help??


I am doing my garage heater right now and ran into a snag. I went to go out the side wall of my garage and where the vent would be is into the soffit... I found a new location that I can get it straight out 24" past my eaves, but it will be 24" from my house. Is this OK?

Can someone help?

No. Take it out the roof like it's supposed to be.

If the heater is approved for side wall vent and you have the correct kit then it can be done. Any way to take it another side? I think the wind is going to swirl in that spot and the moisture laiden & acidic exhaust will cause problems with the garage and house.

It has to slope upward. You could lower the heater 5".

Going to try that, lowering it 6 or so. I was trying to avoid that so that the heater doesn't become a head obstacle in the garage. thanks for your help, I will see if I have the room.

Marty, thanks for your help.. I got the unit lowered another 7 inches and everything works fine going out the side now. It is still about 7.4ft off the ground so the clearance is still good and the exhaust is proper.
