I've got a hanging heater and am trying to figure out the best way to vent. Can this be vented through the gable wall and then through a chimney pipe up over the roof? The heater is in the front corner of my garage and I don't want a chimney going out the front of the roof if I can avoid it. It has an oval vent, 4" x 5.5". Do I need an adapter or can I squeeze a round pipe over the oval? I have looked for a manual for this unit but have been unsuccessful. Any advice will be appreciated! Thanks

I tried their website and could not find the manual. I emailed them today for a copy- hopefully they will send me one. I want to exit the vent horizontally through the side wall then connect to a chimney pipe outside the garage. Thanks

Found the manual, I am going to vent it horizontally through the wall then up over the roof on the outside of the building. It has a 5" oval, do you think it would hurt to downsize the vent to a 4 inch chimney?

If the furnace breech is 5 inch, then code prohibits reducing the size of the chimney to 4".
