Sidewall vent termination under eaves

Hello I was wondering if since a sidewall vent cannot terminate under a soffit is it accepted to vent under the eaves?

Welcome Bryan. Research a little on the difference between eaves and soffits. Eaves are the extension of the overhang of the roof from the exterior walls. The soffits are material used to fill in the gaps between the end of the eaves and the wall.

So based on your question, No the sidewall vent should vent higher than both. And of course what type of vent, for what purposes, etc,

Sidewall vent for what?


Not normally.
Furnace or water heater…?
Look up the manufacturers installation requirements.
