I have a Williams 50K BTU Forsaire wall unit (top vent) furnace and I have a venting dilemma. I would like to vent this unit out the back wall of the room vs. through the roof if possible.
What would be the issue (if any) to take the 6" oval pipe from the top of the unit and terminate it into a 6" round T fitting (90 degree angle) and just shoot it out the wall with a wall vent cap?
This would take less than 2 feet of flue to accomplish and would look aesthetically much better than punching a hole in the roof about 18" from the gutter and having it stick straight up like a sore thumb.
With the 2’ above anything in a 10’ radius rule would mean I would need an eyesore of a vent, sticking about 6’ above the roof.
The other issue is that this on a 1 story addition and the outside wall of the main house (2 story) is 8 feet from where the furnace is going so the vent going straight up for 6 feet will stick the vent at eye level of the upstairs window.
There MUST be a better way?!
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Note: Placement of the furnace in the room in relation to the main house is non-negotiable.
