and do not common vent with any other
vented appliance or stove.
Warning: Failure to vent the exhaust
gases to the outside with sealed
stainless steel vent pipe (AL29-4C)
may result in dangerous flue gases
filling the space in which it is installed.

Vent material and specifications

Establish vent clearances that comply with the vent
manufacturer's specifications. In all cases follow local
Note: Listed thimbles or collars are necessary to pass
through wall and ceiling partitions. If the vent system
passes through combustible areas where the vent
clearance requirements cannot be maintained, it is
permissible to chase straight sections of sealed 3 inch
single wall vent through 4 inch (or greater) Type-B vent.
The distance to combustibles using this chase
technique is 1 inch (check local codes).
Warning: Type-B vent must never be
used as the actual exhaust vent system
for the appliance, because it is not gas
tight. This will create a serious health
hazard and void the warranty.
Vent lengths
The appliance should be located as close to the point
of termination as possible. The maximum vent length is
26 feet (8 m) with one 90 degree elbow. Subtract 2½
feet from the total vent length for each additional 90°
elbow used (a maximum of three 90° elbows are
6 720 608 263
permitted in the total vent length), or subtract 11/4
feet for every 45° elbow used. Horizontal sections of
vent must pitch upwards from heater ¼" for every foot
of horizontal length, to prevent the pooling of
condensate, and be supported at 4 foot intervals with
overhead hangers. See Table 2.
