The masonry chimney may have to be tile or metal lined
before the insertion of the gas vent pipe; check local
codes for clarification. You may not vent any other fuel
burning appliances into any free space remaining in the
chimney. The vent terminator must extend at least 3 feet
(0.9 m) above where the chimney meets the roofline and
at least 2 feet (0.6 m) higher than any vertical wall or
similar obstruction within 10 feet (3.1 m). The top of the
chimney must be sealed to prevent rain water or other
elements from entering the chimney.
Exterior masonry chimneys
Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code and consult a local
venting HVAC contractor. Not recommended in cold
climates.
3.6.6

Horizontal terminations

• For horizontal vent runs less than 5 linear feet, the
entire vent run must pitch down to termination 1/4"
per foot to eliminate the danger of rain from entering
the venting system.
• The exhaust vent must terminate immediately once it
penetrates the outside wall.
• An approved vent terminator must be used. See
Table 4 for known approved horizontal vent
terminations.
• Install an additional condensate drain (not supplied)
if the total straight vent length is greater than 5 feet
or if the exhaust vent pipe passes through an
unconditioned space.
• Terminating the intake air piping above the exhaust
termination is not recommended.
• Fig. 17 and table 6 show the required clearances for
the vent termination. Follow local codes if more
stringent.
