I am getting a hieff furnace installed and that will require 2 vents to be run outside. right now i have a vent from the hot water tank. it comes out of the wall and using 2 elbows, it snorkles up. i assume this is done to get it above grade and snow. its very ugly.
so when the guy does the furnace i'd prefer if he can put the vents in some nicer looking way. the vents stick out over the patio so its an area of the yard thats in use. so i want it to look nice.
i suggested a concentric kit but he said it cant be dont because its not high enough above grade. i get that. do you guys have any suggestions and/or pictures of similar installs you can share?
i looked at my neighbour's vents for his hieff trane they are uuuuggly. too bad about the concentric kit not working. the amount of effort and cost to run the vents through the inside wall and then out, to get the height, might cost too much. i'll ask how much. but an outside solution would be preferable.
