Thread: Venting methods

  1. #1

    Venting methods

    Hi, I am evaluating quotes for the conversion to natural gas. When potential contractors are performing site evaluations they are recommending going up over the foundation with the venting. Is this practice recommended or should it be avoided (adding additional 90 degree angles to clear the foundation wall) vs going directly through the foundation wall at a higher cost.

    Any thoughts are appreciated

    Thanks

    As long as the manufactures specs allow for the elbows then there is no problem with installing it that way. Very common way of doing it.

    Besides, foundation walls are real hard.............

    Good luck
    Its a good Life!

    usually it is best to get up over the foundation wall to get the termination high enough off the ground so snow does not block it.
