    Question:

    I could not find this in your Q&A section.

    How much distance should be maintained between the exterior sidewall direct vent of a gas fireplace and the nearest operable window?

    (I have heard codes restrict this to reduce the amount of flue gases recirculated into the house thru an open window.)




    Answer:

    The diagram that I have seen most calls for the following:
    12" in the US and Canada from the vent to the open part of the window or door. This should be detailed in the owners manual.
