Default Question about venting..(pics) (Beacon/Morris)

I just recently purchases a 75k Beacon/Morris heater and looking to have it installed pretty quick. . . I have included three pics of what I have.


Picture #1 is the corner where I'm looking to install the heater (minus the speaker of course!). I'm looking to run the vent horizontally out the left (east side of the garage).

Picture #2 is a quick shot I just took for this post tonight. The circle is obviously where I'm (maybe) going to run the vent out and some dimensions that pertain.

Picture #3 is my house courtesy of good 'ol Google Maps and the red "X" where the out vent will be.

...

My questions are... Will this work in regards to running a horizontal pipe out? If so, how far does it have to stick out from the side of the house? I have a concern if it's too far, the bedroom on the north side of the house will look out the window and see a pipe stickin' out the garage (room is on north side of house facing red 'X').


Any feedback would be great! I would like to keep it horizontal as I really do not feel comfortable running it thru my roof and already have my attic flooring in and...crowded...

Also, just remembered! After searching for EVER, I couldn't find any good pictures of the outside of the garage for these horizontal installs. What kind of end caps can be used... Can something similar to a fireplace be used? I have seen the smaller sizes square caps for fireplaces...

Thanks!

I have the exact same Furnace.
I ran the vent straight out the back, through the Back of my Garage, about a foot away from the siding and then straight up past the roof line.
Check your local codes on how far up past the roof line...I have heard about some as much as 3 feet.
And of course, add a cap.
Mine works perfectly for the last few years.

..Do you have to run out then up...? Or, can you just run out 12 inches and cap it....?

If you run straight out, you may have to extend it out too far to meet code.
Thats why I ran it up.
Part of that was due to a window location.

The vent for mine is in a similar position as you want yours. They say it has to extend out past the overhang. I've got pics on here of my install. can also see pics from the link in my sig.
