I have the lift installed, waiting for the garage door modifications and heater -both this Thursday
another lift shot.
The garage door track & opener modifications and the heater are done. Doing blown in insulation and sheet rock prep for painting on Monday.
I do have a question, how is the exhaust from the heater routed?
You can't see it but it exits the back of the unit, goes around the corner and out the side wall -nice because it doesn't mess with my roof.
Does the exhaust from the furnace at least have some upward pitch to it so the exhaust flows outside versus filling the garage with carbon monoxide?
Actually just the opposite is required. The vent is installed with a pitch of 1/4" drop per 1' vertical,
This is a power vented unit, like a natural gas furnace or hot water heater, and they want to be sure that condensation moves away from the unit.
One of the things that I really liked when I did some research was that the Reznor UDAP has Certification for units "Approved for Installation in Residential Garages".
Kickass!! I may have to look into one of those for my garage. Where in CNY are you, where did you get it and was it reasonably priced?
I am near Syracuse NY and I had it installed by a heating contractor, so the installed price meant they ran all of the natural gas lines, they ran a separate circuit line to the breaker box, installed a programable thermostat and installed all double walled exhaust line -which kicked it up to about $2,800.00.
I believe that the unit itself is about $900.00 on Ebay, plus shipping and I don't know how much all of the installation materials cost, but even with the thermostat, maybe $400.00 - $500.00?
So you can probably do it for about 1/2 what I paid if you do it yourself. There were 2 guys on the installation and they worked from about 8:30 -5:30 and they seemed pretty busy the whole time -I was here because I work from home.
I'm outside Rochester. I think I'll look into one of those heaters for my garage. Thanks for the info.
