Water heater vent

Ask a Plumber

I want to use the space created for the chimney when I switched to hi efficiency furnace. However the water heater stack went up the same way. Can I vent a standard gas  water heater ( in the basement) out the side of the house at the floor level? Thanks in advance.

    No, in this situation what we would do is vent the furnace out the side of the building and run a chimney liner for the HWT. I would suggest having a professional out to make sure this is done to code.
