does this unit vent out the back, or the top

Asked by: Nick
Vents out the top from a 6" oblong vent. A 5" vent will flatten to fit.

50,000 BTU/hr Forsaire Counterflow Top-Vent Wall Furnace Natural Gas is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.

On that note, not a single mounting tab to be found. I had to drill the cabinet and attach L brackets. Everything came in the box. The power cord, thermostat and wiring. It required a larger vent. Vent size requirement is at minimum 5". I tried to reuse the 4" inch but it keep shutting down. Gas supply is on the right side. My old one was on the left. So I had to cut an access hole on the left side to install the gas line via a flex line. But this unit heats my shop is record time. The blower really moves the air.

Check availability of B vent pipe and oval to round adaptors needed for this heating unit. Home Depot does not list an acceptable adaptor on line, and the local store doesn't carry in stock B vent pipe,. You will most likely need to source your vent pipe from some other suppliers. The heater is acceptable.

We purchased this unit to replace a thirty year old one we installed in a addition. This unit was the same dimensions as the last one. It installed quickly and only needed a few different install parts. I would highly recomend this product. It is quiet and efficient. Nice looking also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job and more! This furnace replaced a 35,000 BTU gravity flow unit. We had remodeled and opened up the floor plan to a great room concept, so upgrading to a 50,000 BTU unit with a circulating fan was the right way to go. This one really does the job! We replaced the included thermostat with a program-able thermostat, but the included thermostat works fine for what it is. I am especially pleased with the circulating fan. It blows the hot air out the bottom, which is a real bonus. So the floor area is the first to get the heat. The rooms warm up very quickly. The fan is a little noisy, but all in all, it's well worth the extra investment of adding electricity for the fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed. When our wall heater went out, was glad to be able to find replacement online. Ordering was easy, and free delivery to our home was included. We had friend with knowledge of heating and air conditioning install and saved several hundreds of dollars over previous estimates we had received. Install was not difficult and went smoothly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Heater I replaced a very old furnace with this one. The unit arrived in perfect condition, was easy to install, and worked fine. My only comments are that the thermostat wire supplied is way too short (15') to reach any realistic location for mounting the thermostat away from the heater. The manufacturer should supply no less than 25' to reach (how much more would that cost?). I had to go back to the store to pick up more wire. Also, the fan motor was a bit stiff at first light-off. I oiled the bearings and that freed it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Replaced an ancient wall furnace with this Forsaire. It provides wonderful heat. Very happy with this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality and poor shipping This unit is basically the same furnace built 30 years ago with reduced quality. The old burner was a tough cast piece the new one is thin stainless steel. It does not have electronic start and it has no provisions for supply air to the fire. I assumed that in 30 years these improvements would have been made. Also the unit was damaged in shipment. I made it work, but I would not purchase another Williams product.
