      Answer This Question

      A:  Isaacl, Thank you for the question. The unit needs 1 foot of vertical venting before it can turn horizontal. So there would need to be a foot above the blower. Height of the heater with the blower attached is 71-7/8. Heater requires 83 and 7/8th inches of space to be installed.
