Ok, so I have looked a number of places online for horizontal clearances to a window spec. I have found:
9"horizontal clearance for stoves under 50K BTU and 1' over 50K BTU. This is listed on LL's website and is just below the listing for SWG 4HDs power venter
This is consistent with what my AK dealer told me today on the phone. He opened the AK PV box and looking at the installation manual it states the same 9" or 1' depending on your heater BTU's. He read me the P/N for this PV and it was Field Controls SWG 463956401.(SWG 4HDs)
I have also read that these clearances are for Direct Vent and not Power Vent, further defining a DV system as:
"sealed combustion". Aren't most coal stokers sealed combustion?
Other places I have looked were 4' horizontally to window. Is there anybody out there that has had a PV system installed at 9" or 1' from a window and had it pass inspection?
I don't really want to buy and install a SS chimney so I want to exhaust(no pun intended
) all other options before pursuing this chimney thing.
Thanks for any input.
