    Hi Marc,

    If I remember correctly, 8 feet to a vertical wall. Can't remember operable windows. Too tired to look it up.

    I see the mechanical draft clearances. I even see where tankless water heaters maintain clearances to decks etc... But yea, I was interested in the termination to window / doors..Good to hear from you. hope all is good up there.... now go to bed..

    NFPA 54 12.7.2 Gas Vent Termination. The termination of gas vents
    shall comply with the following requirements
