Step 4: Venting Outside

Picture of Venting Outside

We chose to have a unit that vented to the outside rather than recirculate into the house. So, it was either backwards or straight up. Our roof was in bad shape and I didn't want to chance creating another leak, so I decided to pipe it out the brick...or so was my intention until I ran into a supporting structure for our house. Woof. Thankfully, I had placed toggle bolts in such positions that I was able to skirt the beam and take out much of the vent's framing and still have all needs met. There are better ways to cut a hole out of brick, but hey, I ain't no professional, and this worked just fine and dandy.
