Ok, Im a newbie so bear with me. I just bought a home with my gas furnace venting directly out, through the foundation, out into the front of the house. It come out of a 3 inch vent pipe angled slightly upwards. The problem is, its killing my landscape in front of it. I dont know if its the carbon monoxide or just the shear heat. I would like to use adjustable aluminume to route the steam down to the side of the house but have a few questions:

A) doesnt the main outlet of steam ( carbon monoxide have to be aimed slightly up)?
B) I have to use an elbow to redirect the steam. How long of an extention can I use after that before I have danger of that carbon monoxide not getting out?

Thanks!

Let me ask a stupid question because I am confused. Is the existing flue PVC or metal. Do you know the efficiency of your furnace?

Its metal, I dont really know the efficency. So far what I did was "T" it off so the brunt of the blast isnt hitting all of the landscape.
