I am concerned about the safety of having a furnace that sends exhaust out the side of a basement wall. There is new construction next door from me. Their furnace exhaust is pointed right at my house - about 8 feet away. When the furnace is on we see the "smoke" billowing around between the houses. How safe is this exhaust? If my windows were opened (vent is pointed right at my window) would this exhaust be dangerous? My village says it's ok - but I really wonder. Is there any danger of exhaust when the air conditioner is on? Can anyone help?

There are clearance charts on all vented appliances. These charts detail how close to walls, windows (different clearances for windows that open vs. windows that do not), doors, etc.

I would imagine that local codes would have caught any issues before this was approved.

How close is the neighbors house from you?
