96% efficient boiler vent termination

I'm at the end of my installation of my Rinnai E110c combi-boiler.

I've read through the book and they list all the clearances from windows, doors etc. What they don't mention is if there has to be a certain distance of protrusion from the house structure itself.

Is there any minimum?

I'm exiting with a two pipe system.

I call the vertical risers " candy canes " because of the shape. High enough to be above the snow and far enough apart not to feed each other.

Can they be against the house ( so if you looked at it while looking at the house, you'd see two up side down j's) or should they be pointing away towards the yard? Does it matter?

That model only has one exhaust... There is no air intake. What do you mean?

Smile parallel option

The Rinnai E110C comes from the factory with the adapters and option to vent it with a two pipe PVC system. Instead of the concentric two pipe set up, you can pop out a 3" plug and convert it in just a couple minutes. Very simple and smart on Rinnai's part. No cutting, just plug in o-ring style adapters to accept 3 inch PVC.

They do not mention it but 6" is normal to be outside the turbulent flow area of wind hitting the wall.
