York side discharge unit

Anyone familiar with the York side discharge unit THD model. They are designed for under decks, and places where there isnt much clearance above. I put one in today exactly the way the directions say, and when I turned it on was surprise that the air flow went towards the back instead of the front. Its installed exactly the way the picture in the directions show. I also have a color flyer that shows it installed that way. Is this correct? You would think the air flow would be away from the building. There is 22" clearance off the back of the house.

    Very interesting

    You would think they'd blow out the front. I've never seen 1 in person and nothing online in the specs shows which way it blows. They say only 6" clearance needed to the building.

    I'm glad

    that it isn't just me who couldn't find in the directions which way this thing is suppose to go. The only thing I had to go by is the picture in the directions. I called the tech. dept. and the guy told me as long as the clearances are right, it will be ok. Yeak ok, good thing I put it 22" away and not 6" like the directions say it could be. The whole point I even bought this thing was because the conventional unit I was going to use would have blown warm air right in to the bottom of the deck. Basically this thing is doing the same thing because York sucks and can't even write installation instructions right.

    Why can't you tell air flow direction by the cond fan blade, just by looking at it?

    you would

    Think it was easy to tell, but it wasn't.

    The cond fan blade is a "propeller type" of blade?

    You can tell but on the swept wing blade, a tad harder since they aren't real deeply pitched.
