I was wondering, at maximum, how long can the exiting vent tubing/flue/etc. can be before becoming ineffective due to the air from the heater cooling too much, thus reducing the air flow and either causing the heater system to not function in a necessary or preferred manner, or possibly even causing a hazard to due the air/fumes/smoke stalling or backing up, building up in the interior of a structure...

Thank you.

One of their videos indicates they stop at 20 or 30 feet for reliable flow.
