Remote Blower Minimum Clearance


  • What is the minimum distance that a remote blower must be installed above the ground?
  • What is the required clearance above ground for a remote blower?
  • Minimum distance to overhang or soffit above the remote blower


Remote blowers should be installed no closer than 12" from the ground.

  • There is no minimum requirement for installations under an overhang or soffit.
    • Mounting the blower too close to a soffit may cause moisture from the blower to enter the attic.
    • Consult with a local HVAC professional to discuss potential issues.
  • Municipality requirements may be more restrictive than Wolf's recommendations. Refer to local code for specific information.
