Best bet is to check venting specs in your furnace manual.

thank you all for reply.

If extended pipe length exceed limit (for example, limit is 1 meter, now it was extened to 2 meters), can we image, what problem it may cause?

People on boats die all the time from doing this. They move the generator to a "better" location and their family doesn't wake up in the morning.
If the manufacturer took the trouble to calculate the maximum length of the pipe, they did it for a reason.

You need to check your furnace specifications. There are a lot of factors to be considered.

Check the manual first

IF you extend a vent:
-it will require proper support for anything after 2ft of extension
-it must maintain 1/4" per ft slope
-it may require insulation.
-in most cases the intake and exhaust must stay in the same pressure zone
-per the manual don't exceed max pipe length. a elbow is worth up to 6ft of pipe length


My recommendation to meet code and installation instructions as well aesthetics. Is have it re-vented from the inside out to the back wall

Oh! Why do you want to move them in the first place?
