Exhausting a portable generator

I am installing a portable propane generator in my basement and I need to route the exhaust into the venting system for my furnace.  Therefore, I need to connect the 1 inch exhaust vent of the generator into the 4 inch vent duct.  Whatever I connect to the generator exhaust must be able to withstand the heat and then needs to be converted to 4 inches.  Any ideas?

Hello Steven_Clark, and welcome to the community!

 

It is STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you use the generator outdoors as the manufacture and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends it, generators are not to be used indoors.

 

I'm sorry I cannot give you any suggestions on how to accomplish this task. I can recommend you look at the following link http://www.cpsc.gov/library/portgen.pdf.
