Proper Location of a Power Vent

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

I looked a the info on power vent and it says for C. Must terminate at least 4' below, 4' horizontally, or 1' above any door or window.
I would like to put the power vent 5ft directly below a window is that O.K. ? Or does it also have to be 4ft horizontally away from the window?

Thanks for your help
