Power Vent Water Heater Installation & Repair

The most common gas water heater is technically called an “atmospheric vent” type. Because warm air rises, the hot gases created by combustion are pulled by natural convection up a vertical metal flue through the roof to the outside. It’s a tried-and-true, simple system, that does not require electric power or moving parts.

But what if the location of a water heater makes it impossible to run a vent through the roof? Then a power vent water heater is the solution. It uses an electric blower to push the combustion gases, along with added air to cool the exhaust down, through PVC pipe to an exterior wall or soffit that can be be dozens of feet away.

Why Choose A Power Vent Water Heater?

Power vent water heaters often get over looked due to the cost, which can be 2 to 3 times more than a conventional water heater. They are more efficient than a conventional water heater, but usually require more maintenance in later years of operation. They were first introduced in the early 2000′s as a solution to vertical venting problems. Here are some of the advantages when you choose a power vent hot water heater:

  • Can be installed almost anywhere in a home, but best located outside the conditioned living area.
  • Exhaust vent can be run horizontally for a long distance.
  • Often less expensive to install for new construction, because the vent can run horizontally and terminate at an exterior wall, it does not require flashing of a roof penetration, and PVC pipe is cheaper and easier to install than metal vent pipe.
