  • What is a direct vent water heater and how do I know if I need one?

    The direct vent gas water heater looks like it has a pipe sticking out of its head. It is a gas water heater that has a venting pipe that goes right from the water heater out the side of the building or in some cases, up a chimney to a roof vent. So it “directly” vents right out of the house.

    With its closed and tightly sealed exhaust system, the Rheem direct vent water heater sends one pipe through the wall outside to both draw in air for gas combustion and expel toxic exhaust. Combustion, in a water heater, is the burning of natural gas to heat water.

    A gas water heater needs plenty of air for this combustion, and using air from the outside is energy efficient. The alternative would be for the water heater to draw air from inside the house, electricity, and/or gas to heat or cool. With the direct vent, you avoid this added fuel use and cost so your furnace or air handler doesn’t have to work as hard.

    Usually, if you have a direct vent already installed, you will need to replace it with the same type of water heater. However if you are just getting gas to your home, our water heater specialists can work with you to determine which type of gas water heater is needed for your location and gas line size.

  • What is a power vent gas water heater?

    The Rheem power vent water heater is most often used in situations where a direct vent needs a longer distance to vent. That happens, for example, if the water heater is in the interior of the house, nowhere near an exterior wall, perhaps in a closet. Then you will need the power vent water heater. It has a powerful blower fan that can push the harmful exhaust gases out of the house through its vent. This can work at long distances of up to 100 feet, hence the name “power vent”.
