- A power vented water heater is similar to a conventional water heater, with the added power of a built-in fan. The fan actively pulls the gases out of the water heater and pushes them out of the home.
- A power vented water heater doesn’t require a chimney to operate, so it offers more flexibility. In many cases, power vent water heaters are installed in rooms that have an exterior wall – so that ductwork can easily be added to push the air out of the home.
- Ultimately, it comes down to consumption habits. Typically, a 50 gallon power vented water heater may be sufficient to provide enough hot water for households with 3-4 people. A 60 gallon power vented water heater may offer more storage capacity to provide enough hot water for households with 5 or more people.^
