Generally, a direct vent must be next to an outside wall or be connected to a chimney that extends 2-4 feet above roof peak (all gases and fumes from the burner will vent naturally). A power vent is used when the unit is put inside the home in a closet or on an interior wall. It must have venting to an outside wall and must have a blower fan to remove gases from the water heater so they don't back up into the house.

Answer [Note: There are critical safety concerns involved here. Read the whole answer!] I'm no plumber, but I do know this: You need to determine if your wate…r heater is designed for side venting or verticle venting! If installed improperly, the water heater may allow deadly carbon monoxide into your home and possibly cause a fire! I think this one is best left up to a professional. Hope this helps.
You heater works from water flowing from your radiator to the heater core, you may have a leak in your heater core. You most likely also smell antifreeze inside t…he vehicle. It is most likely casued by a leaky heater core. Unfortunatly depending upon the make/model/year of your vehicle a heater core can be difficult and/or expensive to replace.
not even in the same state
If the installer used CHEAP single wall flue pipe (sheet metal) and the heater is running for an extended amount of time YES it gets very hot and double wall piping sho…uld be used when passing through any flammable area AGA , NFPA 54
The water heater is a domestic device that is used to heat water for domestic purposes. A boiler on the other hand does not just heat the water but makes the water boil an…d turns it into steam.
The direct air heater takes the space air or fresh air and mixes it with hot gasses from a flame source such as natural gas flame or oil fired flame and returns / redirects it… to the space to be heated. The warm air contains all the flame byproducts and toxic gasses along with. This type of air handling system is used in industrial environment where the human beings are not exposed to such warm air. In the indirect system the hot flame gasses circulate through a metallic high efficiency heat exchanger which isolates the flame gasses (aka flue gasses) from that of the air to be warmed by passing from the other side of the heat exchanger. This type of air is safe for human exposure as the flame products and toxic COx, NOx and SOx are isolated. usually all the domestic air heaters are of indirect type.
Direct venting is when you directly vent to someone. Indirect venting is when you indirectly vent to someone.
Well hmm hard question hmm let me look at the question again (the difference??) well one heats water and the other one heats HOT water!!! no just kidding they are the same THI…NG! either gas or electric but the same! A "hot water heater" is actually a booster to increase the heated water to a higher temperature
I am not sure, but this is what I think... That's because the water is heated to less than 100 deg C (and a thermostat turns off the heating once this temperature is reached).… Still, most models have a safety valve in case excess pressure builds up.
Bosch tankless water heaters were specifically designed for the United States. They save energy because they only heat the water you are going to use. They also save water bec…ause of their size compared to regular water heaters.
yes it can
Power vented has a fan in the vent that is heat activated and draws the exhaust out. Standard relies on heat rising to vent.
My direct vent furnace pilot light issue was the glass viewing port was missing allowing room air to blow out the pilot light. Replacing the missing glass which stopped the …draft, fixed the problem.
Because of the carbon monoxide produced from the burner at the bottom that would build up and kill you.
Vent free heaters can be purchased from retailers such as Canadian Tire, Lowe's or Home Depot. They can also be purchased online from websites such as eBay.
