This type of residential water heater needs to vent the burnt gas, so it must be installed as close as possible to a chimney or ventilation flue. It cannot be installed in other locations in the house, as can an electric model.
Before ordering a gas water heater, make sure you have access to a natural gas supply.
Chauffe-eau SOS offers 3 types of gas water heater: Direct Vent, Power Vent and Atmospheric. The general features of each model are as follows :
Direct vent water heaters are designed to prevent ignition of flammable vapours outside the heater, making them totally safe.
This type of water heater is specially designed to vent directly through the roof or an exterior wall, without the need of a chimney.
An atmospheric vent heater is designed to vent directly through the chimney and roof. The great advantage compared to the other two types is that it requires no power to vent the burnt gases. This is an important feature in the event of a power outage or if the electric motor should fail.
