$4685 /each

Product Overview

The Concentric Vent allows both the intake for combustion air and the exhaust vent to pass through a standard roof or sidewall. This is an alternative to the standard two pipe intake/vent shown in the basic furnace installation instructions. CVENT-3 is for use with 3 in. intake/vent systems. Refer to the furnace installation instructions for intake/vent pipe sizing information. WARNING Do not use the Concentric Vent kit for anything other than a Category IV furnace. Failure to follow this warning could result in fire, personal injury or death. WARNING Do not operate the furnace until the installation and assembly of the Concentric Vent and all piping are completed. Failure to follow this warning could result in product damage or improper operation, personal injury or death. NOTE: The Concentric Vent reduces the allowable intake/vent piping length by 5 ft. from that listed in the basic furnace installation instructions.

Questions & Answers

What is the OD (outside diameter) of the PVC pipe that this kit is designed to accept?

Another reviewer reports purchasing this 3 inch unit only to find it is designed to accept 2.5" OD (outside diameter) PVC pipe. I too require a 3" OD kit. Can you confirm that the fittings on this unit are designed accept 3" OD PVC pipe?
Asked by: HHWTDBE
The unit is designed for a heater with a 3" INTAKE. That's the pipe coming into the side of the wye. The EXHAUST vent from most class IV units is a 2" exhaust, thus the end of the fitting is designed for a 2" exhaust pipe thus a 2.5" bell for a 2" PVC. In other words, this product is designed for 3" PVC for the inlet pipe and 2" PVC for the exhaust. You'll need to reduce from 3" to 2" on the exhaust line. If your heater unit has a 3" EXHAUST port (which I've not seen on a Class IV unit) then you may cause some issues with back pressure.

Does the cap come off?

I assume the cap comes off allowing it to be passed through the roof?
Asked by: Welshmike
Rain cap to pipe alternate assembly -> Drill a clearance hole in rain cap and a pilot hole in the vent pipe, then use a stainless steal screw.

I get a odd burning smell from my furnace when it rains.

Perhaps the rain is washing down residue inside the 3" pipe? Can I extend the cap and add 2 90" degree elbows so that the opening is facing down and not letting rain in?. If not, what else could cause the smell, almost a burning electrical smell.

Please confirm that this termination is approved for other Category IV gas appliances (not just a furnace) specifically a Rheem tankless H2O heater model ECOH180DVLN-1.
Asked by: HVJR
DiversiTech, the maker of this vent, sells mostly in the HVAC industry, thus they are using the term "Furnace" because that is where most of there customers use this product. However, I for example used this vent on my boiler. Meaning I have a forced hot water heating system as apposed to a forced hot air furnace. However there is a bigger learning opportunity here. Your question would have been very appropriate and common ten years ago. However venting strategies, requirements and codes have become much more complex and inconsistent in the last few years. Today gas appliances typically have a venting strategy and requirements that are specific to that appliance and that appliance alone. Especially the higher the efficiency. That strategy is typically tested by and approved by "ETL" and is out lined in that appliances specific installation instructions. That installation manual will typically have the ETL stamp on the front. Unlike years ago the inspector typically walks in and asks for the manual and compares the installation to what is outlined as required in the manual. So the installation is judged against that, as well as the plumbing codes. Further some states and municipality's then have requirements that may exceed that. So even though this vent is approved for category IV appliances it may not be the style Rheem wants you to use. They may have a specific requirement for that unit. So you want to ask in this case Rheem if this concentric vent can be used on this product. Further you may want to ask your installer if your area has any over riding requirements. For example, as I said I used this vent on my condensing boiler. And I installed the venting as specified in the manual. However my inspector made me change the first few feet of pipe from PVC to CPVC because he wanted a pipe that was more temperature resistant. So my recommendation is to get the blessing from Rheem and then the code enforcement person in your area before proceeding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Right part All I needed was the end cap, but had to buy the whole PVC vent kit just to get the piece I wanted. It worked just fine and I couldn't find the cap any other place so I guess I am satisfied with the product.
