Questions & Answers

Can we use this for a Coal Stove

Asked by: sheila
I would not recommend power venting a coal appliance. This power vent has not been tested or certified for use with solid fuel of any kind and should not be used in that application.

Is this good for only one unit? or can I use this for my Natural gas water heater and forced air heater?
Asked by: rob
First, although there is nothing preventing you from using a stainless steel unit on gas product it is predominantly used on oil because of the corrosive nature of its exhaust. It may be expensive overkill. As to your initial question, I have heard of it being done, but I am not sure it is allowed by code everywhere and I would never do it myself. I would not do it for number of reasons. Here are a couple. First you would need a control that could work with both appliances. That will get very complicated as water heaters have a mil-volt control system where as in most gas furnaces it is 24 volt. Second when either of the appliances fires you will be pulling heat out of the other one. I would keep it simple and install one power vent for each appliance. As to the water heater it may be less expensive and less problematic to purchase a new water heater that has direct vent capability. I know that may sound waste full but I know how expensive and problematic it can be to add a power vent to a tank type water heater. I would strongly suggest you speak to a licensed plumber and the code enforcement person in your area before proceeding.

What controls are needed to install this with a rheem 40 gal gas water heater?

What controls are needed to install this with a rheem 40 gal gas water heater?
Asked by: Terry
My sincere advice would be to not do what you are asking. It would be less expensive, less technical and a better value to purchase a new water heater with a factory installed power vent rather than trying to modify a chimney vented unit. This unit is typically used on an oil burning boiler or furnace, hence the stainless steel. They will have a built in 120 volt control strategy that you can typically wire this unit in to. However a gas water heater has a gas valve that is typically powered by the milli-volts of power generated by the thermal couple. Thus you wold need the appropriate control to allow a MV system to control a 120 volt power vent. This is so potentiall problematic that Field does not promote them on there web site and The Home Depot does not sell them. If you want to see the controls in question you will need to go the Field Controls web site. Go to the literature portal. Then go to the piece labeled "Venting Guide, (complete vent products and servicing) There you will find the controls on page 7. I would need to see the water heater to tell you which one. But again although I understand your thinking, doing this is not in your best interest.

How is this wired to the gas valve on a water heater?

Asked by: Terry
In general that is not a good idea and i is not in your best interest. In almost all cases it is cheaper and easier to replace the water heater with one that is equipped with a factory installed power vent. Years ago people would do this because power vented water heaters were not available now they are. Second I would question why you are choosing a stainless steel power vent It is typically only used with oil and we would be excessive for a gas unit. However in answer to your question you would need a specialized control to do this. Field offers a number of different controls to be used to actuate the power vent based on the control strategy of the appliance. For example many water heaters have a mili-volt control system. The heat given off by the pilot causes the thermal couple to generate as small current of electricity. Field offers a specific control that will work with this low voltage and control the power vent. In most cases the cost of this control and the power vent would be more than the cost of a new water heater. Thus the market has changed and this is only done in very specific applications. The different controls are show on the Field Controls web site. If you have further questions you can give me a call. Chris 978 651-3301
