Can you buy just the power vent with your Rheem 40 gallon tank?

Asked by Abu May 24, 2020

Answer

Thank youf or asking, Abu. Unfortunately, you cannot simply attach a Power Vent to the top of a normal gas water heater. You would need to purchase one of our Power Vent Water Heaters. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 1-866-279-4566. Thank you and have a great day.

My Gas power vent unit was in stalled 2003 I want same unit Model 21VP50E -1 -A 40 BTU STORT STILL WORKS want same unit

Asked by Rag May 21, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for asking, Rag. Unforunately, none of our 40 Gallon Short Power Vents come using 40 kBTU. However, the average difference between a 40 kBTU unit and a 36 kBTU unit is 5 GPH, which would mean no more than a few minutes difference in heating. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 1-866-279-4566. Thank you and have a great day.

Is this a high efficiency power vent you don't have to run out a stack?

Easy installation. Plenty of hot water for a family of 4. Switched from 40 gal electric to 40 gal natural gas - energy cost rating is $400/year lower than the electric water heater I took out.
