Questions & Answers

Can this unit be vented through my current flue?

I have a 50 gallon natural gas hot water heater that I am replacing. Can I use the exhaust duct that is there or do I need to vent it horizontally to the outside?
Asked by: thatscguy
Yes with no issues

Does it come with a Damper?

I need a regular water heater without a damper. THanks.
Asked by: EDW
no, you need to get one.

Does this water heater keep heating water during a power outage?

I see it requires a 110 outlet for installation; does it have batteries for the EI, or is it dependent upon functional mains power?
Asked by: ManOnTheHill
No, because without a working powered vent the water heater will not function for safety reasons.

Performance Platinum 50 Gal. Short 12 Year 40,000 BTU ENERGY STAR Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 478.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Heater! After researching available water heaters I decided on this one for the following reasons: 1) It feeds air from above floor level, which doesn't require frequent cleaning by either me or the plumber because of clogged floor-level vents; 2) it is approved by PG&E because of superior efficiency; 3) a PG&E refund allowed a more expensive model, which didn't cost more after figuring in the rebate. All of these points have worked out to be as hoped. This heater allows my husband to take longer showers (not really cost-effective {which I discourage} but it makes him happy, and our gas bills haven't reflected these L-O-N-G showers because of the efficiency of the unit. It's been a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am surprised I bought this one over the recommendations of the sales person at Home Depot. I do not blame him, he was trying to recommend a cheaper model. But I made wanted this one. I am impressed with the way it went in so easily, and how it works. It is an awesome heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great production Really good supply and recovery. Only downside is it is a bit loud, but definitely a good buy.

I did have to actively pursue the info for the extended warranty that I purchased as Home Depot did not provide instructions. The customer service rep I spoke with on the phone walked me through the registration process which made it easy, but I feel there should be better info provided with the purchase. So far, the water heater is functioning well and providing plenty of hot water. I hope it lasts at least 12 years, but it would be great if it makes it for 15 or more with no maintenance like my last 2 Rheem water heaters. I will let you know ;D

Only issue is that it has a "vapor sensor" which was not indicated in the heater information. When the sensor fails causes the hot water heater to stop working. The last one I had, the sensor failed within 6 months. When operating the sensor provides a 12,000 ohm resistance; failed it is 2.000 ohms. If you remove the sensor and substitute a 12,000 ohm resistor, the hot water works just fine and never suffers a sensor failure. I can see no good reason for this sensor particular when it is so unreliable. If I could influence the manufacturer, I would tell them to take it out of the design. Short of that, when you buy this hot water heater, go to your local computer store and buy a 12,000 ohm resistor and connect it to the two slip-on wire leads for the vapor sensor. The vapor sensor is under the "gas cover" in a white plastic holder at the bottom front of the heater. I just "pops" out with a little effort.

The frustrating part is that that my original order got "lost", so I had to wait even longer after the water heater was re-ordered and dealing with customer service was initially frustrating. Eventually my call was elevated to their "conflict resolution" dept. and that person was responsive and helpful. If you want an Energy Star model plan ahead for the extra time it takes to get the water heater.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Water Heater I bought what I thought was a most efficient water heater and although it may be efficient, it is also difficult to live with!! The sensors on this unit are so sensitive that it shuts down at every turn!! First it says there is not enough air flow so you can't shut the door on the closet if you want hot water. Now the problem is a detection of flammable substance that will require a service call!! What happened to the maintenance FREE systems??

Very straight forward overall, I did over look the need for a 120v plug which I thought was only needed if you wanted to control it remotely. What can I say I’ve been wrong before, the Tech Support was great once I got through to them.The unit starts & runs flawlessly I highly recommend this unit.
