water heater

econoFebruary 16, 2013

I'm in the market for a new water heater but need some advice on what to purchase. my present water heater vents into the brick chimney in basement but I would like to eliminate that setup and vent the new one out the basement wall.
My question is can I vent it out the wall (approx. 10 feet away), and would i necessarily need one with a power vent. I'm sure I need a 50 gal. size (gas) but have no preference as to manufacturer.
Thanks

Yes, you can vent it through the wall with a power vented water heater.

thanks for the help. Can it be vented out under a window?

no. There is a minimum clearance from windows, I forget how many feet.

I think A1 Plumbing of Baltimore hires folks that either:
A) Can't read, or
B) Are thieves.

You don't get to attempt to steal advertising space on this site. By doing so, I have to assume you are incapable of reading the site TOU or that you don't care. Either way, were I in the Baltimore area, I would not hire a plumber who is either uneducated or dishonest.

You asked.
