I want to replace my current gas hot water tank with a power vent unit
(about 50 gallon capacity). Years ago we installed a high efficiency
furnace-- power vented out the side of the house instead of up the
chimney. We experienced the follow-on, much written about, problem of
just having the hot water heater venting up the chimney. We had to
replace the top 8 feet or so of our chimney-- interior damage due to
condensation. I am interested in any recommendations-- best brand or
brands to avoid. I have seen some comments/reviews that suggest
Bradford White has a good reputation with contractors, Rheem Ruud
being okay and AO Smith graded "below average." Any recommendations
would be appreciated.
