I am remodeling the home and am considering the option of installing a power-vent water heater and a power-vent boiler (for the central heating system), instead of building a new chimney or flue. My house uses natrual gas as fuel.
The State also offers rebate for high efficient units (AFUE > 85 for boiler, EF >0.62 for water heater).
I currently have a 50 Gallon water heater (40k BTU/hr) and a hot water boiler with input 187.5 k BTU/Hr and heating capacity of 146 k BTU/Hr. I am looking for replacing them with power-vent models of approximately the same capacities.
I did a lot of search on the web and found a couple of manufactureres. However, I managed to find onlly a few proper models. It seems many many maufactureres are not on-line, or don't have adquate web sites.
I'd appreciate any help from you in pointing me to any directory, review, dealer (preferrably in New Jersey) for these products. Any tips and advices on choosing, installing and using power-vent heaters are also appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
