    Default water heater venting

    We have a natural gas water heater that exhausts out the chimney but we are looking to get rid of the chimney and being the water heater is less than 10 years old it would be nice to avoid the extra cost of a new heater. We are planning on raising the house and replacing the old basement

    thank you for your thoughts

    sorry i forgot the main point is a power vent add on to the water heater a safe way to vent the water heater or do i need to save the chimney or replace the water heater

    thanks again

    Howdy if you remove the chimney then you need to vent the water heater out of the building you can use flu piping that is made for this it is doubled wall pipe and there are clearances from combustibles an local codes to tell you how. Gas furnace then a separate vent pipe for it too.
    Any an all of my comments are just my opinion and not to be confused with facts.

    i'll have to check into that so you think that an add on power vent is not worth it

    Thank you
