These new water heaters were developed in response to customer requests and offer the following features:
A 40 and 50 gallon gas capacities with 40,000 BTU/hr inputs.
B Smaller diameter for tighter installation situations
C A more durable cast aluminum air intake boot design.
D Lower price points compared to the higher performance PDX2 models.
Power Direct Vent models are ideal for installations which lack sufficient air for combustion, such as new construction homes or additions which are tightly insulated. These models use a twin pipe system where combustion air is drawn from outside the building in one pipe, and combustion products are expelled to the outside in another pipe. An added advantage of the Power Direct Vent design is that they save on energy costs by using unconditioned air from outside the building instead of conditioned air (either heater or cooled) from inside the building.
PDX1 models use commonly available 2″ or 3″ PVC, ABS or CPVC pipe for air intake and exhaust, which can greatly reduce the overall installed cost compared to other systems which use more expensive vent materials. Also, an optional 2″ Concentric Vent Kit, which requires only one penetration through the roof or wall, is available.
