I am looking for a natural gas power vent water heater that can exit the wall between the joists in the basement and 90 up about 3 to 4 feet to a termination.
Right now it is a vent straight up from the heater, then a 90 and straight horizontally out to the 45 degree termination on the exterior. It is low to the ground (~13") and consideration was not given to the amount of snow we get around here so it needs to be dug out occasionally.
All of the residential water heaters that I have seen allow for 1- 90 degree and then 1-45 degree termination at the exterior. Apparently this is so the exhaust won’t ice up and get blocked and shut down.
This is a 2013 Rheem model 43VP50E2. The water heater is ~43,000 btu.
Does anyone know of one that can be properly installed to get it up higher on the exterior?
Any help is appreciated.
