John Wood direct vent water heaters are designed for homes that do not utilize the chimney and where the external power supply cannot be provided for the heater. Thanks to the side wall installation and sealed combustion chamber, fresh air is taken from the outside and used for creating an ideal mixture with natural or propane gas. Due to the air tight design, back drafting and carbon monoxide leaking are minimized, which makes these units perfect for use even in room closets. Since there is no electric fan to blow, direct vent water heaters are very quiet. This type of the water heaters is recommended for homes with the space issues.
Thermopile design allows pilot light proper work even in harsh environment.
Gas control valve incorporates the LED operation status indicator and diagnostic system for easy troubleshooting.
Flame Safe technology protects the user from the accidental ignition of the flammable vapor from paint, solvents and some chemicals.
