Rheem venting location
I have been having some issues with nuisance gas detectors going off and so far the technicians can not seem to locate the cause.
I am sending this note in hopes someone may have some insight as to what the issue could be. I am curious about the venting location in relevance to the gas furnace vents. The propane hot water heater is "just" 10 feet if not less from the propane furnace vents.
They are all on the north side of house. We seem to periodically see our gas detectors going off...possibly caused by the vents drawing in vented CO gas ...we have in the passed had an actual propane leak in our house due to a cracked fitting so we are leary to simply brush off the alarms.
There must be a cause due to installation issue or something...any ideas? We use a Rheem 4 inch PVC power vented hot water tank. Some are telling me venting to the north side of the house was not the best idea....and some are thinking the hot water tank could be drawing in CO gas when it is not running....thoughts?
