Residential Gas - High Input Direct Vent
Bradford White is pleased to introduce our new Residential Gas - High Input Direct Vent models. The new direct vent models provide a unique solution to those installations with an insufficient supply of combustion air, but have more recovery and a high First Hour Delivery. These heaters have side tappings to provide easy installation in the event the water heater is to be used as a source for space heating, in addition to potable supply. The side tapping connections are 3Z4" NPT female.
The venting system of this product is a telescopic coaxial (pipe inside a pipe) design. The products of combustion are exhausted through the inner pipe (4 inch diameter), and the air for combustion is introduced through the outer pipe (6 inch diameter). A 61Z2" inch opening in the terminating wall is required. The venting system offered must be installed with these water heaters without modification.
The standard vent kit shipped IN THE SAME CARTON with the heater includes: a vent terminal, an elbow, a straight section of coaxial vent pipe (telescopes from 12 inches to 24 inches), and hardware. The standard vent kit part number is 243-42514-00. Additional vent kits that allow for vent extensions up to an unprecedented 8 feet, are available only through Bradford White and are listed by kit number on the back of the specification sheet. The 8 foot vent kit can be used for vertical and/or horizontal extensions, which is a combined vent distance of 16 feet!
These models are now available for order. If you have any additional questions please contact your local Bradford White representative.
