Select the right water heater for what you need.
Gas water heaters come in different models and which you choose depends on a few factors: the size of the building, building configuration and construction are all considered when determining which model is the best choice for your situation.
We’ll set up an appointment with one of our trusted and qualified technicians – free of charge – to help you easily determine which style of gas water heater is right for your residential or commercial application.
The location of the water heater and its proximity to exterior walls or chimney are important when determining which style should be installed.
There are three main types of storage style gas hot water heaters.

Conventional/Natural Vent (CV/NV)
- Used when there is an existing chimney and where the chimney can be used to vent the water heater to the outside.
- Operation is quiet, and does not require a blower motor or electricity to operate.
Power Vented (PV)
- Vents out the side of the house, no chimney is necessary.
- Does not need to be located close to an outside wall.
- A blower motor is located on top of the water heater to vent gases to the outside, allowing a longer travel time for venting.
- Blower motor requires electricity to operate and has a mild fan noise.
Direct Vent (DV)
- Used where there is insufficient combustible air or where air is unsuitable for combustion (i.e. bedroom or bathroom installations).
- If located within a short distance of an exterior wall, it can be vented directly through the outside wall.
- This unit does not require a blower motor to vent exhaust, and uses outside air for combustion.
- This tank is quiet, and does not require electricity to operate.
