General gas question


They make vent free gas appliances like stoves, heaters and the like. Can there be a vent free gas hot water tank?? Or is ther already one on the market and I missed it?

I've seen outdoor gas tankless water heaters, but never an indoor model. I think the best you're going to get is a power vent model that uses a PVC flue for indoor use.

It is all in the consumption. Most stoves/heaters output CO2 in small enough quantities that it dissipates on its own. Larger rangers with high-output burners REQUIRE a vent. A much larger appliance like a water heater burns enough gas to raise CO2 inside a house to dangerous levels.
