Unique powered vent water heater.

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever seen one like this? Looks to be standard BW heater, with a remote exhaust fan located in the floor joist above it, then a right out the rim joist. Exhaust at eye level and hood was very hot to the touch.

Sure. You found one that is incorrectly installed.

The motor shaft is vertical. It's required to be horizontal.

6" clearance is required from the vent connector, fan housing (all directions) and exhaust pipe after the fan.

Considering the above, the exhaust termination is probably wrong too.
