Re: Charley Noble, tankless water heater vent

ok, the 'eek' I get. Cancel that idea. Thanks for the info...nothing at all wrong with stainless steel anyway...
As for Brian - that was a really, REALLY cruel thing to say. I'll think about you next winter while I'm in the Bahamas and then Cuba...and you're at work?

Re: Charley Noble, tankless water heater vent

eek! the hose will melt! the flue gases are well above 300 degrees!

Gas fired equipment is rated in AFUE What is AFUE? | WebHVAC.com

Also I would look for AGA stamps (american gas assoc) and or LPGIA for propane.
Of course marine use is not approved, you already know that

No, the nicer one on the west coast.

Re: Charley Noble, tankless water heater vent

This is all great stuff, and thanks! Interestingly enough, the guy at the factory tells me I can use a clothes dryer vent and flex piping for this - I'm going to hook it up with a hose, outside, and see just what kind of heat comes out the flue.
Denise, what is afue? You keep mentioning it.

Re: Charley Noble, tankless water heater vent

Use the same type of Charley Noble you would with a bulkhead mounted propane heater or a diesel fired heater. You can find marine quality stacks and deck fittings here DickinsonMarine.com - Propane Fireplaces

I can't see any type of plastic working - melting, but not working. I have owned tankless propane water heaters in the past and liked the convenience.

If you are surveyed for insurance they will probably ask for its removal as it doesn't meet ABYC standards. Insurance companies hate them. The standards call for a vent, no open pilot light, AND a closed combustion chamber. The only one I know of that can meet the standards is the Precision Temp but it is a lot more expensive.

Re: Charley Noble, tankless water heater vent

natural draft is about 70 -80% afue. Natural draft is also way cheaper to manufacture. Energy star rates are over 90% afue and extract so much heat from the burned gas they need a condensation drain. but of course home owners are into the numbers. We installed (I'm in the business) a dual purpose on demand in my house in Dec. cut the hot water and heating costs by 60% from the oil fired boiler I had installed when I bought the house.
