Small 20-30 Gallon Powervent Water Heater
« on: May 04, 2017, 12:21:07 PM »
Anyone know if any of the manufacturers make a small 20-30 Powervent Water Heater?  Got a guy looking to put one in his crawl space, I have about 4ft height to work with.

That's what I thought.  I've seen 30G conventional but nothing Powervent.

Another question, what license is required to install an electric water heater? Do I have to be an electrician or can a gas fitter do it as well?

It's not.  So who can do an electric tank? An electrician?

If it's a new installation and no wiring or plumbing exist, then you need an electrician to install the wiring and a plumber to install the plumbing.
