Highlights of the SWG Furnace Power Venter for Oil and Gas
- SAFE: 100% negative pressure in the vent pipe for maximum safety
- LESS COSTLY: Standard galvanized pipe can be used instead of expensive stainless steel
- SAVES TIME: No need to seal vent pipe joints, saving time and money
- LONGER VENT LENGTHS: Significantly longer vent lengths than positive pressure, direct vent systems
- RECOMMENDED: The SWG power venter or ComboVent is recommended by major heating appliance manufacturer
Features of the SWG Power Venter
The SWG power venter for gas and oil heating appliances combines the motor, blower, and vent hood in one complete, easy to install unit. The SWG power venter mounts on the outside of the building and pulls the combustion gases from the appliance through the outside wall utilizing 100% negative pressure. The SWG must be sized to match the appliance or appliances’ input firing rate. Most firing rates are published in the manufacturer’s installation manual. The SWG and ComboVent must be installed with a CK Control Kit to ensure proper listing and safe, efficient venting.
Benefits of the SWG or ComboVent Power Venter for oil or gas include:
- 100% negative pressure in the vent pipe for maximum safety.
- Standard galvanized pipe can be used instead of expensive stainless steel.
- No need to seal vent pipe joints, saving time and money.
- Significantly longer vent lengths than positive pressure, direct vent systems.
- The SWG or ComboVent is recommended by major heating appliance manufacturers.
When to use the SWG/CV Power Venter:
Use with gas or oil furnaces, boilers, and water heaters in the following situations:
- New construction.
- When converting from electric to gas or oil.
- To avoid relining a chimney.
- When installing an additional heating appliance.
- When co-venting with water heater or additional
appliance, can be used as a gas/oil combo single unit
How the SWG/CV Power Venter Works
1. The thermostat calls for heat, energizing the Power Venter (A).
2. A negative pressure is created, closing the pressure switch on the control kit (B).
3. The burner (C) is activated and combustion gases are exhausted (D).
4. After the thermostat is satisfied, the burner shuts down and the venter continues to post purge, exhausting residual flue gases.
5. When the timer or temperature control is satisfied, the venter is deactivated.
