The SWG or ComboVent™ Power Venter is the safest, most efficient venting solution available today.
Gas and oil heating appliances generate heat through the combustion of fuel. Venting heating appliances is important to the safety of the occupants. The heat is transferred through the heat exchanger and distributed to the conditioned space. The by products of combustion must be vented safely out of the structure.In a conventional chimney, venting is achieved by the natural lifting action of the hot combustion gas. New, efficient systems absorb more of the heat in the heat exchanger and produce lower temperature vent gas. Lower temperature gas does not rise as quickly or as reliably as in older, less efficient systems. Power venting or sidewall vent is more economical and safer than a chimney vent. A power venter uses a motorized blower to vent the products of combustion. A power venter is interlocked with the appliance to ensure that proper draft is achieved before the appliance burner is activated.
Patented SWG or ComboVent Power Venters are ETL and cETL listed for all LP gas, natural gas, or oil-fired heating equipment. The SWG or ComboVent combines the motor, blower, and vent hood in one complete, easy to install unit. The SWG mounts on the outside of the building and pulls the combustion gases from the appliance through the outside wall utilizing 100% negative pressure.
