I wish I could offer some help but I am trying to solve the same question. There are almost NO reviews out there on the internet for any downdraft vents. There are also NO noise ratings on the fans (though ceiling fans all have ratings). It would seem that the taller the vent, the better positioned it is to draw off cooking fumes but other than that and the power of the motor (and perhaps ease of cleaning), I've no idea how to select a unit. HELP!

What is the minimum vertical vent distant from top of water heater to top of cap. Water heater is stand alone outside furnishing water for military force provider showers unit.


Generally 40 feet for ordinary atmospheric-vented household water heater...
Straight run to roof.
Atmospheric means no power vent... just hot air drafting upwards
Google search: gas vent height code

Atmospheric venting code depends on 4 basic factors:
Diameter of vent--- bigger vent, more draft
How many water heaters are connected to same vent
BTU per hour rating of water heater-- the more gas that is burned per hour, the bigger the vent needs to be
How straight the pipe is -- are there any horizontal or lateral runs

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Checking_the_draft.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/checking-the-draft2.pdf

Other factors can include
-wind conditions... higher wind across top of vent pipe on roof can reduce draft, and cause downdraft that blows deadly CO into same room as water heater
-vent termination near high walls, trees, high roof peak etc will reduce draft or cause downdraft
-amount of incoming air supply... if water heater is inside a closed room, then there is no air to draft up the pipe, burner will shut down or burn lazy yellow instead of clear blue
-stuff piled up around water heater that obstructs air intake
-dirty air intake screen that reduces air intake
-vent fans inside same room as water heater that pull air down the vent and cause reduction in water heater draft
-generally elbows reduce draft by 10%
-vent cannot terminate near any window door or air intake for another gas appliance
-bird build nest on top of vent pipe after vent termination falls off
-highly acidic gas by-product causes large amount of condensation inside pipe that burns hole in pipe or drips down and damages combustion parts...blower and inline condensate trap and drain might be required
-multiple water heaters installed on same vent line.

I bought a house with a wood burning stove but I don't know how to operate it


First make sure everything is clean,from the chimney to the stove.insure all metal flues are tight from stove to chimney. Open damper on top of stove(some are in metal pipes). Open your draft vents, usually on clean out door at bottom. Depending on chimney draft you may need to open clean out door to get it started. Load your kindling and get it started. Add bigger wood as it catches. Turn down venting and drafting as the fire roars. Just don't shut draft before vents. You'll get used to balancing draft and vent as you go. I hope this helps

Install a attic vent


I know that you need to install the vent but if you can pick a different location it would be better for energy efficiency because of associated downdrafts that may occur. If you can locate the vent to go through a wall to the outside it would probably be better, If that is too big a project maybe consider an indoor venting system. If you wish to use the attic assure that you add a "draft trap" (see link) and assure you clean the dryer vent pipe at least 1/yr. http://plumbing.hardwarestore.com/51-600-dryer-vent-accessories/draft-blocker-inline-damper-602022.aspx

Hot water boiler wont heat up


If the draft inducer is bad then that will cause your system to go into lock down and will not work. You will need to check your vent pipe and everything all the way to make sure that there are no blocks or anything going on. If everything checks out ok, then you will need to replace the inducer motor and the system will work properly

Cold air from outside enters the kitchen through the down draft vent.


its would be best to install a damper
whether auto matic
or manuely operated
this is a common problem for the down draft
ive seen some people install things similar
to dryer vent louvers,
but check you exhaust area and still if you can block direct draft
but dont block it so that it cannot exhaust properly

How can a Jenn-Air down draft stove be vented out the roof ?


Yes , its much more labor intense but it can be done by venting it up through the wall then through the attic over to the side vents. Make sure to get flexable duct to pull up through the wall.

Furnace shuts down, will not start up again


Yeup, sounds like a natural draft. A power vent system vents out the side of the house without a chimney, but because there is no draft of hot air rising up a chimney, a powered fan is used. Power vents have additional sensors that can cause the burner to shut down.

If the burner does fire but then shuts down it sounds like the flame sensing rod is not working. It is dirty or needs replacement. Are there any error codes when the burner shuts down, or an indicator lamp that shows when the controller detects a flame?

Thermador cook top with down draft ventalation


I would think you can. Most of the cooktops are 240v and the vents are 120v, so the vent may be feeding off of one of the cooktop's hot wires. My vent is fed from it's own receptacle but is harnessed along with the cooktop's 240v.

Pilot Light Goes Out


The VC701 has a safety switch located on the back of he heater that may be tripping after the call for heat is satisfied. Check that there is a good draft by testing with a match. Make sure the flame is drawn toward the vent system when the unit is off and cooling down. Check it at the draft diverter located below where the vent pipe is attached. It is a box with an open bottom. If the draft is not pulling air toward the vent system, the heat from the cooling heater will trigger the safety switch and shut off the pilot. You may have to raise the vent pipe to establish a draft.
