Forgive my ignorance as I haven't been in the plumbing scene for the past 8 months but where is a hot water side on a water heater?
Silly question the hot side is located opposite the cold side of course.
Normally the hot is on the left side when the gas control valve is in the front. The top of the heater will normally have raised text labeling the hot and cold openings. The can't fail way to determine what's hot and cold is to locate which opening has the dip tube. The opening with the dip tube is the cold.
craig, remember that these guys don't need the lo nox models like us. so figure at least 100 less than us
Do any residential water heaters or furnaces come with lo-NOx burners?
Would such burners lessen natural draft up the water heater center tube which cools the water 24/7?
Cleaning a chimney after dark in December, I warmed my hands over a furnace vent.
Neither the furnace nor water heater were burning.
Was amazed at how much heat was lost from the water heater. Additionally, that draft was pulling frigid air into the basement which replaced the air lost up the flue, chilling the basement.
I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified. It ain't just soot, it's paydirt. "I swear, wherever Gift goes, argument follows." -Youtube comment
