Description for AO Smith GPVT-50-LP

The ProMax Power Vent water heaters have been engineered to maximize efficiency and deliver a greater energy factor (EF).

Features

  • Energy Star Qualified
    • All models meet the September 2010 Energy Star® EF requirement and may also qualify for local utility and rebate programs
    • Dynaclean II dip tube optimizes inlet water pressure to minimize cold water regions within the tank. The self-cleaning action also reduces sediment accumulation on the bottom of the tank.
    • Hot-surface ignitor is more robust and reliable than standing pilot, and reduces energy consumption.
    • Built-in heat traps on the water inlet and outlet reduce the amount of heat lost through piping
    • 2-inch, thick, "Environmentally-Friendly" foam insulation reduces the amount of heat loss and contributes to overall energy efficiency
  • Versatile Power Vent Design
    • All models feature an exclusive 3-position rotatable blower outlet which adds flexibility
    • Combined horizontal and vertical vent runs up to 180 equivalent feet with 4" diameter venting (ABS, PVC, CPVC and polypropylene)
    • All models are equipped with a protected sensor that detects the presence of flammable vapors and automatically disables the burner to prevent ignition
    • Air intake snorkel elevates the inlet location of combustion air to prevent flammable vapors from entering the sealed combustion chamber
    • Reduced NOx emissions comply with air quality management district regulations
  • User-Friendly
    • State-of-the-art electronic gas control provides more precise temperature control
    • LED control light displays operation status and diagnostics information
    • Factory-installed T&P and a durable, tamper-resistant brass drain valve are positioned for service accessibility
  • Available in Natural Gas and Propane
  • 6 year limited tank and parts warranty

    PLEASE NOTE: The product weighs 192 lbs. and may require the use of a
    lift gate.
    If you do require a lift gate at your delivery, you'll have the option to add this FREE of charge when you checkout.

had older model for 10 years before. This new one is bigger in size for the same 50 gallons, did not expect it, was hardly fit in my laundry room. Works good, not as loud as one before.

Quality product

By Satisfied Customer

from Wisconsin

Verified Buyer

Comments about 50 Gallon - 50,000 BTU ProMax Power Vent Residential Gas Water Heater (NG):

I just received my new water heater a week ago and I installed it myself. I was very pleased with the condition of the packaging of the water heater. It was well protected and arrived without any damage. The installation was very easy. All I needed was a couple flexible water lines to allow me to connect from the new water heater to the existing water supply lines. After one week with the new water heater installed, I have been very happy. The water is hot any time we need it and it is also a lot more quiet than the old water heater, plus it is more energy efficient. Hopefully I can get many years of use from it just as my previous A.O Smith brand water heaters that I have had.

Better than my 75 gallon

By MJP

from Austin, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about 50 Gallon - 50,000 BTU ProMax Power Vent Residential Gas Water Heater (LP Gas):

Had a 75 gallon AO Smith powervent. It was loud and used A TON more LP gas to heat less water. This 50 gal unit has 90+ gal first hour usage, and far better efficiency rating. Runs less - puts out more. Easy to install. Highly recommend it and PexSupply.

Great Value/Easy install

By Engineer (wanabe plumber)

from Pasadena, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about 50 Gallon - 50,000 BTU ProMax Power Vent Residential Gas Water Heater (NG):

Installed in center of house. Ran 2" PVC exhaust about 25 feet total. Respect the limits on elbows and 45s. Used some 3" where I could to reduce friction. Avoid tight 90 elbows. Use extended elbows and 45s...

Comments about 50 Gallon - 50,000 BTU ProMax Power Vent Residential Gas Water Heater (NG):

I purchased two of these water heaters. One for a rental property and the other for my home. They both installed and started up easily. The energy efficiency is very good and we never run out of hot water at home with 5 people.

Everything and more

By Regular Joe DYI'er

from Ann Arbor, MI

Verified Buyer

Comments about 50 Gallon - 50,000 BTU ProMax Power Vent Residential Gas Water Heater (NG):

The unit is everything that it spec'd out to be.

Replaced a 20 year old AO Smith power vent unit and so far I am not disappointed in this one. For a power vent, it is quiet, love the electronic ignition compared to my old unit with a pilot light and the installation went without a hitch.

With a pre-filter on my incoming water before a softener and draining/flushing yearly on my old unit (which still works-but didn't want to press my luck), I hope this last just as long and troublefree as my old AO Smith water heater.
