Description for Field Controls SWG-5

Gas and oil heating appliances generate heat through the combustion of fuel. The heat is transferred through the heat exchanger and distributed to the conditioned space. The products of combustion, however, 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 venting is more economical and safer than chimney venting. 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.

Features

  • 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. Benefits of the SWG or ComboVent Power Venter 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.
  • The SWG or ComboVent 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.

What a savings

By Joe

Comments about 5" Power Venter (290,000 BTU):

My old SWG-5 was 25 years old and had stopped working. A HVAC engineer said the motor had to be replaced and the motor would cost $800. I was then told that a new venter would be $1,100. I found this website. Same manufacturer and got the entire venter overnighted for a total of $420. Took some time to install but can't argue with the savings.

My old power venter had rusted out, so I found this model by looking up the part number. Pretty easy to reuse my existing setup since everything was basically the same.

Easy to install. Is quiet and works well

By dcweb

Verified Buyer

Comments about 4" Power Venter (170,000 BTU):

This power vent SWG- 4HD replaced a 20 year old swg-4LE which is esentially the identical item.

I found the device for a few dollars less at another on line site. However, those people were totally unhelpful about a simple question. The PexSupply folks went out of their way to answer questions and assure I was getting what I needed.

It is well worth it to pay a few dollars more for helpful service.

The device arrived assembled and ready to install. All the wiring was near identical and easy to install.

Perfect

By adam adam

Comments about 5" Power Venter (290,000 BTU):

This product was perfect to help remove the chimney from our kitchen and free up some SERIOUS room. The install was easy and straightforward. The control unit is a bit over priced. Now that I know what is exactly inside of it- I think I will source my own parts if anything goes wrong. There is not anything particularly unique or expensive in the control unit. The vent unit itself is great, looks very well made and does the trick!

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Field controls suggests for maintenance to Inspect the motor once a year; it should rotate freely. To prolong the life of the motor, lubricate with six drops of SWG Super Lube, Part #46226200, annually. Use of any other type of lubricant may cause premature motor failure.
