    Rheem has a somewhat different water heater with a DIM:

    First one below the tankless models...

    Lots of options there... a few minutes browsing might help one see what is available.

    I'm fairly certain that Bradford White is using a Jakel blower with a PSC motor, and I thought that AO State followed suit?

    Have to check specs, I'm going off of memory.

    We put in Branford white and they are 3.1FLA. Just got an email from AO smith they said that theirs is 3 - 5. so if it is a Jakel blower it is still a shaded pole motor.

    No I can't use a direct vent I have 20' to outside wall.
    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???
