What is a Fan Assisted Draft Inducer?

Standard gas water heaters produce extremely hot air during combustion, which moves the combustion gases quickly up the chimney. the Xr90 is much more efficient (i.e. it puts more heat in the water and less heat up the chimney).

A proprietary baffle and flue design retains the heat longer, therefore a device is needed to propel the air and gases upward.

Fan assisted draft inducer creates the proper draft to expel the combustion gases.
