    Default Larger size gas hot water tank

    If the home upgraded with larger size conventional gas hot water tank, should we worry about possible undersized vent? pilot off? backdraft?

    Also if the condense furnace replaced the original conventional furnace, is the shared vent or chimney a trouble, cold chimney?

    Thanks

    If the water heater is larger it may have a higher Btu input rating and may require a larger size gas line.
