A power vent creates a steady and known draft for an appliance. It does not matter whether the appliance is highly efficient or low efficiency to a power vent. However, the type of appliance attached to a brick chimney is very important. A high efficiency appliance will wet down the inside of a mortar chimney and slowly destroy it. As the EPA and DOE are always pressing for more efficiency, expect all future appliances to be direct vented.
