How can I wire an existing power vent to a therm performance…

Customer Question
Hi. How can I...

Hi. How can I wire an existing power vent to a therm performance water heater?

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

Not a problem at all. I need to know what wires turn the heater on and I can rewrite my power vent to it.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The existing power vent worked off a pressure switch on the old heater. The new heater is electronic. The Honeywell thermostat does not have a port for the old pressure switch.
