If the currennt one is not power vented and did not have flue problems, I am not clear why they want to power vent the new one - just one more thing to fail, plus will have to have electric power wired to it.

Power venting adds about $400-500 to the heater cost (on top of the normal $500 range), plus about $200-300 for the wiring, plus normal $250-400 installation cost would bring your total to around $1450-1700 range.
