IT must unless your in a custom home where you have any real say. New home builders do not install B-vent chimneys wich is what you would need for a conventional water heater..

Your best option really would be to request a DV tank. A direct vent tank. Its the same as a conventional tank with a dual vent that brings in outdoor combustion air in one pipe and in the other exhaust.
