This fireplace is only for use with the type of gas indicated on the rating plate.

Installation in Residential Garages

Gas utilization equipment in residential garages shall be installed so that all burners and burner ignition devices are located not less than 18" (457mm) above the floor.

Such equipment shall be located, or protected, so it is not subject to physical damage by a moving vehicle.

High Altitude

When installing this unit at an elevation above 2000 feet (in the United States) it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Generally, input should be reduced 4 percent for each 1000 feet above sea level. However, if the heating value of the gas has been reduced, this general rule may not apply. Check with local gas utility for proper orifice size identification.

Canadian High Altitude

Altitude: 0-4500feet(0-1370m)

APPLIES TO CANADIAN MODELS ONLY

When installing this unit at an elevation above 4500 feet (in Canada), check with local authorities.

Consult your local gas utility for assistance in determining the proper orifice for location.

Preparation

This direct vent gas fireplace and its components are tested and safe when installed in accordance with this Installation Manual. Report to your dealer any parts damaged in shipment, specifically check glass condition. Do not install unit with damaged, incomplete, or substitute parts. The vent system components and trim doors are shipped in separate packages. Read all instructions before starting installation and follow these instructions carefully during installation to insure maximum benefit and safety. Failure to follow them will void your warranty and may present a fire hazard.

The warranty will be voided by, and the warranter disclaims any responsibility for the following actions:

Installation of any damaged fireplace or vent system component.

Modification of the fireplace or direct vent system.

Installation other than as instructed by Empire Comfort System, Inc.

Improper positioning of the gas logs, glass door or lava rock.

Installation and/or use of any component part not manufactured or approved by manufacturer.

Planning Your Installation

Locating Your Direct Vent Gas Fireplace (Figure 5)

Figure 5

Note:** Island (C) and Room Divider (D) installation is possible as long as the horizontal portion of the vent system (H) does not exceed 20 feet with a minimum vertical run of 8 feet. See details in Venting Section. *When you install your Direct Vent Fireplace in (D) Room divider or (E) Flat on wall corner positions, a minimum of 6 inches clearance must be maintained from the perpendicular wall and the front edge of the appliance.

Note: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your local codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.

Note: Since some municipalities have additional local codes, it is always best to consult your local authority and installation code.

The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:

ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing and Fittings

ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of Other Than All-MetalConstruction

The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority having jurisdiction. The State of Massachusetts requires that a flexible appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.

VENTING RUNS

To Use the Vent Graph (Figure 8)

1.Determine the height of the center of the horizontal vent pipe. Using this dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph, locate the point it intersects with the slanted graph line.

2.From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line to the bottom of the graph.

3.Select the indicated dimension, and position the unit in accordance with same.

EXAMPLE A:

If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 22.5 feet, the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed 6.5 feet.

EXAMPLE B:

If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 6.5 feet, the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed 14.5 feet.

SPECIAL NOTE: For each 45 degree elbow installed in the horizontal run, the length of the horizontal run MUST be reduced by 18" (45cm). This does not apply if the 45 degree elbows are installed on the vertical part of the vent system.

Example: According to the chart the maximum horizontal vent length is 20' and if two 45 degree elbows are required in the horizontal vent it must be reduced to 17'.

The maximum number of 45 degree elbows permitted per side wall installation is two (2). These elbows can be installed in either the vertical or horizontal run.

Installation

Framing and Finishing (Figure 9)

1.Choose unit location.

2.Frame in fireplace with a header across the top. It is important to allow for finished face when setting the depth of the frame.

3.Attach fireplace to frame using adjustable frame. Preset depth to suit facing material (adjustable to 1/2", 5/8" or 3/4" depths).

4.Use (8) 1/2" hex-headscrews supplied in hardware package, to screw through slotted holes in drywall strip and then screw intopre-drilledholes on fireplace side. Measure from face of fireplace to face of drywall strip to determine final depth. (See Figure 9)

Figure 9

Attention: When DVF is installed in optional full cabinet mantel or corner mantel the (4) four nailing flanges shown in Figure 6 will not be installed on the side of outer casing. The DVF will be attached to the full cabinet mantel or corner mantel with the (2) two nailing flanges located on the top of the outer casing assembly.

Combustible Material (Figure 12)

No greeting cards, stockings or ornamentation of any type should be placed on or attached to the fireplace. The flow of heat can ignite combustibles.

Finishing (Figure 13)

Finish the walls with the material of your choice. Figure 11 shows the minimum vertical and corresponding maximum horizontal dimensions of mantels or other combustible projections above the top front edge of the fireplace.

Only non-combustiblematerials may be used to cover the black fireplace front.

WARNING: When finishing the fireplace never obstruct or modify the air inlet/outlet louvers in any manner. Provide adequate clearances around air openings into the combustion chamber.

Caution: If the joints between the finished wall and the fireplace surround (top and sides) are sealed, a 300° F minimum sealant material must be used. These joints are not required to be sealed. Onlynon-combustiblematerial (using 300° F minimum adhesive if needed), can be applied as facing to the fireplace surround.
