Air For Combustion and Ventilation

WARNING: This heater shall notbeinstalledinaroomorspace unlesstherequiredvolumeofindoor combustion air is provided by the method described in the

National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA54, the International Fuel Gas Code,or applicable local codes. Read the following instructionstoinsureproperfresh airforthisandotherfuel-burning appliances in your home.

Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New materials, increased insulation and new construction methods help reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners weather strip and caulk around windows and doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air in. During heating months, home owners want their homes as airtight as possible.

While it is good to make your home energy efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh air must enter your home. All fuel-burningappliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.

Exhaust fans, fireboxes, clothes dryers and fuel burning appliances draw air from the house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh air for these appliances. This will insure proper venting of vented fuel-burningappliances.

PROVIDING ADEQUATE VENTILATION

The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and Ventilation.

All spaces in homes fall into one of the three following ventilation classifications:

1.Unusually Tight Construction

2.Unconfined Space

3.Confined Space

The information on page 5 through 7 will help you classify your space and provide adequate ventilation.

Unusually Tight Construction

The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough fresh air for combustion and ventilation. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction, you must provide additional fresh air.

Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:

a.walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of one perm (6 x 10-11 kg perpa-sec-m2)or less with openings gasketed or sealedand

b.weather stripping has been added on openable windows and doors and

c.caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints around window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between wall-ceilingjoints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical and gas lines and at other openings.

If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 7.

If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow for Firebox Location, page 6.

Confined and Unconfined Space

The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 54defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per

1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space and an unconfined space as a space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space. Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed*, through openings not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.

* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are doorless passageways or ventilation grills between them.

DETERMINING FRESH-AIRFLOW FOR HEATER LOCATION

Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space

Use this work sheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.

Space: Includes the room in which you will install heater plus any adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills between the rooms.

1.Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).

Length x Width x Height =_______cu. ft. (volume of space)

Example: Space size 22 ft. (length) x 18 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space)

If additional ventilation to adjoining room is supplied with grills or openings, add the volume of these rooms to the total volume of the space.

2.Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.

_ _____ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)

Example: 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20 = 63,360 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)

3.Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.

4.Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual amount of

Btu/Hr used.

_ _________ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)

_ _________ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)

Example: 63,360 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)

79,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)

The space in the above example is a confined space because the actual Btu/Hr used is more than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support. You must provide additional fresh air. Your options are as follows:

A.Rework worksheet, adding the space of an adjoining room. If the extra space provides an unconfined space, remove door to adjoining room or add ventilation grills between rooms. See Ventilation Air From Inside Building, page 7.

B.Vent room directly to the outdoors. See

Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 7.

C.Install a lower Btu/Hr heater, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.

If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is an unconfined space. You will need no additional fresh air ventilation.

INSTALLATION

Continued

IMPORTANT: Vent-freegas log heaters add moisture to the air. Although this is beneficial, installing firebox in rooms without enough ventilation air may cause mildew to form from too much moisture. SeeAir for Combustion and Ventilation, page 5.

IMPORTANT: Makesurefireboxis level.If firebox is not level, log set will not work properly.

Note: Your firebox is designed to be used in zero clearance installations. Wall or framing material can be placed against any exterior surface on the rear, sides, top or bottom of your firebox, except where standoff spacers are integrally attached. If standoff spacers are attached to your firebox, these spacers can be placed directly against wall or framing materials. Use the dimensions shown for rough opening to create the easiest installation.

Use dimensions shown for rough openings to create the easiest installation (see Built-In Firebox Installation, page 9).

INSTALLATION CLEARANCES

WARNING: Maintain the minimum clearances. If you can, provide greater clearances from floor, ceiling and adjoining wall.

Carefully follow these instructions. This will ensure safe installation.

Minimum Wall and Ceiling Clearances (see Figure 4)

A.Clearances from the side of fireplace cabinet to any combustible material and wall should follow diagram in Figure 4.

Example: The face of a mantel, bookshelf, etc. is made of combustible material and protrudes 31/2" from the wall. This combustible material must be 4" from the side of the fireplace cabinet (see Figure 4).

B.Clearances from the top of firebox opening to ceiling should not be less than 42".

C.When firebox is installed on carpeting or other combustible material, other than wood flooring, firebox should be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of enclosure.

D.Clearances from bottom of firebox to the floor is 0".
