Air for Combustion and Ventilation

WARNING: This heater shall notbeinstalledinaroomorspace unless the required volume of indoorcombustionairisprovided 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, fireplaces, clothes dryers and fuelburningappliancesdrawairfromthehouse 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.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION

Continued

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 pages 6 through 8 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 watervaporretarderwitharatingofone 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 these three criteria, you must provide additional fresh air. See

Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 8.

If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Fireplace Location.

DETERMINING FRESH-AIRFLOW

FOR FIREPLACE 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 fireplace 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 16 ft. (length) x 14 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 1792 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: 1792 cu. ft. (volume of space) x

20 = 35,840 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)

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

___________ Btu/Hr

Gas water heater*

___________ Btu/Hr

Gas furnace

___________ Btu/Hr

Vented gas heater

___________ Btu/Hr

Gas fireplace logs

___________ Btu/Hr

Other gas appliances* +_________ Btu/Hr

Confined and Unconfined Space

The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 54 defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space and an unconfined space as a space whosevolumeisnotlessthan50cubicfeetper 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space.Roomscommunicatingdirectlywiththe 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.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION

Continued

The space in the previous 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.

B.Vent room directly to the outdoors. See

Ventilation Air From Outdoors.

C.Install a lower Btu/Hr fireplace, 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.

WARNING:Iftheareainwhich theheatermaybeoperateddoes notmeettherequiredvolumefor indoor combustion air, combustion and ventilation air shall be provided by one of the methods described in theNational Fuel GasCode,ANSIZ223.1/NFPA54, theInternational Fuel Gas Code, or applicable local codes.

VENTILATION AIR

Ventilation Air From Inside Building

This fresh air would come from an adjoining unconfined space. When ventilating to an adjoining unconfined space, you must provide two permanent openings: one within 12" of the ceiling and one within 12" of the floor on the wall connecting the two spaces (see options 1 and 2, Figure 5). You can also remove door into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 5). Follow the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and Ventilation for required size of ventilation grills or ducts.

IMPORTANT: For natural gas, check gas line pressure before connecting fireplace to gas line. Gas line pressure must be no greater than 14" of water. If gas line pressure is higher, heater regulator damage could occur.

CAUTION:Neverconnectpropane/LP fireplace directly to the propane/LPsupply.Thisfireplace requires an external regulator

(notsupplied).Installtheexternal regulator between the fireplace and propane/LP supply.

For propane/LP units, the installer must supply anexternalregulator.Theexternalregulatorwill reduceincominggaspressure.Youmustreduce incoming gas pressure to between 11" and 14" ofwater.Ifyoudonotreduceincominggaspressure, fireplace regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 13. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

CAUTION:Useonlynew,blackironorsteelpipe.Internally-tinnedcoppertubingmaybeusedincertainareas.Checkyourlocalcodes. Usepipeof1/2"orgreaterdiameter toallowpropergasvolumetofireplace. If pipe is too small, undue loss of volume will occur.

Installation must include an equipment shutoff valve, union and plugged 1/8" NPTtap. Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook up.

NPT tap must be upstream from heater (see Figure 14).

IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve in an accessible location. The equipment shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.

Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.

Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT threads. This will prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged fireplace valves.

WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.

Inspecting Burners

Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.

PILOT FLAME PATTERN

Figure 29 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. Figure 30 shows an incorrect pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not touching the thermocouple. This will cause the thermocouple to cool. When the thermocouple cools, the fireplace will shut down.

If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown in Figure 30

turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 19.

see Troubleshooting, page 22.

Note: The pilot flame on natural gas units will have a slight curve, but flame should be blue and have no yellow or orange color.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Continued

We also recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot assembly clean and free of dust and dirt. To clean these parts we recommend using compressed air no greater than 30 PSI.

Your local computer store, hardware store or home center may carry compressed air in a can. If using compressed air in a can, please follow the directions on the can. If you don’t follow directions on the can, you could damage the pilot assembly.

1.Shut off unit including pilot. Allow unit to cool for at least 30 minutes.

2.Inspect burner, pilot and primary air inlet holes on orifice holder for dust and dirt

(see Figure 33).

3.Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner.

4.Check the orifice holder located at the end of the burner tube again. Remove any large particles of dust, dirt, lint or pet hair with a soft cloth or vacuum cleaner nozzle.

5.Blow air into the primary air holes on the orifice holder.

6.In case any large clumps of dust have now been pushed into the burner repeat steps 3 and 4.

Clean the pilot assembly also. A yellow tip on the pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in the pilot assembly. There is a small pilot air
