DANGER:Carbonmonoxide poisoning may lead to death!

This fireplace must be installed by a qualified (certified or licensed) service person. It has a sealed gas combustion chamber that uses a coaxial pipe (pipe within a pipe and having the same center) venting system. It brings in fresh air for combustion through the outer pipe and combustion gases are exhausted through the inner pipe. If the glass door assembly and venting pipe are not properly seated, connected and sealed, carbon monoxide leakage (spillage) can occur.

Product Features

These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your direct-ventfireplace:

The venting system may be routed to the outsideofyourhomeinseveralways.Itmay vent through the roof (vertical) or it may vent to an outside/exterior wall (horizontal). The vent pipe installation is very important to allow for proper operation. You must follow the venting instructions very carefully for either vertical or horizontal applications.

This fireplace may be installed in any room of your house provided all local codes and these installation instructions are followed.

This fireplace does not require electricity to operate.

Only the blower requires electricity if installed. If you plan to install the blower at a later date, outlet must be wired at the bottom of the fireplace when framing.

Apiezo ignitor and ceramic electrode create sparks to ignite the pilot light. It does not require any matches, batteries or any other sources of ignition to light the pilot.

Each time you turn on your fireplace, you may notice some amount of condensation on the inside of the fireplace glass. This is normal and will disappear after 10-20minutes of operation.
