AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION

WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in a room or space unless the required volume of indoor combustion air is provided by the method described in theNational Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, theInternational Fuel Gas Code, or applicablelocalcodes.Readthe following instructions to insure proper fresh air for this and otherfuel-burningappliances 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 cold air out and 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 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 these three following ventilation classifications:

1.Unusually Tight Construction

2.Unconfined Space

3.Confined Space

The information on pages 7 through 9 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 9.

If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow for Heater Location, page 8.

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 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 9.

B.Vent room directly to the outdoors. See

Ventilation Air From Outdoors,page 9.

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.

For propane/LP units, the installer must supply an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11" and 14" of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, heater regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 14. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

CAUTION: Use only new, black iron or steel pipe. Inter-nally-tinnedcopper tubing may be used in certain areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2"diameterorgreatertoallow proper gas volume to fireplace. 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 fireplace

(see Figure 15).

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. Never use sealant on flare threads.

WARNING: Use pipe joint sealantthatisresistanttoliquid petroleum (LP) gas.

We recommend that you install a sediment trap in supply line as shown in Figure 15, page 14. Locate sediment trap where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply and fireplace.

Locate sediment trap where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into fireplace gas controls. If sediment trap is not installed or is installed wrong, fireplace may not run properly.

INSPECTING BURNERS

Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.

PILOT FLAME PATTERN

Figure 41 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. Figure 42 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 42

turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to

Appliance, page 21)

see Troubleshooting, page 26

Note: The correct 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

WARNING: Turn off fireplace and let cool before cleaning.

CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burner and circulating air passageways of fireplace clean. Inspect these areas of fireplace before each use. Have fireplace inspected yearly by a qualified service person. Fireplace may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.

WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air opening(s) of theburner(s)cleanmayresultin sooting and property damage.

BURNER INJECTOR HOLDER AND

PILOT AIR INLET HOLE

The primary air inlet holes allow the proper amount of air to mix with the gas. This provides a clean burning flame. Keep these holes clear of dust, dirt, lint and pet hair. Clean these air inlet holes prior to each heating season. Blocked air holes will create soot. We recommend that you clean the unit every three months during operation and have heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person.

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 thirty minutes.

2.Inspect burner, pilot and primary air inlet holes on injector holder for dust and dirt (see Figure 45).

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

4.Check injector holder located at end of 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 primary air holes on injector holder.

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

Clean pilot assembly also. A yellow tip on pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in pilot assembly.

There is a small pilot air inlet hole about two inches from where pilot flame comes out of pilot assembly (see Figure 46). With unit off, lightly blow air through air inlet hole. You may blow through a drinking straw if compressed air is not available.
