3Installing the Fireplace

Constructing the Chase

A chase is a vertical box-likestructure built to enclose the gas fireplace and/or its vent system. Vertical vents that run on the outside of a building may be, but are not required to be, installed inside a chase.

CAUTION: TREATMENT OF FIRESTOP SPACERS AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE CHASE MAY VARY WITH THE TYPE OF BUILDING. THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT SUBSTITUTES FOR THE REQUIREMENTS OF LOCAL BUILDING CODES. THEREFORE, YOUR LOCAL BUILDING CODESMUST BE CHECKED TO DETERMINE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THESE STEPS.

Factory-builtfireplace chases should be constructed in the manner of all outside walls of the home to prevent cold air drafting problems. The chase should not break the outside building envelope in any manner.

This means that the walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor of the chase should be insulated. Vapor and air infiltration barriers should be installed in the chase as per regional codes for the rest of the home. Additionally, in regions where cold air infiltration may be an issue, the inside surfaces may be sheetrocked and taped for maximum air tightness.

To further prevent drafts, the firestops should be caulked with high temperature caulk to seal gaps. Gas line holes and other openings should be caulked with high temp caulk or stuffed with unfaced insulation. If the appliance is being installed on a cement slab, a layer of plywood may be placed underneath to prevent conducting cold up into the room.

THE CHASE SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTED SO THAT ALL CLEARANCES TO THE FIREPLACE ARE MAINTAINED AS SPECIFIED WITHIN THIS INSTALLERS GUIDE.

Step 1. Locating the Fireplace

The diagram shows space and clearance requirements for locating a fireplace within a room.

Clearance Requirements

The top, back, and sides of the fireplace are defined by stand-offs.The minimum clearance to a perpendicular wall extending past the face of the fireplace is one inch (25 mm). The back of the fireplace may be recessed 21 1/2 inches (546 mm) into combustible construction.

The minimum clearance from the top face of the fireplace to combustible finishing materials such as drywall, is one inch (25mm).

Step 2. Framing the Fireplace

Fireplace framing can be built before or after the fireplace is set in place. Framing should be positioned to accommodate wall coverings and fireplace facing material. The diagram below shows framing reference dimensions.

CAUTION: MEASURE FIREPLACE DIMENSIONS AND VERIFY FRAMING METHODS AND WALL COVERING DETAILS BEFORE FRAMING.

Framing should be constructed of 2 X 4 lumber or heavier.

Framing Dimensions

Step 3. Negative Pressure Make-upAir

Negative Pressure warning: When negative pressure is present, an atmospherically vented fireplace (with a draft hood) may not function properly and it may down draft. In the case of a gas appliance, spillage of the combustion gases may occur.This may create a dangerous carbon monoxide situation in the house.

The causes of negative pressure to a house can include the following:

Stack effect in the building.

Exhaust only appliances (mechanically and atmospherically vented).

Inadequate make-upair (which is increasingly more prevalent in new construction).

NOTE: This fireplace will operate correctly only if adequate ventilation is provided to allow proper draft to the fireplace system. Heat & Glo assumes no responsibility for the improper performance of the fireplace system caused by inadequate draft due to environmental conditions, down drafts, tight sealing construction of the structure, or mechanical exhausting devices which create a negative air pressure within the structure where the fireplace is located.

It is recommended that all natural venting non-airtight gas fireplaces have outside air connected to them. It is also recommended that the building be mechanically or passively balanced to allow atmospherically vented appliances, such as top vented gas fireplaces with draft hoods, to draft properly. If the home experiences negative pressure or is likely to experience negative pressure, connection to an outside air source is mandatory.

Installing Optional Outside Make-upAir:

This unit is equipped to accept outside air. By using outside make-upair, the amount of room air used for combustion will be reduced. It is recommended that anAK-TVair kit be used with this appliance.

!WARNING: IN A NEGATIVE PRESSURE CONDITION (LIKELY TO OCCUR IN NEW HOMES THAT DO NOT HAVE ADEQUATE MAKE-UPAIR) THE OUTSIDE AIR KIT MUST BE INSTALLED TO OBTAIN PROPER PERFORMANCE AND TO HELP PREVENT SPILLAGE OF COMBUSTION GASES.

A 4-inchside collar/damper (found inAK-TVKit) must be installed on the fireplace by attaching the side collar to the outer wrap of the fireplace at theright-handrear corner using sheetmetal screws. See Figure 4. Attach one end of a 4- inch flexible air duct (not provided in theAK-TVKit) to the side collar and the other end of the duct to themake-upair termination cap. Use plastic tie straps to secure the ends of the flex duct to each collar.

Air Damper

Before lighting the burner, open the damper. Close the damper when the burner is off.

Detailed installation instructions for Model AK-TVOutside Air kit are found in the kit.

Step 7. The Gas Supply Line

NOTE: Have the gas supply line installed in accordance with local building codes by a qualified installer approved and/or licensed as required by the locality. (In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts installation must be performed by a licensed plumber).

NOTE: Before the first firing of the fireplace, the gas supply line should be purged of any trapped air.

NOTE: Consult local building codes to properly size the gas supply line leading to the 1/2 inch (13 mm) hook-upat the unit.

This gas fireplace is designed to accept a 1/2 inch (13 mm) gas supply line.

To install the gas supply line:

A listed (and Commonwealth of Massachusetts approved) 1/2 inch (13mm) tee-handlemanualshut-offvalve and a listed flexible gas connector are connected to the 1/2 inch (13mm) inlet of the control valve.NOTE: If substituting for these components, please consult local codes for compliance.

Locate the gas line access hole in the outer casing of the fireplace.

The gas line may be run from either side of the fireplace provided the hole in the outer wrap does not exceed 2” in diameter and it does not penetrate the actual firebox.

Open the fireplace lower grille, insert the gas supply line through the gas line hole, and connect it to the shut-offvalve.

When attaching the pipe, support the control so that the lines are not bent or torn.

After the gas line installation is complete, all connections must be tightened and checked for leaks with a commercially available, non-corrosiveleak check solution. Be sure to rinse off all leak check solution following testing.

!WARNING: DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

Insert insulation from the outside of the fireplace and pack the insulation tightly to totally seal between the pipe and the outer casing.

At the gas line access hole the gap between the supply piping and gas access hole can be plugged with noncombustible insulation to prevent cold air infiltration.

Hearth Extensions

A hearth extension may be desirable for aesthetic reasons. However,ANSI or CAN/CGAtesting standards do not require hearth extensions for gas fireplace appliances.

Note: There are 3 metal tabs holding thenon-combustibleboard in place for shipping. These tabs are to be cut off or bent back before finishing around the fireplace front.

Step 11. Installing Trim, Logs and Ember Material

Installing the Trim

Combustible materials may be brought up to the specified clearances on the side and top front edges of the fireplace, but MUST NEVER overlap onto the front face. The joints between the finished wall and the fireplace top and sides can only be sealed with a 300° F (149° C) minimum sealant.

!WARNING: WHEN FINISHING THE FIREPLACE, NEVER OBSTRUCT OR MODIFY THE AIR INLET/ OUTLET GRILLES IN ANY MANNER.

Install optional marble and brass trim surround kits as desired. Marble, brass, brick, tile, or other non-combustiblematerials can be used to cover up the gap between the sheet rock and the fireplace.

Do not obstruct or modify the air inlet/outlet grilles. When overlapping on both sides, leave enough space so that the bottom grille can be lowered and the trim door removed.

Positioning the Logs

If the gas logs have been factory installed they should not need to be positioned. If the logs have been packaged separately, refer to the instructions that accompany the logs. Save the log instructions with this manual.

If sooting occurs, the logs might need to be repositioned slightly to avoid excessive flame impingement.

Placing the Ember Material

Ember material is shipped with this gas fireplace. To place the ember material:

Pull the four glass latches out of the groove on the glass frame. Remove glass door from the unit (see Figure 30).

Embers CANNOT be placed directly over ports. Care should be taken not to cover the lighting trail of ports (from back to front).

When placing Glowing embers onto the burner care should be taken so that the ports are not covered. Place the embers along side the port trail, but not on or in between the ports. Failure to follow this procedure will likely cause lighting and sooting problems.

Place Mystic embers on areas of base refractory away from port holes. Use this material to give your fireplace a realistic ash bed.

Save the remaining ember materials for use during fireplace servicing.

Replace the glass door and a front trim door on the unit.

Pull out and latch the glass clips into the groove on the glass frame.

Figure 16. Placement of the Ember Material

Step 12. Before Lighting the Fireplace

Before lighting the fireplace, be sure to do the following:

Remove all paperwork from underneath the fireplace. Review safety warnings and cautions

Read the Safety and Warning Informationsection at the beginning of this Installers Guide.

Double-checkfor gas leaks

Before lighting the fireplace, double-checkthe unit for possible gas leaks.

Double-checkvent terminations and front grilles for obstructions.

Before lighting the fireplace, double-checkthe unit for possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent terminations or the front grilles.

Double-checkfor faulty components

Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE replaced with an approved component. Tampering with the fireplace components isDANGEROUS and voids all warranties.

A small amount of air will be in the gas supply lines. When first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is complete, the fireplace will light and will operate normally.

Subsequent lightings of the fireplace will not require this purging of air from the gas supply lines, unless the gas valve has been turned to the OFF position, in which case the air would have to be purged.

NOTE: The fireplace should be run 3 to 4 hours on the initialstart-up.Turn it off and let it cool completely. Remove and clean the glass. Replace the glass and run the fireplace for an additional 8 hours. This will help to cure the products used in the paint and logs.

During this break-inperiod it is recommended that some windows in the house be opened for air circulation. This will help avoid setting off smoke detectors, and help eliminate any odors associated with the fireplace’s initial burning.

Step 13. Lighting the Fireplace

You’ve reviewed all safety warnings, you’ve checked the fireplace for gas leaks, you know the vent system is unobstructed, and you’ve checked for faulty components. Now you’re ready to light the fireplace.

!WARNING: PLEASE REFER TO THE USER’S MANUAL FOR ALL CAUTIONS, SAFETY, AND

WARNING INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE LIGHTING AND OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE.

After the Installation

!LEAVE THIS INSTALLATION MANUAL WITH THE APPLIANCE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
