Getting Started

Introducing the Heat-N-GloGas Fireplaces

Heat-N-Glodirect vent gas fireplaces are designed to operate with all combustion air siphoned from outside of the building and all exhaust gases expelled to the outside.

The information contained in this Installers Guide, unless noted otherwise, applies to all models and gas control systems. Gas fireplace diagrams, including the dimensions, are shown in this section.

Pre-installPreparation

This gas fireplace and its components are tested and safe when installed in accordance with this Installers Guide. Report to your dealer any parts damaged in shipment, particularly the condition of the glass.Do not install any unit with damaged, incomplete, or substitute parts.

The vent system components are shipped in separate packages. The gas logs may be packaged separately and must be field installed.

Read all of the instructions before starting the installation. Follow these instructions carefully during the installation to ensure maximum safety and benefit. Failure to follow these instructions will void the owner’s warranty and may present a fire hazard.

The Heat-N-GloWarranty will be voided by, andHeat-N-Glodisclaims any responsibility for, the following actions:

Installation of any damaged fireplace or vent system component.

Modification of the fireplace or direct vent system.

Installation other than as instructed by Heat-N-Glo.

Improper positioning of the gas logs or the glass door.

Installation and/or use of any component part not manufactured and approved by Heat-N-Glo,not withstanding any independent testing laboratory or other party approval of such component part or accessory.

ANY SUCH ACTION MAY POSSIBLY CAUSE A FIRE HAZARD.

When planning a fireplace installation, it’s necessary to determine:

Where the unit is to be installed.

The vent system configuration to be used.

Gas supply piping.

Electrical wiring.

Framing and finishing details.

Whether optional accessories—devicessuch as a fan, wall switch, or remotecontrol—aredesired.

If the fireplace is to be installed on carpeting or tile, or on any combustible material other than wood flooring, the fireplace should be installed on a metal or wood panel that extends the full width and depth of the fireplace.

Installing the Fireplace

Constructing the Fireplace 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, Heat-N-Glorecommends that the inside surfaces be sheetrocked and taped for maximum air tightness.

To further prevent drafts, the firestops should be caulked to seal gaps. Gas line holes and other openings should be caulked or stuffed with insulation. If the unit is being installed on a cement slab, we recommend that a layer of plywood be placed underneath to prevent conducting cold up into the room. Be sure to include spark arrestors for woodburning units if they are required.

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 following 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.

Step 3. Installing the Vent System

A. Vent System Approvals

These models are approved to use D-seriesdirect vent pipe components and terminations (see Figures 4 and 5). Approved vent system components are labeled for identification. This pipe is tested and listed as an approved component of the fireplace. The pipe is tested to be run inside an enclosed wall. There is no requirement for inspection openings at each joint within the wall. There is no required pitch for horizontal vent runs.NO OTHER VENTING SYSTEMS OR COMPONENTS MAY BE USED.

Detailed installation instructions are included with each vent termination kit and should be used in conjunction with this

Installers Guide.

The flame and ember appearance may vary based on the type of fuel burned and the venting configuration used.

Identifying Vent Components

The vent systems installed on this gas fireplace may include one, two, or three 90° elbow assemblies. The relationships of vertical rise to horizontal run in vent configurations using 90° elbows MUST BE strictly adhered to. The rise to run relationships are shown in the venting drawings and tables. Refer to the diagrams on the next several pages.

NOTE: Two 45° elbows may be used in place of one 90° elbow. Rise to run ratios in the vent system must be followed if 45° elbows are used.

This model has vent starting collars on both the top and the back of the unit. Depending upon the installation, decide which ONE set of starting collars will be used to attach the vent system. The starting collar sealing cap must remain on the starting collarNOT used.

B. Installing Vent Components

After determining which set of starting collars will be used (top or rear), follow venting instructions accordingly.

Venting Out the Rear Vent

Remove the installed rear seal cap from the rear starting collars by cutting the strap at each end. (see Figure 18). Follow the vent configuration tables accordingly.

Remove the insulation from the REAR five inch flue, pull the heat shield out from outside of the firebox.

WARNING: THE TOP HEAT SHIELD (INSIDE

!THE FIREBOX) MUST REMAIN ATTACHED IF THE VENT SYSTEM IS ATTACHED TO THE REAR STARTING COLLARS. SEE FIGURE 18.

Venting Out the Top Vent

Remove the top vent collar seal cap and two pieces of insulation inside the top two starting collars (See Figure 18).

Remove the heat shield from inside the TOP five inch flue from outside of the firebox.

WARNING: THE REAR VENT COLLAR SEAL ! CAP MUST REMAIN ATTACHED TO THE REAR VENT COLLARS IF THE VENT SYSTEM IS AT-

TACHED TO THE TOP STARTING COLLARS.

WARNING: FAILURE TO REMOVE INSULATION ! IN THE SET OF COLLARS YOUARE USING

COULD CAUSE A FIRE.

! WARNING: YOU MUST LEAVE THE INSULATIONIN PLACE IN THE SET OF COLLARS YOUARE

NOT USING.

If your vertical vent component is over 10 feet, you may want to install the vertical baffle (located in the bag containing the install manual) to improve flame appearance. Center the vertical baffle on the 5” flue being used, and with self tapping screws secure the baffle to the inside of the firebox.

1. Attach the First Vent Component to Starting Collars

To attach the first vent component to the starting collars of the fireplace:

Apply a 3/8 inch (9.5mm) bead of stove cement around the 5 inch (127mm) fireplace starting collar.

Make sure that the fiberglass gasket supplied in the manual bag seals between the first 8-5/8inch (219mm) vent component and the outer fireplace wrap. Using 2 selftapping screws from the manual bag, secure that gasket to the outer wrap (see Figure 19).

2. Continue Adding Vent Components

WARNING: INSTALLATION OF THIS FIRE- ! PLACE REQUIRES THE USE OF HEAT SHIELD570-290ABOVE THE FIRST 900 ELBOW IN

THE VENTING SYSTEM.

To Install the Heat Shield:

1.Determine if the heat shield is required. Do so by measuring the vertical distance between the top horizontal surface of the elbow to any combustible surface above. If the distance is more than 4 inches, the heat shield is NOT required. If it is 4 inches or less, the heat shieldIS REQUIRED. Install per the following steps. See Figure 21.

2.Fasten the shield in place using the four pilot holes provided in the part. The shield should be oriented such that the 13 1/8 inch dimension (longest dimension) is running in the same direction the elbow is pointing. The shield should be centered directly above the elbow, and positioned so that it creates a 1/2 inch airspace between the shield and the combustible surface. See Figure 22.

Continue adding vent components, locking each succeeding component into place.

Ensure that each succeeding vent component is securely fitted and locked into the preceding component in the vent system.

90° elbows may be installed and rotated to any point around the preceding component’s vertical axis. If an elbow does not end up in a locked position with the preceding component, attach with a minimum of two (2) sheet metal screws.

Figure 24. Adding Venting Components

3. Install Support Brackets

For Horizontal Runs - The vent system must be supported every five (5) feet of horizontal run by a horizontal pipe support.

To install support brackets for horizontal runs:

Place the pipe supports around the vent pipe.

Nail the pipe supports to the framing members.

For Vertical Runs - The vent system must be supported every eight (8) feet (2.4m) above the fireplace flue outlet by wall brackets.

To install support brackets for vertical runs:

Attach wall brackets to the vent pipe and secure the wall bracket to the framing members with nails or screws.

For Horizontal Runs - Firestops are REQUIREDon both sides of a combustible wall through which the vent passes.

NOTE: Model DVK-01TRDdoes not need an exterior firestop on an exterior combustible wall.

To install firestops for horizontal runs that pass through either interior or exterior walls:

• Cut a 12” x 12” (305mm x 305mm) hole through the wall.

NOTE: The center of the hole is one (1) inch (25.4mm) above the center of the horizontal vent pipe.

Position the firestops on both sides of the hole previously cut and secure the firestops with nails or screws.

The heat shields of the firestops MUST BE placed towards the top of the hole.

Continue the vent run through the firestops.

For Vertical Terminations - To locate the vent and install the vent sections:

Locate and mark the vent centerpoint on the underside of the roof, and drive a nail through the centerpoint.

Make the outline of the roof hole around the centerpoint nail.

The size of the roof hole framing dimensions depend on the pitch of the roof. There MUST BE a1-inch(25.4mm) clearance from the vertical vent pipe to combustible materials.

Mark the roof hole accordingly.

Cover the opening of the installed vent pipes.

Cut and frame the roof hole.

Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the frame securely. Flashing anchored to the frame must withstand heavy winds.

Continue to install concentric vent sections up through the roof hole (for inside vent installations) or up past the roof line until you reach the appropriate distance above the roof (for outside terminations).

!WARNING: MAJOR U.S. BUILDING CODES

SPECIFY MINIMUM CHIMNEY AND/OR VENT HEIGHT ABOVE THE ROOF TOP. THESE MINIMUM HEIGHTS ARE NECESSARY IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY. SEE THE FOLLOWING DIAGRAM FOR MINIMUM HEIGHTS, PROVIDED THE TERMINATION CAP IS AT LEAST TWO (2) FEET FROM A VERTICAL WALL AND2-FEETBELOW AHORIZONTAL OVERHANG.

NOTE: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the outside of the building.

To seal the roof hole, and to divert rain and snow from the vent system:

Attach a flashing to the roof using nails, and use a nonhardening mastic around the edges of the flashing base where it meets the roof.

Attach a storm collar over the flashing joint to form a water-tightseal. Placenon-hardeningmastic around the joint, between the storm collar and the vertical pipe.

Slide the termination cap over the end of the vent pipe and rotate the pipe clockwise 1/4 turn.

Step 6. 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 state of Massachusetts installation must be performed by a licensed plumber or gas fitter).

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 (13mm) 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 State 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 1/2” in diameter and it does not penetrate the actual firebox.

The gap between the supply piping and gas access hole can be plugged with non-combustibleinsulation to prevent cold air infiltration.

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, use a soap solution to carefully check all gas connections for leaks.

WARNING: DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME TO

!CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

At the gas line access hole, use insulation to re-packthe space around the gas pipe.

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

Step 10. 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 finish wall material (usually sheetrock or wood) 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 off of the tabs on the glass frame. Remove glass door from the unit (see Figure 42).

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.

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 onto the tabs on the glass frame.

Glass Specifications:

8000TRD: 26 1/2 X 42 1/2 TEMPERED

Heat-N-Glofireplaces manufactured with tempered glass may be installed in hazardous locations such as bathtub enclosures as defined by the CPSC. The tempered glass has been tested and certified to the requirements of ANSI Z97.1- 1984 and CPSC 16 CFR 1202. (Safety Glazing Certification Council SGCC # 1595 and 1597. Architectural Testing, Inc. Reports02-31919.01and02-31917.01.)

This statement is in compliance with SPCS 16 CFR Section 1201.5 “Certification and labeling requirements” which refers to 15 USC 2063 stating “…Such certificate shall accompany the product or shall otherwise be furnished to any distributor or retailer to whom the product is delivered.”

Some local building codes require the use of tempered glass with permanent marking in such locations. Glass meeting this requirement is available from the factory. Please contact your dealer or distributor to order.

Step 11. 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 someu 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 12. 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’SMANUAL FOR ALL CAUTIONS, SAFETY, AND WARNING INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE LIGHTING AND OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE.

After the Installation
