Installation Codes

The fireplace installation must conform to local codes. Before installing the fireplace, consult the local building code agency to ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable codes, including permits and inspections.

In the absence of local codes, the fireplace installation must conform to the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 (in the United States) or the CAN/CGAB149 Installation Codes (in Canada). The appliance must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes with the National Electric Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 (in the United States), or to the CSA C22.1 Canadian Electric Code (in Canada).

These models (natural gas and propane) can be installed in a bedroom (in the United States) which has a total volume of unconfined space appropriate to the particular installation. Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA54 (current edition). The Uniform Mechanical Code - (current edition), and local Building Officials for the options allowed in obtaining an effective bedroom volume of unconfined space.

These models (natural gas and propane) can be installed in a bedroom (in Canada) if a thermostat (Model WH-STAT)is installed with the unit. Consult local code authorities. Detailed installation instructions for ModelWH-STATare included with the kit.

High Altitude Installations

U.L. Listed fireplaces are tested and approved for elevations from 0 to 2,000 feet in the U.S.A. and are tested and approved for elevations from 0 to 4,500 feet in Canada.

When installing this fireplace at an elevation above 2,000 feet (in the United States), it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input should be reduced four percent (4%) for each 1,000 feet above sea level, unless the heating value of the gas has been reduced, in which case this general rule will not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas utility.

When installing this fireplace at an elevation between 2,000 and 4,500 feet (in Canada), the input rating must be reduced by ten percent (10%).

When installing this fireplace at an elevation above 4,500 feet (in Canada), check with local authorities.

Consult your local gas utility for assistance in determining the proper orifice for your location.

NOTE: DIMENSIONS SHOWN IN INCHES

Figure 3. Framing Dimensions

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).

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 a4-inchflexible 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.

A. Vent System Approvals

Model 8000TVC is approved to use 6-inch(152mm) diameterB-typevent.B-typevent must be used when the vent system is within combustible construction.

These models may also use single wall rigid or flexible gas vent IF andONLY IF the vent system is installed withinnon-combustibleconstruction such as a masonry chimney. The same diameter noted above forB-typevent must be used forsingle-wallvent. See Figure 5.

For B-typevent the clearance to combustibles is1-inch.Follow vent manufacturersREQUIRED clearances.

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

B. System Components.

Vent System Configuration

RISE TO RUN RATIO = 2:1

MAXIMUM TOTAL HORIZONTAL RUN = 15 FT.MINIMUM TOTAL VERTICAL RISE = 9 FT.

MAXIMUM NO. Of ELBOWS: 2 - 90o or 4 - 45o

Plan and install the vent system using the parameters shown above.

WARNING: YOU MUST NOT EXCEED THESE PARAMETERS.

Connect a B-Typevent component to the flue outlet collar. Look at the vent pipe through the holes in the 10 5/8” ring to check that the vent pipe is attached.

NOTE: It is always better to first attach a straight section of vent to the unit before attaching an elbow. Avoid using elbows in the vent system if possible.

A 90-degreeelbow can be attached directly to the unit. If it is, it can be followed by aMAXIMUM 15-feethorizontal run, a second90-degreeelbow ending in a minimum 30 foot vertical.

A minimum of 9 foot vertical rise ending in a listed termination cap is required for the unit.

Continue to add vent components, until the vent run is completed.

WARNING: YOU MUST NOT EXCEED A TOTAL MAXIMUM HORIZONTAL RUN OF 15 FEET FOR THE ENTIRE VENT SYSTEM.
