B. Glass Specifications

Hearth & Home Technologies appliances manufactured with tempered glass may be installed in hazardous locations such as bathtub enclosures as defined by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The tempered glass has been tested and certified to the requirements of ANSI Z97.1 andCPSC 16 CFR 1202 (Safety Glazing Certification CouncilSGCC# 1595 and1597. Architectural Testing, Inc. Reports02-31919.01 and02-31917.01).

This statement is in compliance with CPSC 16 CFR Section 1201.5 “Certification and labeling requirements” which refers to15 U.S. Code(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.

Note: This installation must conform with local codes. In the absence of local codes you must comply with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSIZ223.1-latestedition in the U.S.A. and the CAN/CGA B149 Installation Codes in Canada.

D. High Altitude Installations

U.L. Listed gas appliances are tested and approved without requiring changes for elevations from 0 to 2000 feet in the U.S.A. and Canada.

When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2000 feet, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000 feet above a 2000 foot elevation in the U.S.A., or 10% for elevations between 2000 and 4500 feet in Canada. If the heating value of the gas has been reduced, these rules do not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas utility.

If installing this appliance at an elevation above 4500 feet (in Canada), check with local authorities.

WARNING

Do NOT use this appliance if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been under water.

2 Getting Started

A. Design and Installation Considerations

Heat & Glo B-typevent gas appliances are designed to operate with all exhaust gases expelled to the outside of the building, and combustion air pulled from the room.

CAUTION

Check building codes prior to installation.

Installation MUST comply with local, regional, state and national codes and regulations.

Consult local building, fire officials or authorities having jurisdiction about restrictions, installation inspection, and permits.

When planning an appliance installation, it’s necessary to determine the following information before installing:

Where the appliance is to be installed. See Sections 3 and 4.

The vent system configuration to be used. See Sections

5 and 6.

Gas supply piping. See Sections 7 and 9.

Electrical wiring. See Sections 7 and 10.

Framing and finishing details. See Sections 3, 6 and 11.

Whether optional accessories—devicessuch as a fan, wall switch, or remotecontrol—aredesired.See Section 10.

WARNING

Fire Risk

Explosion Risk

Keep appliance dry.

Mold or rust may cause odors.

Water may damage controls.

Heat & Glo • 8000TV-OAK,8000TV-OAK-IPI,8000TVLP-OAKIPI2058-900Rev. L • 08/08

B. Negative Pressure

WARNING

Asphyxiation Risk.

Negative pressure can cause spillage of combustion fumes and soot.

Fireplace needs to draft properly for safety.

Draft is the pressure difference needed to vent fireplaces successfully. Considerations for successful draft include:

Preventing negative pressure

Location of fireplace and chimney

Negative pressure results from the imbalance of air available for the fireplace to operate properly. Causes for this imbalance include:

Exhaust fans (kitchen, bath, etc.)

Range hoods

Combustion air requirements for furnaces, water heaters and other combustion appliances

Clothes dryers

Location of return-airto furnace or air conditioning

Imbalances of the HVAC air handling system

Upper level air leaks (recessed lighting, attic hatch opening, duct leaks)

To minimize the effects of negative air pressure, the following must be considered:

Install the fresh air kit. Install the intake on the side of the house towards prevailing winds during the heating season.

Ensure adequate outdoor air is supplied for combustion appliances and exhaust equipment.

Ensure furnace and air conditioning return vents are not located in the immediate vicinity of the fireplace.

Avoid installing the fireplace near doors, walkways or small isolated spaces.

Recessed lighting should be of “sealed can” design; attic hatches weather stripped or sealed; and attic mounted ductwork and air handler joints and seams taped or sealed.

Basement installations should be avoided due to stack effect. Stack effect creates negative pressure in lower levels. Hearth & Home Technologies recommends the use of direct vent fireplaces in basements.

Location of the fireplace and chimney will affect performance. As shown in Figure 2.1, the chimney should:

Be installed through the warm space enclosed by the building envelope. This helps to produce more draft, especially during lighting and die-downof the fire.

Penetrate the highest part of the roof. This minimizes the effects of wind turbulence.

Be located away from trees, adjacent structures, uneven roof lines and other obstructions.

Offsets can restrict draft so their use should be minimized. Consider the fireplace location relative to floor and ceiling and attic joists.

B. Constructing the Appliance Chase

A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose the gas appliance 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.

Construction of the chase may vary with the type of building. These instructions are not substitutes for the requirements of local building codes. Local building codes MUST be checked.

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.

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 wall shield and ceiling 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.
