VENTING AND INSTALLATION

1.Heat -N-Glogas inserts are designed for recessed installations into solid fuel Masonry or Factory Built Non Combustible fireplaces that have been installed in accordance with the National, Provincial, State and local building codes.

2.Minimum fireplace opening requirements are shown in Figure 1 of this installation manual. The firebrick (refactory) can be removed from a factory built fireplace in order to gain minimum gas insert opening requirements.

3.To assure top performance, safety and efficiency, inserts must be installed with an approved flue liner as per CAN/CGA B-149or National Fuel Code ANSI Z223 and these instructions.

!WARNING

THE SOLID FUEL FIREPLACE HAS BEEN CONVERTED FOR USE WITH GAS ONLY AND CANNOT BE USED FOR BURNING WOOD OR SOLID FUELS UNLESS ALL ORIGINAL PARTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND THE FIREPLACE HAS BEEN REAPPROVED BY THE AUTHORITY HAVING JURISDICTION.

4.The solid fuel fireplace’s flue damper must be fully locked in the open position or removed for installation.

5.The chimney must be cleaned and in good working order and constructed of noncombustible materials.

6.Make sure that all chimney cleanouts fit properly so air cannot leak into the chimney.

7.Install the insert without the trim surround and make all gas, venting, and electrical connections.

!WARNING

Under no circumstances cutting of sheet metal surfaces are allowed for installation.

If the factory built fireplace has no gas access holes provided, an

!access hole of 1” diameter (25mm) or less may be drilled through the lower sides or bottom of the combustion chamber in a proper workmanship like manner.

8.Install decorative trim surround. Please refer to instructions included with the trim surround.

!Ensure there are no obstructions to side air passages of decorative trim once installed on insert.

Vent System Installation Precautions

Before starting installation of vent kits, the installer should read these instructions and the Vent Kit Instructions to ensure that a proper vent installation is completed.

Consult your local Building Codes before beginning the Installation.

WARNING

THIS GAS INSERT AND VENT ASSEMBLY MUST BE VENTED DIRECTLY TO THE OUTSIDE AND MUST NEVER BE ATTACHED TO A CHIMNEY SERVING A SEPARATE SOLID FUEL BURNING APPLIANCE. EACH GAS APPLIANCE MUST USE A SEPARATE VENT SYSTEM. COMMON VENT SYSTEMS ARE PROHIBITED.

Vent System Approvals

Table 1 and Figure 3 through 5 shows the vent termination caps and systems approved for the use with these models. Approved vent system terminations are labeled for identification. 3-inchdiameter listed flexible aluminum or stainless steel gas vent is used for both the incoming combustion air and exhaust vent pipes. 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 manual.

Horizontal Venting

The vent system on this model CANNOT be terminated horizontally.

Vertical Venting

The vent pipes MUST be connected to the proper collars on the unitAND the exhaust vent pipeMUST be connected to the termination cap or the unit will not operate. The combustion air vent pipe CAN be connected to the termination cap or it can terminate inside the chimney. The bottom opening of the chimney must be sealed around the vent pipes if the combustion air vent is NOT connected to the termination cap. See Figures 3, 4 and 5.

NOTE: The minimum vertical rise (exhaust vent) is 14 feet and the maximum vertical rise is 50 feet. These dimensions are measured from the starting collars of the unit to the end of the last section of vent pipe See dimension V in Figure 3.

A vertical vent termination system installed on this model will include one (1) length of 3-inchflexible vent pipe for the combustion air, one (1)pipe-to-capadaptor, and one (1)SLK-991DAorSLK-980DVertical termination Cap.

NOTE: The damper of the masonry chimney may need to be removed to allow installation of the flexiblevent pipe.

This fireplace has been altered to accommodate an insert and should be inspected by a qualified person prior to re-useas a conventional fireplace.

NOTE: The above label, located in the instruction package, must be affixed to the existing fireplace prior to installation ofModelAT-GRAND.

For zero clearance, factory built woodburning fireplaces, the use of kit LINK-ZC-ADP,in place of the standard square flashing, will allow you to mount the adaptor and cap on metal pipe. Additionally, the use of kitFLASH-DAMPwill seal off the damper opening when terminating the inlet air vent pipe just above the damper. These two kits are recommended for zero clearance, factory built woodburning fireplaces.

 

Connecting the Vent Pipe

 

Install the 3-inchflexible vent pipes down through the

 

chimney. Attach and secure the bottom ends of the

 

flex pipes to the starting collars on the unit with 3

 

sheetmetal screws on each collar. Slide the gas insert

 

into place, and position any excess flex vent pipe back

 

up into the chimney.

 

Attach the pipe-to-capadaptor to the termination cap

 

and the top of the flexible vent pipe and set the cap in

 

place at the top of the chimney. See Figures 3, 4 & 5.

CAUTION

TO AVOID DOWNDRAFTS AND/OR COLD AIR

 

PROBLEMS, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO SEAL

 

OFF THE AREA BETWEEN THE TERMINATION

 

CAP AND THE TOP OF THE SOLID-FUEL

 

CHIMNEY OPENING INTO WHICH THE VENT

 

CAP HAS BEEN INSTALLED.

 

When using the LINK-DV4-30vent system, it is required

 

to seal around the flexible vent pipes in the damper

 

area. See Figure 3. Use fiberglass insulation or other

 

suitable non-combustiblematerial.
