1Approvals and Codes

Appliance Certification

The Heat-N-Glofireplace models discussed in thisInstallers Guide have been tested to certification standards and listed by the applicable laboratories.

Certification

MODEL: BE-41

LABORATORY: Underwriters Laboratories

TYPE: Direct Vent Gas Fireplace Heater

STANDARD: ANSI Z21.88•CGA2.33

High Altitude Installations

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

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/CGA-B149Installation 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 CSAC22.1 Canadian Electric Code (in Canada).

These models may be installed in a bedroom or bed-sittingroom in the U.S.A. and Canada.

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.

2Getting 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 and trim doors 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.

7

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.
