2 Getting Started

A. Design and Installation Considerations

CAUTION

Check building codes prior to installation.

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

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

When planning a fireplace installation, it is necessary to determine the following information before installing:

Where the fireplace 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 Section 7.

Framing and finishing details. See Sections 3, 6 and 8.

Whether optional accessories are desired. See Section 12.

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

Preventing negative pressure

Location of fireplace and chimney

WARNING

Asphyxiation Risk

Negative pressure can cause spillage of combustion fumes and soot. Fire needs to draft properly for safe operation.

B. Negative Pressure

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-airvents to 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 outside 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 a “sealed can” design; attic hatches weather stripped or sealed; attic mounted duct work 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.

Heat & Glo • EXCLAIM-36CWoodburning Fireplace •4013-093Rev G • 08/06

5

Location of the fireplace and chimney will affect performance.

As shown in Figure 2.1 the chimney should:

Be installed through the warm airspace 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.
