1Approvals and Codes

Appliance Certification

The Heat & Glo fireplace model discussed in this Installers Guide has been tested to certification standards and listed by the applicable laboratories.

Certification

MODEL: GEM42

LABORATORY: Underwriters Laboratories

TYPE: Direct Vent Gas Fireplace Heater

STANDARD: ANSIZ21.88-2000•CSA2.33-M98•UL307B

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.

High Altitude Installations

U.L. Listed gas appliances are tested and approved without requiring changes for elevations from 0 to 2,000 feet in the U. S. A. and in Canada.

When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2,000 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 4,500 feet (in Canada), check with local authorities.

2Getting Started

Introducing the Heat & Glo Gas Fireplaces

Heat & Glo direct 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.

The Heat & Glo Warranty will be voided by, and Heat & Glo disclaims 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 & 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 & 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.

3Installing the Fireplace

Constructing the Fireplace Chase

A chase is a vertical box-likestructure built to enclose the gas fireplace 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.

CAUTION: TREATMENT OF FIRESTOP SPACERS AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE CHASE MAY VARY WITH THE TYPE OF BUILDING. THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT SUBSTITUTES FOR THE REQUIREMENTS OF LOCAL BUILDING CODES. THEREFORE, YOUR LOCAL BUILDING CODESMUST BE CHECKED TO DETERMINE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THESE STEPS.

Factory-builtfireplace 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.

This means that the 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, Heat & Glo recommends that the inside surfaces be sheetrocked and taped for maximum air tightness.

To further prevent drafts, the firestops should be caulked to seal gaps. Gas line holes and other openings should be caulked or stuffed with insulation. If the unit is being installed on a cement slab, we recommend that a layer of plywood be placed underneath to prevent conducting cold up into the room. Be sure to include spark arrestors for woodburning units if they are required.

THE CHASE SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTED SO THATALL CLEARANCES TO THE FIREPLACE ARE MAINTAINED AS SPECIFIED WITHIN THIS INSTALLERS GUIDE.

Step 1. Locating the Fireplace

The following diagram shows space and clearance requirements for locating a fireplace within a room.

Clearance Requirements

The top, back, and sides of the fireplace are defined by stand-offs.The minimum clearance to a perpendicular wall extending past the face of the fireplace is 12” (304.8 mm). The back of the fireplace may be recessed 17 1/2” (437.5 mm) into combustible construction.
