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/CGAB149 Installation 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 CSA C22.1Canadian 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 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.

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.

Introducing the

Heat-N-Glo

Gas Fireplaces

Pre-installation

Preparation

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.

Getting

Started

2

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.

For Vertical Terminations - To locate the vent and install the vent sections:

• Locate and mark the vent centerpoint on the underside of the roof, and drive a nail through the centerpoint.

• Make the outline of the roof hole around the centerpoint nail.

• The size of the roof hole framing dimensions depend on the pitch of the roof. There MUST BE a1-inch(25.4 mm) clearance from the vertical vent pipe to combustible materials.

• Mark the roof hole accordingly.

• Cover the opening of the installed vent pipes.

• Cut and frame the roof hole.

• Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the frame securely. Flashing anchored to the frame must withstand heavy winds.

• Continue to install concentric vent sections up through the roof hole (for inside vent installations) or up past the roof line until you reach the appropriate distance above the roof (for outside terminations).

A 1/8 inch (3 mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, should be provided for in the gas supply line leading to the unit’s shut-offvalve.

Locate the gas line access hole in the outer casing of the fireplace.

Open the fireplace lower grille, insert the gas supply line through the gas line hole, and connect it to the shut-offvalve.

When attaching the pipe, support the control so that the lines are not bent or torn.

After the gas line installation is complete, use a soap solution to carefully check all gas connections for leaks.

WARNING

DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

29

The gas line should be installed by a qualified service technician.

Step 7

Gas Pressure

Requirements

At the gas line access hole, use insulation to repack the space around the gas pipe.

Insert insulation from the outside of the fireplace and pack the insulation tightly to totally seal between the pipe and the outer casing.

WARNING

WHEN FINISHING THE FIREPLACE,

NEVER OBSTRUCT OR MODIFY THE 33 AIR INLET/OUTLET GRILLES IN ANY

MANNER.

CAUTION

1.Seal the joints.

2.Apply only noncombustible facing material to the fireplace surround.

Step 10

Installing Trim,

Logs, and

Ember Material

IF JOINTS BETWEEN THE FINISHED WALLS AND THE FIREPLACE SURROUND (TOP AND SIDES) ARE SEALED, A 300° F. MINIMUM SEALANT MATERIAL MUST BE USED. THESE JOINTS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BE SEALED. ONLY NON-COMBUSTIBLEMATERIAL (USING 300° F. MINIMUM ADHESIVE, IF NEEDED) CAN BE APPLIED AS FACING TO THE FIREPLACE SURROUND. SEE THE DIAGRAM SHOWN BELOW.

Figure 34. Sealant Material

Hearth Extensions

A hearth extension may be desirable for aesthetic reasons. However, ANSI or CAN/CGA testing standards do not require hearth extensions for gas fireplace appliances.

Installing the Trim

Combustible materials may be brought up to the specified clearances on the side and top front edges of the fireplace, but MUST NEVER overlap onto the front face. The joints between the finished wall and the fireplace top and sides can only be sealed with a 300° F. (149° C) minimum sealant.

WARNING

WHEN FINISHING THE FIREPLACE,

NEVER OBSTRUCT OR MODIFY THE

AIR INLET/OUTLET GRILLES IN ANY

MANNER.

Install optional marble and brass trim surround kits as desired. Marble, brass, brick, tile, or other noncombustible materials can be used to cover up the gap between the sheet rock and the fireplace.

Do not obstruct or modify the air inlet/outlet grilles. When overlapping on both sides, leave enough space

so that the bottom grille can be lowered and the trim 34 door removed.

Positioning the Logs

If the gas logs have been factory installed they should not need to be positioned.

If the logs have been packaged separately, refer to the installation instructions that accompany the logs.

Save the log instructions with this manual.

If sooting occurs, the logs might need to be repositioned slightly to avoid excessive flame impingement.

Placing the Ember Material

Two separate bags of ember material are shipped with this gas fireplace:

The bag labeled Golden Ember (GE-93)is flame colorant material.

The bag labeled Glowing Ember (050-721)is standard glowing ember material.

To place the ember material:

Remove the wing nuts and glass clips or tension springs around the glass door.

Remove the glass door from the unit.

Cover the top of the burner with a single layer of ember material. Then sprinkle GE-93on top of the burner.

Save the remaining ember materials for use during fireplace servicing.

Replace the glass door and a front trim door on the unit (see Replacement Parts Section of the manual.)

Replace the wing nut, glass clips, and tension springs.

Hand tighten the wing nuts.

35

1.Lift the trim door up and out of the unit.

2.Remove the wing nuts, glass clips, and the glass door from the unit.

CAUTION

1.Place the ember material onto the top of the burner.

CAUTION

Step 12

Lighting the

Fireplace

After the

Installation

37

Before lighting the fireplace, be sure to do the following:

Review safety warnings and cautions

Read the Safety and Warning Informationsection at the beginning of this Installers Guide.

Double-checkfor gas leaks

Before lighting the fireplace, double-checkthe unit for possible gas leaks.

Double-checkvent terminations and front grilles for obstructions.

Before lighting the fireplace, double-checkthe unit for possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent terminations or the front grilles.

Double-checkfor faulty components

Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE replaced with an approved component. Tampering with the fireplace components isDANGEROUS and voids all warranties.

A small amount of air will be in the gas supply lines. When first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is complete, the fireplace will light and will operate normally.

Subsequent lightings of the fireplace will not require this purging of air from the gas supply lines, unless the gas valve has been turned to the OFF position, in which case the air would have to be purged.

You’ve reviewed all safety warnings, you’ve checked the fireplace for gas leaks, you know the vent system is unobstructed, and you’ve checked for faulty components. Now you’re ready to light the fireplace.

WARNING

PLEASE REFER TO THE USER’S MANUAL FOR ALL CAUTIONS, SAFETY, AND WARNING INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE LIGHTING AND OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE.

LEAVE THIS INSTALLATION MANUAL WITH THE APPLIANCE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

Fireplace

Maintenance

Although the frequency of your fireplace servicing and maintenance will depend on use and the type of installation, you should have a qualified service technician perform an appliance check-upat the beginning of each heating season.
