Downflow models GD(H,S) ARE NOT APPROVED FOR HORIZONTAL OR UPFLOW INSTALLATIONS. For these models, use only the instructions for downflow installation only.

WARNING

TO PREVENT POSSIBLE EQUIPMENT DAMAGE, PROPERTY DAMAGE,

PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH, THE FOLLOWING BULLET POINTS MUST BE OBSERVED WHEN INSTALLING THIS UNIT.

Follow the instructions listed below when selecting a furnace location. Refer also to the guidelines provided in Section V, Combustion and Ventilation Air Requirements.

Centrally locate the furnace with respect to the proposed or existing air distribution system.

Ensure the temperature of the return air entering the furnace is between 55°F and 100°F when the furnace is heating.

If the furnace is installed in an application where the typical operating sound level of a furnace is deemed objectionable, an optional sound reduction kit is available. Consult your local distributor for more details.

Provisions must be made for venting combustion products outdoors through a proper venting system. The length of flue pipe could be a limiting factor in locating the furnace.

Ensure adequate combustion air is available for the furnace. Improper or insufficient combustion air can expose building occupants to gas combustion products that could include carbon monoxide. Refer to Section V, Combustion and Ventilation Air Requirements.

The furnace must be level. If the furnace is to be set on a floor that may become wet or damp at times, the furnace should be supported above the floor on a concrete base sized approximately 1-1/2"larger than the base of the furnace.

Ensure upflow or horizontal furnaces are not installed directly on carpeting, or any other combustible material. The only combustible material allowed is wood.

Exposure to contaminated combustion air will result in safety and performance-relatedproblems. Do not install the furnace where the combustion air is exposed to the following substances:

chlorinated waxes or cleaners chlorine-basedswimming pool chemicals water softening chemicals

deicing salts or chemicals carbon tetrachloride halogen type refrigerants

cleaning solutions (such as perchloroethylene) printing inks

paint removers varnishes hydrochloric acid cements and glues

antistatic fabric softeners for clothes dryers and masonry acid washing materials

If the furnace is used in connection with a cooling unit, install the furnace upstream or in parallel with the cooling unit coil. Premature heat exchanger failure will result if the cooling unit coil is placed ahead of the furnace.

If the furnace is installed in a residential garage, position the furnace so that the burners and ignition source are located not less than 18 inches (457 mm) above the floor. Protect the furnace from physical damage by vehicles.

If the furnace is installed horizontally, the furnace access doors must be vertical so that the burners fire horizontally into the heat exchanger. Do not install the unit with the access doors on the “up/top” or “down/ bottom” side of the furnace.

LOCATIONREQUIREMENTS ANDCONSIDERATIONS

Do not connect this furnace to a chimney flue that serves a separate appliance designed to burn solid fuel.

For counterflow installations, the air conditioning coil must be downstream from the heat exchanger of the furnace.

Counterflow installation over a noncombustible floor. Before setting the furnace over the plenum opening, ensure the surface around the opening is smooth and level. A tight seal should be made between the furnace base and floor by using a silicon rubber caulking compound or cement grout.

Counterflow installation over a combustible floor. If installation over a combustible floor becomes necessary, use an accessory subbase (see Specification Sheet applicable to your model for details). A special accessory subbase must be used for upright counterflow unit installations over any combustible material including wood. Follow the instructions with the subbase for proper installations. Do not install the furnace directly on carpeting, tile, or other combustible material other than wood flooring. (NOTE: The subbase will not be required if an air conditioning coil is installed between the supply air opening on the furnace and the floor.

Vent Pipe Clearance to Combustibles- 6" using Single Wall Connector or 1" using B-1vent.

Top - 1"

Back - 0"

Do not operate a summer exhaust fan. Close fireplace dampers;

d.Follow the lighting instructions. Place the appliance being inspected in operation. Adjust thermostat so appliance shall operate continuously;

e.Test for draft hood equipped appliance spillage at the draft hood relief opening after 5 minutes of main burner operation. Use the flame of a match or candle;

f.After it has been determined that each appliance connected to the venting system properly vents when tested as outlined above, return doors, windows, exhaust fans, fireplace dampers and any other gas burning appliance to their previous conditions of use;

g.If improper venting is observed during any of the above tests, the common venting system must be corrected.

Corrections must be in accordance with the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code NFPA54/ANSI Z223.1 and/or CAN/ CSA B149 Installation Codes.

If resizing is required on any portion of the venting system, use the appropriate table in Appendix G in the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 and/or CAN/CSA B149 Installation Codes.

THERMOSTATLOCATION

In an area having good air circulation, locate the thermostat about five feet high on a vibration-freeinside wall. Do not install the thermostat where it may be influenced by any of the following:

Drafts, or dead spots behind doors, in corners, or under cabinets.

Hot or cold air from registers.

Radiant heat from the sun.

Light fixtures or other appliances.

Radiant heat from a fireplace.

Concealed hot or cold water pipes, or chimneys.

Unconditioned areas behind the thermostat, such as an outside wall.

Consult the instructions packaged with the thermostat for mounting instructions and further precautions.

COMBUSTION ANDVENTILATIONAIRREQUIREMENTS

WARNING

TO AVOID PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH,

SUFFICIENT FRESH AIR FOR PROPER COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION OF FLUE GASES MUST BE SUPPLIED. MOST HOMES REQUIRE OUTSIDE AIR BE SUPPLIED INTO THE FURNACE AREA.

Improved construction and additional insulation in buildings have reduced heat loss by reducing air infiltration and escape around doors and windows. These changes have helped in reducing heating/cooling costs but have created a problem supplying combustion and ventilation air for gas fired and other fuel burning appliances. Appliances that pull air out of the house (clothes dryers, exhaust fans, fireplaces, etc.) increase the problem by starving appliances for air.

House depressurization can cause back drafting or improper combustion of gas-firedappliances, thereby exposing building occupants to gas combustion products that could include carbon monoxide.

If this furnace is to be installed in the same space with other gas appliances, such as a water heater, ensure there is an adequate supply of combustion and ventilation air for the other appliances. Refer to the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas
