OWNER’S MANUAL
VENTING INSTALLATION
WARNING: Read all instruc­tions completely and thoroughly before attempting installation. Failure to do so could result in serious injury, property damage or loss of life. Operation of im­properly installed and maintained venting system could result in serious injury, property damage or loss of life.
WARNING: Seal all vent con­nections. Seal only the outer pipe connections with high temperature silicone (600°F/316° C). Before join­ing elbows and pipes, apply a bead of high temperature silicone seal­ant (GE RTV 106/Loctite RTV 81585) to the male end of the elbow or pipe. High temperature silicone must also be used to re-seal any connections after maintenance to venting system.
NOTICE: Failure to follow these instructions will void the warranty.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
Consult local building codes before beginning the installation. The installer must make sure to select the proper vent system for installa­tion. Before installing vent kit, the installer must read this fireplace manual and vent kit instructions.
Only a qualified service person should in­stall venting system. The installer must fol­low these safety rules:
• Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection
• Use extreme caution when using ladders or when on roof tops
• Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and ceilings
The following actions will void the war­ranty on your venting system:
• Installation of any damaged venting component
• Unauthorized modification of the vent­ing system
• Installation of any component part not manufactured or approved by DESA International
• Installation other than as instructed by these instructions
WARNING: This gas fireplace and vent assembly must be vented directly to the outside. The venting system must NEVER be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel burning ap­pliance. Each gas appliance must use a separate vent system. Do not use common vent systems.
WARNING: Horizontal sec­tions of this vent system require a minimum clearance of 2" from the top of the pipe and 1" mini­mum to the sides and bottom. Vertical sections of this system require a minimum of 1" clear­ance to combustible materials on all sides of the pipe.
INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal T ermination
• Vertical Termination It is important to select the proper length of
vent pipe for the type of termination you choose. It is also important to note the wall thickness.
For Horizontal Termination: Select the
amount of vertical rise desired. The horizon­tal run of venting must have 1/4" rise for every 12" of run towards the termination.
WARNING: Never run the vent downward as this may cause ex­cessive temperatures which could cause a fire.
You may use one or two 90° elbows in this vent configuration. See Horizontal Termina- tion Configurations on pages 10 and 11.
For Vertical Termination: Measure the dis-
tance from the fireplace flue outlet to the ceiling. Add the ceiling thickness, the verti­cal rise in an attic or second story, and allow for sufficient vent height above the roofline.
You may use one or two 90° elbows in this vent configuration. See Vertical Termination Configurations on pages 13 through 15.
Note:
You may use two 45° elbows in place of a 90° elbow. You must follow rise to run ratios when using 45° elbows.
For two-story applications, firestops are re­quired at each floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic, additional pipe and el­bows will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination with exposed pipe on the exterior of the house. See Installing Vent System in a Chase, below.
Your Vanguard direct-vent fireplace has been tested for a minimum 3' rise with a maximum 10" wall thickness. The maxi­mum horizontal run is 20' with 8' vertical rise (see Installation for Horizontal Termi- nation, page 8). The maximum vertical run is 30' (see Installation for Vertical Termina- tion, page 12).
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combus­tion air intake and the flue gas exhaust. Certain limitations apply to vent configura­tions and must be strictly followed.
Installing Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose venting that runs along the out­side of a building. A chase is not required for such venting.
NOTICE: Treatment of firestops and construction of the chase may vary from building type to build­ing type. These instructions are not substitutes for the require­ments of local building codes. You must follow all local building codes.
Note:
When installing in a chase, you should insulate the chase as you would the outside walls of your home. This is especially im­portant in cold climates. Minimum clear­ance between vent pipes and combustible materials such as insulation is 1".
After framing the chase (see Framing and Finishing on page 4) install the vent system by following the installation instructions.

INSTALLATION FOR HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
1. Determine the route your horizontal venting will take. of the horizontal vent termination on the exterior wall must meet all local and national building codes and must not be easily blocked or obstructed.
WARNING: Do not recess vent
terminal into a wall or siding.
Snorkel terminations are available for terminations requiring a vertical rise on the exterior of the building (see Figures 10 and 11). Snorkel kit SVK is also available (see page 15). Follow the same installation procedures used for standard horizontal terminations. If installing the snorkel termination below grade (base­ment applications), you must provide proper drainage to prevent water from entering the snorkel termination (see Figure 11). Do not back fill around the snorkel termination.
2. Rigid vent pipes and fittings have spe­cial twist-lock connections. Assemble the desired combination of pipe and el­bows to the appliance adaptor with pipe seams oriented towards the wall or floor.
Twist-lock Procedure: The female ends of the pipes and fittings have four indentations (locking lugs). These lugs will slide straight into matching slots on the male ends of adjacent pipes and fit­tings. (All connections must be sealed with high temperature silicone sealant as specified in the second warning state­ment on page 7.) Push the pipe sections together and twist one section clockwise approximately one-quarter turn until the sections are fully locked. See Figure 12, page 9. must be supported every three feet. Use wall straps for this purpose.
Flexible vent pipe must be installed with spacer springs every 12". See Figure 12, page 9. All connections must be clamped tightly and sealed with high temperature silicone sealant as specified in the sec­ond warning statement on page 7.

3. Attach vent pipe assembly to the fire­place. Set fireplace in front of it’s perma­nent location to insure minimum clear­ances. Mark the wall for a 10" square hole (for noncombustible material such as masonry block or concrete, a 7 1/2" diam­eter hole is acceptable). See Figure 13. The center of the hole should line up with the center-line of the horizontal rigid vent pipe. Cut a 10"x10" (254mm x 254mm) square hole through combustible exterior wall (7 1/2" [190mm] diameter hole if noncombustible). Frame as necessary (see Figure 13).

4. Apply a bead of non-hardening mastic around the outside edge of the vent cap. Position the vent cap in the center of the 7 1/2" or 10" hole on the exterior wall with the arrow on the vent cap pointing up. Insure proper clearance of 1" to combustibles is maintained. At­tach the vent cap with four wood screws supplied (see Figure 14).
Note
: Re­place the wood screws with appropri­ate fasteners for stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of siding.
WARNING: Do not recess vent termination in to any wall. This will cause a fire hazard.
For vinyl siding use vinyl siding stand­offs between vent cap and exterior wall. The vinyl siding standoff prevents ex­cessive heat from melting the vinyl sid­ing material. Bolt the vent cap to the standoff. Apply non-hardening mastic around outside edge of the standoff in­stead of the vent cap assembly. Use wood screws provided to attach the standoff. See Figure 15.
5. Slide the wall thimble over the vent pipe before connecting the horizontal run to the vent cap (see Figure 16).
Apply Mastic to All Four Sides
6. Carefully move the fireplace with vent assembly attached toward the wall and insert the vent pipe into the horizontal termination. The pipe overlap should be a minimum of 1 1/4". Apply silicone to the outer pipe connection. Fasten all vent connections with screws provided. Refer to Fir eplace Installation on page 16 for instructions on securing unit to framing or floor.
7. Slide the wall thimble against the inte­rior wall surface and attach with screws provided (see Figure 16).

INSTALLATION FOR VERTICAL TERMINATION
NOTICE: Use rigid pipe only. Flex venting is not to be used with a vertical termination.
1. Determine the route your vertical vent­ing will take. If ceiling joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct the venting system, consider an offset (see Figure 22) to avoid cutting loadbearing members. cial attention to these installation in­structions for required clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclo­sures, attic rafters, etc. Do not pack air spaces with insulation. Also note maxi­mum vertical rise of the venting sys­tem and any maximum horizontal off­set limitations. Offsets must fall within the parameters shown in Figure 9 on page 6.
2. Set the fireplace in desired location. Drop a plumb line down from the ceil­ing to the position of the fireplace exit flue. Mark the center point where the vent will penetrate the ceiling. Drill a small locating hole at this point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the locating hole in the ceil­ing. Mark the center point where the vent will penetrate the roof. Drill a small locating hole at this point.
Note:

Flat Ceiling Installation
1. Cut a 10" square hole in the ceiling us­ing the locating hole as a center point. The opening should be framed to 10"x10" (254mm x 254mm) inside di­mensions, as shown in Figure 13 on page 9 using framing lumber the same size as the ceiling joists. If the area above the ceiling is an insulated ceil­ing or a room, nail firestop from the top side. This prevents loose insulation from falling into the required clearance space. Otherwise, install firestop below the framed hole. The firestop should be installed with no less than three nails per side (see Figure 23).
2. Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the fireplace flue up through the firestop. All connections must be sealed with high temperature silicone sealant as specified in the second warning state­ment on page 7. Be sure all pipe and elbow connections are fully twist­locked (see Figure 12, page 9).
3. Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center point. (Cover any ex­posed open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof.) The 10"x10" hole must be measured on the horizontal; actual length may be larger depending on the pitch of the roof. There must be a 1" clearance from the vent pipe to combus­tible materials. Frame the opening as shown in Figure 13 on page 9.
If area above is a room, install firestop above framed hole.
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the hole.
Note:
If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, you must support the vent pipe every 3 feet. Use wall straps for this purpose (see Figure 22). Whenever possible, use 45° elbows instead of 90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less re­striction to the flow of the flue gases and intake air.
5. Place the flashing over the pipe section(s) extending through the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to the roof and framing with roofing nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps the top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure
22. There must be a 1" clearance from the vent pipe to combustible materials.
6. Continue to add pipe sections until the height of the vent cap meets the mini­mum building code requirements de­scribed in Figure 9 on page 6. must increase vent height for steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining rooflines, steep pitched roofs, and other similar fac­tors may cause poor draft or down-draft­ing in high winds. Increasing the vent height may solve this problem.
7. Twist-lock the vent cap onto the last section of vent pipe and seal outer pipe connection with high temperature sili­cone sealant as specified in the second warning statement on page 7.
Note:
If the vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above the first floor, including storage spaces and closets, you must enclose pipe. You may frame and sheetrock the enclo­sure with standard construction material. Make sure and meet the minimum allowable clear­ances to combustibles. Do not fill any of the required air spaces with insulation.

Cathedral Ceiling Installation
1. Remove shingles or other roof cover-
ing as necessary to cut the rectangular hole for the support box. Mark the out­line of the cathedral ceiling support box on the roof sheathing using the locat­ing hole as a center point.
2. Cut the hole 1/8" larger than the sup-
port box outline (see Figure 24, page 13).

3. Lower the support box through the hole in the roof until the bottom of the box extends at least 2" below the ceiling (see Figure 24). Align the support box vertically and horizontally using a level. Temporarily tack the support box in place through the inside walls and into the roof sheathing.
4. Using tin snips, cut the support box from the top corners down to the roofline and fold the resulting flaps over the roof sheathing (see Figure 25). Apply a bead of non-hardening mastic around the top edges of the support box to make a seal between the box and the roof. Nail in place with roofing nails. Remove any combustible material that might be in­side of the support box.
5. Complete the cathedral ceiling instal­lation by following the same proce­dures outlined in steps 2 through 7 for Flat Ceiling Installation, page 12
