PRE-INSTALLATION PREPARATION
WARNING: A qualified ser­vice person must install stove and burner system. Follow all lo­cal codes.
CAUTION: This stove creates warm air currents. These currents move heat to wall surfaces next to stove. Installing stove next to vinyl or cloth wall coverings or operating stove where impurities (such as tobacco smoke, aro­matic candles, cleaning fluids, oil or kerosene lamps, etc.) in the air exist, may discolor walls.
LOCATION AND SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Determine the safest and most efficient loca­tion for your Comfort Glow cast iron stove. Make sure that rafters and wall studs are not in the way of the venting system. Choose a location where the heat output is not affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows, or doors. Figure 2 shows some common loca­tions. Read all venting information in this manual. Be aware of all restrictions and pre­cautions before deciding the exact location for your stove.
When deciding the location of your stove, follow these rules:
1. Do not connect this stove and burner system to a chimney flue serving a separate solid-fuel burning fireplace or appliance.
2. Due to high temperatures, do not lo­cate this stove in high traffic areas or near furniture or draperies.
3. Proper clearances must be maintained, see Figure 3 and Figure 4 on page 5.
4. This stove is a freestanding unit de­signed to set directly on the floor. If your stove is to be installed directly on carpeting, vinyl tile, or any combustible material other than wood, it must be installed on a metal or wood panel ex­tending the full width and depth of the stove. See Figure 5, page 5.

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 stove and burner system 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 stove with burner system 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 Termination
• 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
pipe 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 13 and 14.
For Vertical Termination: Measure the dis-
tance from the burner system 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 Ter- mination Configurations on pages 16 and 17.
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 (see Figure 31, page 15).
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 Comfort Glow stove with direct-vent burner system has been tested for a maxi­mum 17" wall thickness when using a 60º elbow directly off the back of the stove. The maximum horizontal run is 20' with 8' ver­tical rise (see Installation for Horizontal Termination, pages 11 and 12). The maxi­mum vertical run is 30' (see Installation for Vertical Termination, pages 14 and 15).
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 boxlike 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".

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 19 and 20). Snorkel kit SVKBK is also available (see page 17). 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 20). 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 locking lugs (indentations). 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 10.) Push the pipe sections together and twist one sec­tion clockwise approximately one-quarter turn until the sections are fully locked. See Figure 21, page 12. of vent must be supported every three feet. Use wall straps for this purpose.
