Providing Adequate Ventilation Determining Fresh-Air Flow for Fireplace Location
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
WARNING: This fireplace shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction unless provisions are provided for adequate com­bustion and ventilation air. Read the following in­structions to insure proper fresh air for this and other fuel-burning appliances in your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New mate­rials, increased insulation, and new construction methods help reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners weather strip and caulk around windows and doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air in. During heating months, home owners want their homes as airtight as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh air must enter your home. All fuel-burning appliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers, and fuel burning appliances draw air from the house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh air for these appliances. This will insure proper venting of vented fuel-burning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation.
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three following ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space The information on pages 6 through 8 will help you classify your
space and provide adequate ventilation.
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough fresh air for combustion and ventilation. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction, you must provide additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
a. walls and ceilings e xposed to the outside atmosphere
have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of one perm (6 x 10 openings gasketed or sealed
b. weather stripping has been added on openable win-
dows and doors
-11
kg per pa-sec-m2) or less with
and
and
c. caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as
joints around window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations f or plumbing, electrical, and gas lines, and at other openings.
If your home meets all of these three criteria, you must provide ad ditional fresh air. See
From Outdoors
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to
Location,
Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Fireplace
below.

Ventilation Air
Confined and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space and an unconfined space as a space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space. Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed*, through openings not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are doorless passageways or ventilation grills between them.
DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR FIREPLACE LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space. Space: Includes the room in which you will install fireplace plus any adjoining
rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height). Length x Width x Height =___________ cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example:
height) = 1792 cu. ft. (volume of space) If additional ventilation to adjoining room is supplied with grills or open-
ings, add the volume of these rooms to the total volume of the space.
2. Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
__________ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space
Example:
Btu/Hr the space can support)
Space size 16 ft. (length) x 14 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling
can support)
1792 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20 = 35,840 (maximum

3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space. Vent-free fireplace _____________ Btu/Hr Gas water heater* _____________ Btu/Hr Gas furnace _____________ Btu/Hr Vented gas heater _____________ Btu/Hr Gas fireplace logs _____________ Btu/Hr Other gas appliances* + _____________ Btu/Hr Total = _____________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws com­bustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
Example:
Gas water heater _____________ Btu/Hr Vent-free fireplace + _____________ Btu/Hr Total = _____________ Btu/Hr
30,000 10,000 40,000
4. Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual
amount of Btu/Hr used.
__________________ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support) __________________ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Example:
35,840 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support) 40,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
The space in the above example is a confined space because the actual Btu/ Hr used is more than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support. You must provide additional fresh air. Your options are as follows:
A. Rework worksheet, adding the space of an adjoining room. If the
extra space provides an unconfined space, remove door to adjoining room or add ventilation grills between rooms. See V entilation Air Fr om Inside Building.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air From Out-
doors, page 8.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr fireplace, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room
unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is an unconfined space. You will need no additional fresh air ventilation.
VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation Air From Inside Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining unconfined space. When ventilating to an adjoining unconfined space, you must provide two permanent openings: one within 12" of the ceiling and one within 12" of the floor on the wall connecting the two spaces (see options 1 and 2, Figure 5). You can also remove door into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 5). Follow the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation for required size of ventilation grills or ducts.
