The GA3700 Series operates manu­ally and also features a variable speed control. The blower circulates heated air from the fireplace into the room. Use of blower is optional. See Accessories, pages 28 through 30.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
WARNING: This heater 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 4 through 6 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 retar der 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
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 the three criteria above, you must pro vide additional fresh air . See
Air From Outdoors
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to
tion,

column 2.
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 HEATER 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 heater 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) = 2560 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)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws com­bustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
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:
Space size 20 ft. (length) x 16 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling

Determining Fresh-Air Flow for Heater Location (Cont.) Ventilation Air
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
Continued
The space in the example on page 5 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 V entilation Air F r om Outdoors. C. Install a lower Btu/Hr heater, 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.
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be operated is smaller than that defined as an uncon­fined space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and ven­tilation air by one of the methods described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 Sec­tion 5.3

Installation Items Needed
Before installing fireplace, make sure you have the items listed below.
• external regulator for propane/LP unit only (supplied by installer)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve *
• test gauge connection *
• sediment trap (optional)
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
• approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by lo­cal codes) (not provided)
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase the optional CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your dealer. See Accessories, pages 28 through 30.
For propane/LP units, the installer must supply an external regula­tor. The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 14 inches of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, heater regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent point­ing down as shown in Figure 17. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

INSTALLING GAS PIPING TO FIREPLACE LOCATION
WARNING: This appliance requires a 1/2" NPT (National Pipe Thread) inlet connection to the pres­sure regulator.
WARNING: A qualified service person must con­nect fireplace to gas supply. Follow all local codes.
CAUTION: Never connect propane/LP fireplace directly to the propane/LP supply. This fireplace requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator between the fireplace and pro­pane/LP supply.
WARNING: Never connect natural gas fireplace to private (non-utility) gas wells. This gas is commonly known as wellhead gas.
CAUTION: Use only new, black iron or steel pipe. Internally-tinned copper tubing may be used in certain areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2" diam­eter or greater to allow proper gas volume to fireplace. If pipe is too small, undue loss of pressure will occur.
