AIR FOR COMBUSTION
AND VENTILATION
WARNING: This firebox 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.
Todayʼs 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 effi cient, 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, fireboxes, 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 fol lowing ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on page 7 through 9 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 exposed to the out
side atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of one perm (6 x 10 less with openings gasketed or sealed
and
b. weather stripping has been added on
openable windows 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 for plumbing, electrical and gas lines and at other openings.
If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors page 9.
If your home does not meet all of the criteria above, proceed to Determin ing

Fresh-Air Flow for Firebox Location.
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 m 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 m
per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space. Rooms com municating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed*, through openings not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.

1. Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
Length x Width x Height = ________ cu . ft.
(volume of space)
Example: Space size 22 ft. (length) x 18 ft.
(width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room is
supplied with grills or openings, 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 can support)
Example: 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20 =
63,360 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)

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 un confined 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 or applicable local codes.
VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation Air From Inside Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining un confined space. When ventilating to an adjoining unconfined space, you must provide two perma nent 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 4). You can also remove door into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 3). 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.

CAUTION: Log heaters in­stalled in this firebox create warm air currents. These currents move heat to wall surfaces next to fire­box. Installing firebox next to vinyl or cloth wall coverings or operat­ing firebox where impurities (such as, but not limited to, tobacco smoke, aromatic candles, clean­ing fluids, oil or kerosene lamps, etc.) in the air exist, may discolor walls or cause odors.
IMPORTANT: Vent-free gas log heaters add mois­ture to the air. Although this is beneficial, installing firebox in rooms without enough ventilation air may cause mildew to form from too much moisture. See Air for Combustion and Ventilation, page 7.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the firebox is level. If firebox is not level, log set will not work properly.
Note: Your firebox is designed to be used in zero clearance installations. Wall or framing material can be placed against any exterior surface on the rear, sides, top or bottom of your firebox, except where standoff spacers are integrally attached. If standoff spacers are attached to your firebox, these spacers can be placed directly against wall or fram ing materials. Use the dimensions shown for rough opening to create the easiest installation.
Use dimensions shown for rough openings to create the easiest installation (see Built-In Firebox Installation, page 11).

NOTICE: If a log set is installed in the firebox, disconnect log set from gas supply and remove from firebox. Contact a qualified service person to do this.
Note: Appearance of firebox may vary depending on model.
The blower accessory option for use in the vent­free fireboxes is model BK. Model BK is a rotary squirrel cage type blower with magnetic attach ment and variable speed control.
The blower is installed by removing the lower face panel. To remove the lower face panel, pull the left and right latches toward the center of the appliance until they are disengaged from their locator holes (see Figure 12).
Models with louvered front panels can also be removed by inserting fingertips between slots and gently pulling out. DO NOT FORCE. The panels are actually held in place by means of a retention dimple embossed on the edge of remov able panels.
WARNING: If there is a duplex electrical outlet installed in the right side of the bottom of the fireplace base area (see Figure
13), be sure that the electrical power to the outlet is turned off before proceeding with blower installation. Failure to do this may result in serious injury.
1. Attach the power cord to the blower motor by firmly pushing the two female terminals at the end of the power cord onto the two spade ter­minals on the blower motor (see Figure 14).
