Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the
flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you have
these signs, the heater may not be working properly.
Get fresh air at once! Have heater serviced. Some
people are more affected by carbon monoxide than
others. These include pregnant women, persons with
heart or lung disease or anemia, those under the
influence of alcohol, and those at high altitudes.
PRECAUTIONS:
1. BF-10 NG and IR-10NG may be installed in a
bedroom, but not a bathroom, or any place where a
strong wind would shut down the appliance.

SAFETY DEVICE
ESTABLISHING ADEQUATE VENTILATION
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor
(ODS) safety shut off system. The ODS/pilot shuts off
the heater if there is not enough fresh air.
The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas
Code, NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1, 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
This heater must not be installed in a confined space or
unusually tight construction unless provisions are
provided for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
The information on pages 3 through 5 will help you
classify your space and provide adequate ventilation.
IGNITION SYSTEM
PIEZO: BF10NG / IR10NG – The heater is equipped
with a piezo manual ignitor. This system requires no
matches, batteries, or other source to light heater.
Electronic: BF20NGT/BF30NGT/IR20NGT/IR30NGT –
The heater is equipped with an electronic manual
ignitor. This system requires no matches, or other
source to light heater, but does require one AA battery to
operate ignitor.(AA Battery included).
To install or replace battery unscrew the
ignitor cap (red button), insert battery and
replace cap.
Unusually Tight Construction
If your home meets all of the three following criteria you
must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
from Outdoors, page 5.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction
where:
a. Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a
rating of one perm (6 x 10-11 kg per pa-sec-m2) or less
with openings gasketed or sealed and
b. Whether stripping has been added on openable
windows and doors, and
c. Caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as
joints around windows and door frames, between
wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and gas lines, and at
other openings.
If you home does not meet all of the three criteria
above, see Determing the Type of Heater Location
Space, page 4.
(AA Battery included)
THERMOSTATIC CONTROL ON
THERMOSTAT MODELS
(BF20NGT, BF30NGT, IR20NGT and IR30NGT)
These heaters have a control valve with a thermostat
sensing bulb. This results in the greatest heater comfort
and may result in lower bills.
These heaters also include an electrical blower. The
blower switch has three positions: MANUAL, OFF and
AUTO. In AUTO, the blower will turn on and off as the
heater cycles on and off. Un MANUAL, the blower will
run continuously. To turn blower off, use the OFF position.
LOCAL CODES
Install and use heater with care.
Installation must conform to local codes or in the absences of local codes, use the latest edition of National
Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
Confined Space and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1
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
3
Installation instructions and Owner’s Manual
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 communication only if there are
doorless passageways or ventilation grills between
them.
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, and the space of an adjoining
room. If the extra space provides an unconfined
space, remove door to adjoining room or add ventilation grills between the rooms. See Ventilation Air
From Inside Building (Fig. 2).
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air
From Outdoors (Fig. 3).
C. Install a lower Btu/hr heater if lower Btu/hr size makes
room unconfined.
If 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.
DETERMINING THE TYPE OF HEATER
LOCATION SPACE:
Use this method to determine if you have a confined or
unconfined space.
Note: the space includes the room in which you
install heater plus any adjoining rooms with doorless
passageways or ventilation grills between the
rooms.
1. Find the volume of the space by multiplying room
length x width x height.
Example: Space size 18ft (length) x 18ft. (width) x 8ft.
(height) = 2592
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. Divide the space volume by 50 cubic feet to determine the maximum Btu/hr the space can support.
Example: 2592 cu.ft. (volume of space) / 50 cu.ft. = 51.8
or 51,800 (maximum Btu/hr the space can
support)
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be
operated is smaller than defined as an unconfined
space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and ventilation air
by the methods described in the National Fuel Gas
Code, NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3 or
applicable local codes.
3. Add the Btu/hr of all the fuel-burning appliances in the
space such as, Vent–free heater, Gas water heater,
Gas furnace, Vented gas heater, Gas fireplace logs,
and Other gas appliances*
*Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Directvent draws combustion air from the outdoors and
vents to the outdoors.
Example:
Gas water heater 40,000 Btu/hr
Vent Free Heater + 20,000 Btu/hr
Total
=60,000 Btu/hr
4. Compare the maximum Btu/hr the space can support
with the actual amount of Btu/hr used.
Example: 51,800 Btu/hr (maximum Btu/hr the
space can support)
60,000 Btu/hr (Actual amount of Btu/hr
VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation from Inside Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining unconfined
space. When ventilation 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 & 2 of
fig. 2). You can also remove door into adjoining room
(see option3, fig 2). Follow the National Fuel Gas Code
NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion
and Ventilation for required size of ventilation grills or
ducts.

LOCATING HEATER
This heater is designed to be mounted on the wall. The
heater can also be located on a non-combustible floor,
away from a wall by using the floor mounting stands
included with the heater. If installed on combustible
flooring such as carpeting, tile or other combustible
material other than wood flooring, the heater must be
placed on a wood panel the full width and depth of the
appliance.
For convenience and efficiency, install the heater:
Ventilation from Outdoors
If necessary provide extra fresh air by using ventilation
grills or ducts. Connect these items directly to the
outdoors or spaces open to the outdoors. These
include attics* and crawl spaces. Follow the National
Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3, Air
for Combustion and Ventilation for required size of
ventilation grills or ducts.
*IMPORTANT: Do not provide openings for inlet or
outlet into attic. If attic has a thermostat-controlled
power vent, heated air entering the attic will activate
the power vent.
IMPORTANT: Vent-free heaters add moisture to the
air. Although this is beneficial, installing heater in
rooms without enough ventilation air may cause
mildew to form from too much moisture. See Fresh
Air for Combustion and Ventilation, pages 3 through
5.

Installation instructions and Owner’s Manual
WARNING: This appliance requires a 3/8” NPT
(National Pipe Thread) inlet connection to the
pressure regulator. Use of floor mounting feet will
require you to use a 3/8 NPT street elbow to make
gas connection.
CAUTION: Never connect heater to private (non-utility)
gas well. This gas is commonly known as well-head
gas.
IMPORTANT: Check your gas line pressure before
connecting heater to gas line. Gas line pressure must
be no greater than 14 inches of water. If gas line pressure is higher, heater regulator damage could occur.
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 larger
enough diameter to allow proper gas volume to heater. If
pipe is too small, undue loss of pressure will occur.
This keeps them from going into heater. If sediment trap
is not installed or is installed improperly, heater may not
run correctly.
IMPORTANT: Hold pressure regulator with wrench
when connecting it to gas piping and/or fittings.
CHECKING GAS CONNECTIONS
WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections for
leaks after installing or servicing. Correct all leaks
at once.
WARNING: Never use an open flame to check for a
gas leak. Apply a mixture of liquid soap and water to
all joints. Bubbles forming show a leak. Correct all
leaks at once.
PRESSURE TESTING GAS SUPPLY PIPING
SYSTEM
Test pressure in Excess of ½ psig (3.5kPa)

union and plugged 1/8” NPT tap. Locate NPT tap within
reach of test gauge hookup. NPT tap must be upstream
from heater (see figure 12).
1. Disconnect appliance with its appliance main
gas valve (control valve) and equipment shutoff
valve from gas supply piping system. Pressures in excess of ½ psig will damage heater
regulator.
2. Cap off open end of gas pipe where equipment
shutoff valve was connected.
3. Pressurize supply piping system by either using
compressed air or opening main gas valve on
or near gas meter.
4. Check all connections and joints in gas supply
piping system. Apply mixture of liquid soap and
water to gas joints. Bubbles forming show a
leak.
5. Correct all leaks at once.

THERMOSTAT CONTROL OPERATION
FOR IR20NGT / IR30NGT: The thermostatic control used
simply turns on and off the burner.
FOR BF20NGT / BF30NGT: The thermostatic control
used modulates the flame size as the temperature gets
closer to set point, then it turns off the burner upon
reaching temperature.
The burner will cycle back on when room temperature
drops below the set temperature. The control knob can
be set to any heat level between 1 and 5. Selecting the
HI setting will cause the burner to remain on.
Note: The thermostat sensing bulb measures the
temperature of air near the heater cabinet. This
may not always agree with room temperature
(depending on housing construction, insulation
location, room size, open air temperature, etc.).
Frequent use of your heater will let you determine
your own comfort levels.
The LED temperature indicator measures approximate
room temperature around the heater.
Note: The LED temperature indicator DOES NOT
operate with or control the thermostat setting of the
heater.

CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burner
and circulation air passageways of heater clean.
Inspect these areas of heater before use. Have the
heater inspected yearly by a qualified service
person. Heater may need more frequent cleaning
due to excess lent from carpeting, bedding material,
pet hair, etc.
Make sure grille guard is in place before running
heater. If screen or grille guard is removed for
servicing it must be replaced prior to operating the
heater.
WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air
opening(s) of the burner(s) clean may result in
sooting and property damage.

CLEANING HEATER CABINET
Air passageways
•
Use a vacuum cleaner or pressurized air to clean
Exterior
•
Use a soft cloth dampened with a mild soap and
water mixture. Wipe the cabinet to remove dust.
CLEANING ODS/PILOT AND BURNER
•
Use as vacuum cleaner, pressurized air or
small soft bristled brush to clean.
CLEANING BURNER PILOT AIR HOLE INLET
We recommend that you clean the unit ever 2,500 hours
of operation or every three months. We also recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot assembly
clean and free of dust and dirt. To clean these parts we
recommend using compressed air no greater than 30
psig.
This can be done by using a vacuum cleaner in the blow
position, using compressed air in a can, please follow
the directions on the can. If you don’t follow directions
on the can you could damage the burner or pilot assembly. In addition, the directions that follow should also be
followed.
1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the
unit to cool for at least thirty minutes.
2. Inspect burner and pilot for dust and dirt.
3. Blow air through the port/slots and holes in the
burner.
A yellow tip on the pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in
the pilot assembly. To clean the pilot assembly find the
small pilot air inlet hole about two inches from where the
pilot flame comes out of the pilot assembly (see figure
25). With the unit off, lightly blow air through the air inlet
hole. You may blow through a drinking straw if compressed air is not available.

Model ______________________
Serial No. ___________________
Date Purchased _______________
Always specify model and serial numbers when communication with the factory.
We reserve the right to amend these specifications at any time without notice. The only warranty applicable
is our standard written warranty. We make no other warranty, expressed or implied.
Enerco Group, Inc. warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and components for two (2)
years from the date of first purchase, provided that the product has been properly installed, operated and
maintained in accordance with all applicable instructions. To make a claim under this warranty the Bill of
Sale or cancelled check must be presented.
The warranty is extended only to the original retail purchaser. This warranty covers the cost of part(s)
required to restore the heater to proper operating condition and an allowance for labor when provided by
an Enerco Group, Inc. Authorized Service Center. Warranty part(s) MUST be obtained through authorized
dealers of this product and/or Enerco Group, Inc. who will provide original factory replacement parts.
Failure to use original factory parts voids this warranty. The heater MUST be installed by a qualified installer in accordance with all local codes and instructions furnished with the unit.
This warranty does not apply to parts that are not in original condition because of normal wear and tear of
parts that fail or become damaged as a result of misuse, accidents, lack of proper maintenance or defects
caused by improper installation. Travel, diagnostic cost, labor, transportation and any and all such costs
related to repairing a defective heater will be the responsibility of the owner.
TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LAW OF THE JURISDICTION THAT GOVERNS THE SALE
OF THE PRODUCT; THIS EXPRESS WARRANTY EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL OTHER EXPRESSED
WARRANTIES AND LIMITS THE DURATION OF ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TO TWO (2) YEARS OF ALL COMPONENTS FROM THE FIRST DATE OF PURCHASE; AND ENERCO GROUP, INC.’S LIABILITY IS HEREBY
LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT AND ENERCO GROUP, INC. SHALL NOT BE
LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow a limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or an exclusion or limitation on
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation on implied warranties, or limitation on damages, may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that very from state to
state. Always specify model and serial number when communication with the factory.
