Radiance Direct Vent Gas Heater
Installation & Operating Instructions
The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater, Model Nos. RADVTCB,
RADVTEB, RADVTBS, RADVTBD, RADVTBM, RADVTCSCB,
RADVTCSEB, RADVTCSBS, RADVTCSBD, RADVTCSBM, is
a vented gas appliance listed to the ANSI Standard Z21.88-2009
and CSA 2.33-2009 for Vented Room Heaters, and CSA 2.17M91, Gas-Fired Appliances For Use at High Altitudes.
The installation of the Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater must
conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 — latest edition and CSA B-149.1 Installation Code. (EXCEPTION: Do not
derate this appliance for altitude. Maintain the manifold pressure
at 3.5 inches w.c. for Natural Gas and 10 inches w.c. for LP gas
at maximum input.)
This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated on
the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible for use with
other gases unless a certified kit is used.
Installation and replacement of gas piping, gas utilization
equipment or accessories, and repair and servicing of equipment shall be performed only by a qualified agency, preferably
NFI or WETT (Canada) certified. The term “qualified agency”
means any individual, firm, corporation, or company that
either in person or through a representative is engaged in
and is responsible for (a) installation or replacement of gas
piping, or (b), the connection, installation, repair, or servicing of equipment, who is experienced in such work, familiar
with all precautions required, and has complied with all the
requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.
The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater should be inspected
before use and at least annually by a qualified service
agency. It is imperative that control compartments, burners, and circulating air passageways of the appliance be
kept clean.
The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater and its individual shut-off
valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping during
any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater must be isolated from
the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual
shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig.
An accessible tap is located above the pilot/On-Off knob for
checking the inlet pressure.
‘Direct Vent’ describes a sealed combustion system in which
incoming outside air for combustion and outgoing exhaust enter and exit through two separate concentric passages within
the same sealed vent system. The system does not use room
air to support combustion. The Direct Vent system permits the
gas appliance to be vented directly to the outside atmosphere
through the side of the house or vertically through the roof.
Conventional venting systems (Natural Vent) take air from the
room for combustion and vent the exhaust vertically through the
roof to the atmosphere.
This appliance is approved for bedroom installations in the U.S.
and Canada.

Vent Termination Clearances
When planning the installation, consider the location
of the vent terminal and clearances. Some of the most
common clearances to keep in mind are shown in Figure
11.
Important: All vent clearances must be maintained.
Check your vent termination clearances against
Figures 11 through 13.
The vent should be placed so that people cannot be
burned by accidentally touching the vent surfaces when
the stove is operating.
The vent termination should be located where it cannot
be damaged by such things as automobile doors, lawn
mowers or snowblowers and it should be located away
from areas where it could become blocked by snow,
etc.
Some considerations are:
• Obstructions or impediments to venting.
• Nearby combustible materials that could come into
contact with combustion exhaust gases.
• Other nearby openings {within 12” (305 mm)}
through which exhaust gas could reenter the building.
• All vegetation within 3’ (76 mm) that may interfere
with the draft.
Other factors that influence where the installation will
be sited include the location of outside walls, where
additional heat may be desired in the home, where the
family members gather most regularly, and perhaps
most importantly, the distance limitations of the venting
system.
Your stove is approved to be vented either through the
side wall, or vertical through the roof.
• MHSC does not require any opening for inspection of vent pipe.
• Only MHSC, Simpson DuraVent and Selkirk
Corporation venting components specifically approved and labelled for this stove may be used.
• Minimum clearances between vent pipes and
combustible materials is one (1”) inch (25 mm),
except where stated otherwise.
• Venting terminals shall not be recessed into a wall or
siding.
• Horizontal venting must be installed on a level plane
without an inclining or declining slope.
There must not be any obstruction such as bushes,
garden sheds, fences, decks or utility buildings within
24” from the front of the termination hood.
Do not locate termination hood where excessive snow
or ice build up may occur. Be sure to check vent termination area after snow falls, and clear to prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When using snow
blowers, make sure snow is not directed towards vent
termination area.
Location of Vent Termination
It is imperative the vent termination be located observing the minimum clearances as shown on this page.
IMPORTANT
• The horizontal termination must not be recessed
into the exterior wall or siding.
• Horizontal vent runs must be level toward the
vent termination.
• Clearances around the vent termination must be
maintained.
• For installations using Simpson DuraVent pipe,
parallel installations with minimum wall clearance
have restricted access for connecting the Horizontal Vent Cap straps to the vent pipe. See the
maker’s instructions for recommended installation procedures.

Use of Sealant
It is not required to apply or use sealant on the inner
liner of DIRECT-TEMP. For outer wall joint sealing
considerations, follow appliance manufacturer recommendations.
Joint Connection:
The pipe and elbows are assembled by inserting the
outlet (male) end of a length of pipe or elbow into the inlet (female) end of an adjacent length of pipe or elbow.
Make sure the outlet end is fully seated within the inlet
end of the adjoining section and the gasket, located on
the inner liner of the inlet section is fully enclosed by the
inner liner of the outlet of the adjoining section. Push
in the Lock Tab such that it becomes seated within the
inward groove of the adjoining section. This locks the
joint in place. (Fig. 34)
Supporting DIRECT-TEMP: Vertical Support
Vertical installations can be supported by two methods:
Ceiling Support (CS) (used in flat ceiling installation)
comes with a support plate and a support collar. Install

Supporting DIRECT-TEMP: Horizontal Support
Horizontal runs of Direct-Temp should be supported
every 4’ (122 cm) of pipe. This can be done with the use
of plumbers strapping or the offset support.
Adjustable Length (AJ)
An Adjustable Length is available to accommodate
installations where non-standard lengths are necessary.
The adjustable length telescopes down over a standard
length of pipe and provides an extension range of 3Z\x”
(89 mm) to 10Z\x” (267 mm). Install by sliding the inlet
end of the adjustable length over the outlet end of a
standard length of pipe. After positioning the adjustable
length appropriately, secure it to the standard length
with two (2) #8 x 1/4” sheet metal screws (provided).
Seal the area between both the top and bottom of the
adjustable length outer wall and the outer wall of the
standard length with an approved silicone sealant.

and screw them to the ceiling. Both the ceiling support
and cathedral ceiling support can support a maximum
of 40’ (12 m) of pipe.
Offsets:
If any offsets are necessary in the vertical system, an
Offset Support (OS) should be installed directly above
the upper elbow of the offset. Install by attaching the
offset support band to the pipe with two #8 x 1/4” sheet
metal screws (minimum ) and secure the offset support
straps to surrounding structure. (Fig. 38)

DIRECT-TEMP must be firestopped wherever it passes
through floors, ceiling or walls. The only location where
a firestop is not required is at the roof level. Both vertical support components with trim plates provide for
firestopping. The wall thimble also acts as a firestop.
AT other locations, a firestop spacer (FS) should be
installed. In the attic the firestop should be placed on
top of the joist framing to prevent debris from falling into
the joist framing. (Fig. 39)

2. Assemble the pipe (and elbow if using) and attach it
to the appliance. Plan for a level to 1/4” per foot rise (6
mm per 305 mm) (from inlet to outlet) in the horizontal
34
system if not specified by the appliance manufacturer.
Horizontal runs should be3LKRKSNORKEL
supported every 4’ (122 cm).
3. Push the appliance near the desired location. Determine the centerpoint of the penetration by locating the
centerline of the outlet of the pipe with respect to the wall.
4. Frame an opening to the dimension specified in the
Framing Dimension Table 1. Ensure the centerline of
the pipe lines up with the center of the prepared opening unless otherwise specified by the appliance manufacturer.
NOTE: As a general rule, the wall thimble is optional in
the U.S. However, there may be some manufacturers
that require it. Contact the appliance manufacturer for
information if uncertain. When installed in Canada, a
wall thimble is required on all installations in which
the vent passes through a combustible wall.
5. If required, install the outside half of the wall thimble
(WT) through the opening and screw or nail in place. (Fig.
41) Seal around the perimeter of the thimble face plate on
the exterior wall using an RTV silicone sealant to provide
protection from possible rain infiltration. (Fig. 41)
NOTE: The wall thimble accommodates wall thicknesses of 4Z\x” (114 mm) to 7Z\x” (191 mm). If a larger range
is needed due to a thicker wall, it is permissible to field
fabricate a metal sleeve extension and attach it to the
shields.
6. Install the horizontal termination to the exterior wall
using four (4) all purpose screws through the holes
located at each corner of the termination. Make sure
the arrow (embossed on the front of the termination)
is pointing up. (Fig. 42) If the house has vinyl siding,

If the wall is brick or concrete, and contains no combustible material, a 7” (178 mm) round penetration
hole is adequate. The wall thimble is not required. The
perforated straps of the horizontal termination provide
a method of attachment. These can either be threaded
through the opening or wall thimble (if used) and
screwed to the pipe or removed with a pair of tin snips
if not used. Use proper masonry fasteners to attach the
horizontal termination to the wall.
7. If a wall thimble is used, push the pipe (which is
connected to the appliance) carefully through the wall
thimble until the DIRECT-TEMP pipe becomes fully
engaged with the horizontal termination. If no thimble is
used, place the Trim Plate (TP) on the DIRECT-TEMP
pipe. Carefully push the DIRECT-TEMP pipe through
the wall until fully engaged with the horizontal termination. Secure the trim plate to the wall.
NOTE: If a vertical rise is necessary on the exterior side
of the building, a 14” (356 mm) and 36” (914 mm) Snorkel Termination (ST) is available. Follow the installation
procedures for horizontal terminations. If the snorkel
termination is to be located below grade, a window well
is recommended with adequate and proper drainage
as per local codes. Leave 2” (51 mm) clearance below snorkel to prevent water from entering the snorkel
termination. Do not enclose the snorkel within a wall or
other type of enclosure and do not back fill. Ensure
that grade level slopes away from the building. (Fig. 40)

1. Determine the location of the appliance. Choose
a location which provides adequate clearance from
obstacles such as electrical wiring, conduit, framing
members, plumbing pipe, etc.
2. After positioning the appliance, determine where the
vent pipe will pass through the ceiling. This can be done
by using a plum bob or a small weight attached to a
string. Hold the plum bob from the ceiling moving it until
it lines up with the centerline of the outlet of the appliance. Mark the position on the ceiling.
NOTE: Frame openings to the dimensions specified
in the framing table for the cathedral ceiling support
box (CCS), the ceiling support (SC) and wherever the
firestop spacer (FS) is being used.
3. Cut and frame the appropriate sized square hole
through the ceiling. Repeat the process for other ceiling
penetrations as necessary.
4. Determine and mark the roof penetration in the
same manner.
5. Cut a hole in the roof at this point large enough to
satisfy all clearance-to-combustible requirements as
specified by the appliance manufacturer’s installation
instructions.
6. Install the ceiling support cathedral ceiling support
box assembly, as appropriate.
30004967

7. Determine the distance from the appliance outlet to
a point just above [approximately 12” (305 mm) to 24”
(610 mm)] either
the cathedral ceiling support box or
34
the ceiling support
plate and assemble lengths of pipe
3ELKIRKVERTICALVENTING
to satisfy this distance. Do not attach assembly to appli
ance.
8. Loosely position the support collar around the assembled lengths (flared end down).
9. From above, lower the assembled pipe sections
down through the cathedral ceiling box or ceiling support plate and attach it to the appliance adapter. The
support collar should then be adjusted so that when
the assembled lengths of pipe are attached to the appliance, it rests on the bottom of the cathedral ceiling
support box on top of the ceiling support plate.
10. Tighten the tabs of the collar. Secure the support collar by inserting three (3) #8 x 1/4” sheet metal
screws through the support collar and the outer wall of
the pipe.
NOTE: If the cathedral ceiling support box assembly is
being used, it may be necessary to temporarily connect
25
Radiance Direct Vent Gas Heater
the assembled pipe to the appliance. Determine and
mark the location of where the support collar will be attached to the pipe. Disconnect and remove assembled
pipe. Attach the support collar per Step 10 (where
marked) and reinstall assembly. This is due to limited
space within the cathedral ceiling support box. Install
any required offset supports.
11. Add lengths of pipe and firestop as necessary
until assembly extends to a point above the roof which
complies with local code requirements for minimum termination height and with the appliance manufacturer’s
installation instructions. (Fig. 45)

NOTE: Whenever DIRECT-TEMP penetrates through a
ceiling, a floor or a wall, it must be firestopped.
12. Using a level, make sure the system is perfectly
vertical.
13. Slide the flashing, suitable for the roof pitch, down
over the pipe protruding through the roof. Recheck
orientation and use a silicone sealant around and under
the perimeter of the flashing where it is in contact with
the roof. Secure the flashing with roofing nails. Finish
roofing around the pipe, covering the sides and upper
ares of the flashing base with roofing material. However, be sure the lower unnailed portion of the base
covers the roofing material.
14. Position the storm collar around the pipe and slide
down until it is in contact with the flashing. Secure the
storm collar by inserting the two (2) tabs into the raised
slots and fold tabs back. Seal the area between the
storm collar and the vent pipe with a silicone sealant to
prevent rain infiltration.
15. Install the vertical termination (VC) by inserting it
down into the top most section of pipe until it is fully
seated. Depress lock tab to secure the cap to the pipe.
NOTE: In high wind areas, it is recommended to screw
termination to the pipe with two (2) #8 x 1/4” sheet
metal screws. The screws should be approximately 3/4”
from the bottom of the vertical termination’s galvanized
collar.

Radiance Direct Vent Gas Heater
Maintenance
Your Radiance Gas Heater will provide years of service
with minimal upkeep. The following procedures will help
ensure that your stove continues to function properly.
Annual System Inspection
Have the entire heater and venting system inspected
annually by a qualified gas technician. Replace any
worn or broken parts.
Cleaning the Glass
WARNING: Allow the glass to cool completely before attempting to clean.
7!2.).'
(/4',!337),,
#!53%"52.3
Logset and Burner /
Cleaning and Inspection
Cleanliness is critical to the proper function of the
heater. The logset and burner must all be kept free of
dust and unobstructed by debris. Inspect these areas
before each use and clean as necessary.
1. Turn the burner OFF and let the heater cool completely before cleaning.
2. Lift the Stove Front up and then swing the bottom
out to disengage it from the heater shell. (Fig. 83)
3. Carefully remove the glass and frame assembly
and place it out of the way on a flat, padded surface
such as a counter protected by a towel.
4. Carefully inspect the Logs for damage. Contact your
local dealer if any damage is evident.
5. Use a soft bristled brush to sweep dust or debris
from the Logs, Pilot and Burner. Use care as the
logs are fragile and susceptible to damage.
6. Replace the glass panel and frame assembly.
7. Replace the Stove Front.
Care of Cast Iron
An occasional dusting with a dry rag will help keep the
painted surfaces looking new. Use high-temperature
stove paints, available through your local dealer, to
touch-up areas as needed. Clean areas to be painted
with a wire brush and be sure to cover the logs, burner
and valve assembly, glass and frame assembly. Apply
the paint sparingly; two light coats of paint will give better results than a single heavy coat.
$/./44/5#(',!33

It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During start-up, condensation, which is normal, forms on
the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and other
airborne particles to cling to the glass surface. Also
initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the glass.
It is therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned
two or three times with a non-ammonia household
cleaner and warm water (we recommend gas fireplace
glass cleaner). After that the glass should be cleaned
two or three times during each heating season depending on the circumstances present.
Clean glass after first two weeks of operation.
Glass Replacement
Replace glass only with MHSC approved parts. Refer to
Page 44 for Replacement Parts. Refer to Figure 84 and
previous instructions for removal of the damaged glass
frame.
Clean porcelain enamel surfaces with a soft, damp
cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents. If necessary, use only a cleaning agent formulated especially
for use on porcelain enamel surfaces.
CAUTION
TURN THE PILOT OFF BEFORE PAINTING.
ALLOW THE HEATER TO COOL COMPLETELY
BEFORE PAINTING.

Gasket Replacement
ST141
The Radiance Gas Heater uses
a ‘tadpole’
type gasket
pull glass
latch
10/99 and the frame. In time,
to seal between the glass panel
this gasket can become brittle and compressed and
should be replaced. New gasket is available from your
dealer.
Shut off the gas supply and allow the stove to cool.
Wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
1. Remove the Front, Glass Frame and Glass Panel.
(Figs. 83 & 84) Remove the old gasket. Use a
razor blade to separate the glass and gasket from
the frame, and to clean the glass of any remaining
cement or bits of gasket. Use a cold chisel if necessary.
2. Determine the correct length of gasket by laying it
out around the edge of the glass. Allow an extra 1
- 2” (25-50mm). Mark the spot to be cut. Use a utility
knife.
3. Starting on a long edge, remove about 6” of the
protective paper strip and apply the flat adhesive
face of the gasket around the outside-facing edge
of the panel. Continue around the panel,
Figure 87
applying about 6” at a time and being
careful to not stretch the material. Do not
overlap the gasket ends. (Fig. 85)
4. Apply a thin bead of high temperature
silicone rubber sealant along the inside
corner of the glass
frame, all around the perimeter.
ST179
Place the flat gasketed side of the glass panel back
glass gasket detail
into the steel frame. Pinch the rounded inside-facing
11/99
gasket material
to bulk it up.
5. Replace the glass frame and front panel as previously described.
Inspect the Vent System Annually
Have the vent system inspected annually by a qualified technician. Shut off the main gas supply before
inspecting the system. Both the inner exhaust pipe and
the outer combustion supply pipe must be checked to
confirm that they are unblocked and in good condition.
Check the Gas Flame Regularly
To ensure that the stove is operating properly, check
the flames periodically to confirm they match Figure 86.
The flames will be blue during the first 15-20 minutes of
operation, and will gradually turn to yellow after that.
Do not use your stove if the flame pattern differs from
that shown here. Contact your Vermont Castings dealer
or a qualified technician for help.

Glass is not covered for discoloration or stains due to environmental
issues, or improper cleaning and maintenance.
PLATED PARTS AND ACCESSORIES: Brass, nickel, and gold parts
should be cleaned with Lemon oil only. Commercial cleaners cannot
be used. Mortar mix and masonry cleaners corrode the brass
finish. The MHSC will not be responsible for, nor will it warrant
any brass parts which are damaged by external chemicals or
down draft conditions.
