AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
WARNING: This heater shall
not be installed in a room or
space unless the required volume of indoor combustion air
is provided by the method described in the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the
International Fuel Gas Code, or
applicable local codes. 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 cold air out and 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, 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, 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
Information on page 7 through 9 will help you
classify your space and provide adequate
ventilation.
126709-01A
Unusually Tight Construction
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 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. weather stripping has been added on
openable windows and doors 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
for plumbing, electrical and gas lines
and at other openings.
If your home meets all three criteria above,
you must provide additional fresh air. See
Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 9.
If your home does not meet all three criteria
above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air
Flow for Firebox Location, page 8.
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: 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)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
Vent-free heater
________ 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:
40,000 Btu/Hr
Gas water heater __________
39,000 Btu/Hr
Vent-free heater +_________
79,000 Btu/Hr
Total
=_________
8
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: 63,360 Btu/Hr (maximum
the space can support)
79,000 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 Ventilation Air
From Inside Building, page 9.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See
Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 9.
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 does
not meet the required volume for
indoor combustion air, combustion and ventilation air shall be
provided by one of the methods
described in the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54,
the International Fuel Gas Code,
or applicable local codes.

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 4). You can also remove door into
adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 3). Follow
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/

INSTALLATION
Continued
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 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 rear, sides, top or bottom of firebox,
except where standoff spacers are integrally
attached. If standoff spacers are attached to
firebox, these spacers can be placed directly
against wall or framing materials.
Use dimensions shown for rough openings
to create the easiest installation (see Built-In
Firebox Installation, page 11).
INSTALLATION CLEARANCES
WARNING: Maintain the
minimum clearances. If you can,
provide greater clearances from
floor, ceiling and adjoining wall.
Carefully follow these instructions. This will
ensure safe installation.
Minimum Wall and Ceiling Clearances (see
Figure 5)
A. Clearances from side of fireplace cabinet
to any combustible material and wall
should follow diagram in Figure 5.
Example: The face of a mantel, bookshelf,
