D. Location
F. Electrical Supply Circuit Requirements
•
For best results, install out of direct sunlight.
•
Power supply service must be installed within
proximity of electric fireplace prior to finishing to
avoid reconstruction.
Plan the location of the appliance so that it will have
adequate electric power. A 15 AMP, 120V/60hz. circuit
is required. Additional appliances on the same circuit as
this heater may exceed the current rating of that circuit.
A dedicated circuit is not required, but is preferred to
prevent circuit breaker trips or fuse failure.
When choosing a location for your fireplace ensure that
the general rules are followed:
E. Clearance to Combustibles
Reference Section 4.E for more complete detail on completing electrical installation.
Minimum Clearance to Combustibles
Sides.......................0 in.
Floor........................0 in.
Top..........................0 in.

A. Selecting Appliance Location
This product can be built into new construction or an existing factory-built fireplace. Reference Sections 4.A - 4.D for
specific information for your installation.
When selecting a location for the appliance it is important to
consider the required clearances to walls (see Figure 4.1).
WARNING! Risk of Fire or Burns! Provide adequate
clearance around air openings and for service access.
Due to high temperatures, the appliance should be located out of traffic and away from furniture and draperies.

B. Installation into Existing Fireplace
1. Seal all drafts with non-fiberous insulation materials to
prevent debris or water from falling from the chimney
to electric fireplace.
2. Close or seal off the chimney flue and close damper
(if applicable) to prevent rain infiltration.
3. Do not install in an existing fireplace that is prone to
dampness.
4. A provision must be made for the appliance to be
connected to power within existing firebox, or on an
adjacent wall.
C. Installation into New Construction
Position the fireplace within the opening in the framing.
Level the fireplace with shims if necessary. Attach the
fireplace to the framing with the four provided brackets
and screws or nails.
D. Constructing the Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the
electrical appliance. Chases should be constructed in the
manner of all outside walls of the home to prevent cold
air drafting problems. The chase should not break the
outside building envelope in any manner.
Walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor of the chase
should be insulated. Vapor and air infiltration barriers
should be installed in the chase as per regional codes for
the rest of the home. Additionally, in regions where cold
air infiltration may be an issue, the inside surfaces may be
sheetrocked and taped for maximum air tightness.
E. Electrical Connection
Note: All wiring must be completed prior to finishing the unit.
WARNING! Risk of Fire, Electrical Shock, and Injury!
Electrical wiring must comply with local building codes
and other applicable regulations.
WARNING! Risk of Shock! Label all wires prior to
disconnection when servicing product. Wiring errors can
cause improper and dangerous operation. Verify proper
operation after servicing.
A 15 AMP, 120 Volt, 60 Hz. circuit with a properly
grounded outlet is required. Use minimum size 14 AWG
for supply connection to 120 volt, 60 Hz, 15 AMP branch
circuit. Use copper wire only. The supply wiring should
be properly grounded. A dedicated circuit is recommended as other appliances on the circuit may cause
the breaker to trip or fuse to blow when the heater is
operating.
1. Remove the screws securing the junction box cover
plate on the upper right side of appliance.
2. Pull electrical wires from outside appliance through
the 3/4 in. hole in the junction box cover plate.
3. Secure electrical wire to cover plate with Romex
stain relief connector (not provided).
4. Connect three wires to the terminal block in the appliance junction box.
5. Ensure all terminal block connections are tight.
6. Replace the cover and retaining screws.
7. All components and wiring may be inspected by
removing the top inner panel through the fireplace
front opening.
F. Finishing Fireplace Wall
Combustible or non-combustible materials may be used
to finish up to the fireplace glass frame. Ensure that you
leave adequate room to remove and replace the glass
frame. See Figure 4.2
