CLEARANCES
MANTELS
The clearances listed below are Minimum
distances unless otherwise stated:
Because of the extreme heat this fireplace emits, the mantel clearances are critical.
Combustible mantel clearances from louver are shown in the diagram below.
A major cause of chimney related fires is
failure to maintain required clearances (air
space) to combustible materials. It is of the
greatest importance that this fireplace and
vent system be installed only in accordance
with these instructions.
Note: A non-combustible mantel may be installed at a lower height if the framing is made
of metal studs covered with a non-combustible board.

the front of the unit. Total facing thickness
can vary from 1/2" (13mm) to 1-1/4" (32mm)
thick.
5) The unit does not have to be completely
enclosed in a chase. The clearance on top
of the unit from the top standoffs is 0" so
combustible building materials can be laid
directly on top of the standoffs. You must
maintain these clearances from the vent
to combustible materials: Flex Termination
clearance 1-1/2" (38mm), Simpson Dura-Vent
clearance or (1-1/4" (32mm). Combustible
materials can be laid against the side and
back standoffs and the fireplace base.

or slots (diagram 4) on the side of the
unit and repeat for the other side. Use
the hole for a 1/2" (13mm) thick facing
material and the slot for a range of
thickness from 3/4" to 1-1/2" (25mm to
38mm).
VENTING
INTRODUCTION
The P42 uses the "balanced flue" technology
Co-Axial system. The inner liner vents products
of combustion to the outside while the outer
liner draws outside combustion air into the
combustion chamber thereby eliminating the
need to use heated room air for combustion and
losing warm room air up the chimney.
Note: These flue pipes must not be
connected to any other appliance.
The gas appliance and vent system must be
vented directly to the outside of the building,
and never be attached to a chimney serving a
separate solid fuel or gas burning appliance.
Each direct vent gas appliance must use it's own
separate vent system. Common vent systems
are prohibited.
VENT RESTRICTOR
Diagram 1
Note: 43" (1092mm) is the minimum height
for flex termination and Rigid Pipe
terminations.
3) For exterior walls, insulate the enclosure to
the same degree as the rest of the house,
apply vapour barrier and drywall, as per
local installation codes. (Do not insulate
the fireplace itself.)
4) The top louvers must not be closer than
36" (914mm) to the ceiling.

A vent restrictor may be required. Check
the diagrams in the "Rigid Pipe Venting
Arrangements" section to determine if the #6
restrictor is needed for your vent configuration.
If required, attach the 2 piece #6 restrictor
using 4 screws per piece to the inside top of
the firebox.

INSTALLATION
RIGID PIPE VENTING
Horizontal or Vertical Terminations
The Rigid Pipe Venting System offers a complete line of component parts for installation of both horizontal and vertical installations. Many items are
offered in decorative black, as well as galvanized finish. We recommend using the galvanized finish for installation with the P42.
Wall thickness is measured from the back
standoffs to the inside mounting surface of
termination cap. For siding other than vinyl
furring strips may be used, instead of the vinyl
siding standoff, to create a level surface to
mount the vent terminal. The Terminal must
not be recessed into siding. Measure the wall
thickness including furring strips.
The minimum components required for a basic
horizontal termination are:

Regency® P42-4 Zero Clearance Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
INSTALLATION
HORIZONTAL
TERMINATIONS
1) Set the unit in its desired location. Check
to determine if wall studs or roof rafters
are in the way when the venting system is
attached. If this is the case, you may want
to adjust the location of the unit. Rough in
the gas preferably on the right side of the
unit and the electrical (junction block is on
the left side) on the left.
b) Horizontal runs of vent must be
supported every 3 feet (0.9meter). Wall
straps are available for this purpose.
5) Mark the wall for a 10" x 10" (254mm x
254mm) square hole. The center of the
square hole should line up with the centerline of the horizontal pipe. Cut and frame the
10 inch (254mm) square hole in the exterior
wall where the vent will be terminated.
If the wall being penetrated is constructed
of non-combustible material, i.e. masonry
block or concrete, a 7" (178mm) diameter (71/2" (190mm) for flex) hole is acceptable.
2) Direct Vent pipe and fittings are designed with
special twist-lock connections to connect the
venting system to the appliance flue outlet. A
twist-lock appliance adaptor is an available
option that must be used in conjunction with
the Simpson Dura-Vent Direct Vent system.
Install the adaptor after the unit is set in its
desired location otherwise the unit will not
fit through the 36-5/8" (930mm) high frame
opening.
Diagram 3
Note: Riser Vent
is only for use
in above grade
terminations.
3) Put a bead of silicone inside the outer
section of the adapter and a bead of Stove
Mate on the inner collar. Slip the adapter
over the existing inner and outer flue collar
and fasten to the outer collar only with the
3 supplied screws (drilling pilot holes will
make this easier). Level the fireplace and
fasten it to the framing using nails or screws
through the nailing strips.
4) Assemble the desired combination of pipe
and elbows to the appliance adaptor and
twist-lock for a solid connection.
Note:
a) Twist-lock procedure: Four indentations,
located on the female ends of pipes and
fittings, are designed to slide straight
onto the male ends of adjacent pipes
and fittings, by orienting the four pipe
indentations so they match and slide in
to the four entry slots on the male ends.
(Diagram 1) Push the pipe sections
completely together, then twist-lock
one section clockwise approximately
one-quarter turn, until the two sections
are fully locked. The female locking lugs
will not be visible from the outside, on
the Black Pipe or fittings. They may be
located by examining the inside of the
female ends.
Diagram 2
Note:
a) The horizontal run of vent must be level,
or have a 1/4 inch rise for every 1 foot
of run towards the termination. Never
allow the vent to run downward. This
could cause high temperatures and may
present the possibility of a fire.
b) The location of the horizontal vent
termination on an exterior wall must
meet all local and national building
codes, and must not be blocked or
obstructed. For External Vent Terminal
Locations, see diagram in the "Exterior
Vent Termination Locations" section.
c) Snorkel Terminations:
For installations requiring a vertical rise
on the exterior of the building, 14-inch
and 36-inch tall Snorkel Terminations
(diagram 3 & 4) are available, as well
as the standard Riser Vent, diagram 3a.
Follow the same installation procedures
as used for standard Horizontal
Termination. NEVER install the snorkel
upside down.
Diagram 1
NOTE: For best results and optimum
performance with each approved venting
system, it is highly recommended to apply
“Mill-Pac” sealant (supplied) to every inner pipe connection. Failure to do so may
result in drafting or performance issues not
covered under warranty. Silicone (red RTV)
is optional.
*Diagrams 3, 3a & 4: As
specified in CGA B149
Installation Code. Local
codes or regulations
may require different
clearances.
Diagram 3a
Below Grade Installation
If the Snorkel Termination must be installed
below grade, i.e. basement application,
proper drainage must be provided to prevent
water from entering the Snorkel Termination.
Refer to Diagram 4.
Do not attempt to
enclose the Snorkel
within the wall, or
any other type of
enclosure.
NOTE: For Snorkel terminations in ABOVE
grade installations, follow national or
local code requirements.

6) The arrow on the vent cap should be
pointing up. Insure that the 1-1/4"(32mm)
clearances to combustible materials
are maintained (Diagram 5). Install the
termination cap.
9) Install wall thimble in the center of the 10"
(254mm) square and attach with wood
screws (Diagram 6).
Note: If installing termination on a siding
covered wall, a vinyl siding standoff
or furring strips must be used to
ensure that the termination is not
recessed into the siding.

4) Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and
elbows. Ensure that all pipes and elbow
connections are in the fully twist-locked
VERTICAL
TERMINATIONS
Diagram 5
The four wood screws provided should
be replaced with appropriate fasteners for
stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of
sidings.
7) Before connecting the horizontal run of vent
pipe to the vent termination, slide the Wall
Thimble (Part # 942) over the vent pipe.
8) Slide the appliance and vent assembly
towards the wall carefully inserting the
vent pipe into the vent cap assembly. It is
important that the vent pipe extends into the
vent cap sufficient distance so as to result
in a minimum pipe overlap of 1-1/4 inches
(32mm). Secure the connection between the
vent pipe and the vent cap by attaching the
two sheet metal strips extending from the
vent cap assembly into the outer wall of the
vent pipe. Use the two sheet metal screws
provided to connect the strips to the pipe
section. See Diagram 6.

position and sealed.
5) Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small
drilled hole placed in the roof in Step 2. The
hole should be of sufficient size to meet
the minimum requirements for clearance
to combustibles of 1-1/4"(32mm). Slip the
flashing under the shingles (shingles should
overlap half the flashing) as per Diagram 4.
Diagram 4: The upper half of the flashing is
installed under the roofing material and not
nailed down until the chimney is installed.
This allows for small adjustments.
6) Continue to assemble pipe lengths.
Note: If an offset is necessary in the attic
to avoid obstructions, it is important
to support the vent pipe every 3
feet (0.9 meter), to avoid excessive
stress on the elbows, and possible
separation. Wall straps are available
for this purpose
(Diagram 2).
Galvanized pipe is desirable above the roofline
due to its higher corrosion resistance. Continue
to add pipe sections through the flashing until
the height of the vent cap meets the minimum
height requirements specified in Diagram 5 or
local codes. Note that for steep roof pitches,
the vertical height must be increased.

A poor draft, or down drafting can result
from high wind conditions near big trees
or adjoining roof lines, in these cases,
increasing the vent height may solve the
problem.
7) Ensure vent is vertical and secure the base
of the flashing to the roof with roofing rails,
slide storm collar over the pipe section and
seal with a mastic.
1) Locate the unit in the framing, rough in the
gas (preferably on the right side of the unit)
and the electrical (Junction block is on the
left side) on the left. Locate the centerline of
the termination and mark wall accordingly.
Cut a 10"(254mm) hole in the wall (inside
dimension).
N o t e : To m a k e
the installation
more aesthetically
pleasing,
we
recommend framing
out a square to
mount the terminal
to.
Note: A 1-1/2"(38mm) clearance around
the liner must be maintained except
that only a 1" (25mm) clearance is
needed at the termination end. We
recommend framing a 10"(254mm) x
10"(254mm) (inside dimensions) hole
to give structural rigidity for mounting
the termination.
8) Install the vertical termination cap by twistlocking it.
Note: If installing termination on a siding
covered wall, furring strips must be
used to ensure that the termination
is not recessed into the siding.
Note: Any closets or storage spaces, which
the vent passes through must be
enclosed.
2) Level the fireplace and fasten it to the framing
using nails or screws through the nailing
strips.
Offset Chart
3) Assemble the vent assembly by applying
Mill Pac to the 4"(100mm) inner collar of the
termination and slipping the 4"(100mm) liner
over it at least 1-3/8" (35mm). Fasten with
the 3 screws (drilling pilot holes will make this
easier). Apply Mill Pac or high temperature
silicone to the 6-7/8"(175mm) flex pipe and
slip it over the 6-7/8" outer collar of the vent
terminal at least 1-3/8"(35mm) and fasten
with the 3 screws.
NOTE:
Horizontal sections must be
supported at intervals not exceeding
3 feet (0.9 meter). (Flame picture and
performance will be affected by sags
in the liner).
4) Separate the 2 halves of the wall thimble and
securely fasten the one with the tabs to the
outside wall making sure that the tabs are
on top and bottom. Fasten the other thimble
half to the inside wall. The thimble halves
slip inside each other and can be adjusted
for 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 walls. The liners must slip
over the collars a minimum of 1-3/8".
5) Slip the assembled liner and termination
assembly through the thimble making sure
the termination cap faces up (there are
markings on the cap that show which way
is up). This will position the termination cap
with proper down slope for draining water.
Fasten the cap to the outer wall with the 4
supplied screws.
6) Pull the centre 4"(100mm) liner and outer
6-7/8"(175mm) liner out enough to slip over
the flue collars of the fireplace. (You may
wish to cut the liner shorter to make it more
workable.) Do not bend liner more than
90o.
7) Apply Mill Pac over the fireplace inner collar
and slip the 4"(100mm) liner down over it
and attach with 3 supplied screws.
8) Do the same with the 6-7/8"(175mm) liner.
9) Apply a bead of silicone between the thimble
and termination and around the outer edge
of the terminal at the wall in order to keep
the water out.
IMPORTANT:
Do not locate termination hood where
excessive snow or ice buildup 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.

GAS LINE
INSTALLATION
The gas line can be brought through either the
right or the left side of the appliance. The gas
valve is situated on the right hand side of the
unit and the gas inlet is on the right hand side
of the valve.
Note: If the gas line is being installed from
the left side, be sure to leave room to
accommodate servicing of the fan.
The gas line connection may be made of rigid
pipe, copper pipe or an approved flex connector.
(If you are using rigid pipe, ensure that the valve
can be removed for servicing.) Since some
municipalities have additional local codes it is
always best to consult with your local authorities
and the CAN/CGA B149 installation code.
For USA installations follow local codes and/or
the current National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1.
When using copper or flex connectors use only
approved fittings. Always provide a union so that
gas lines can be easily disconnected for burner
or fan servicing. Flare nuts for copper lines and
flex connectors are usually considered to meet
this requirement.
4) Light the pilot and turn the valve to "ON"
position.
5) The pressure check should be carried out
with the unit burning and the setting should
be within the limits specified on the safety
label.
6) When finished reading manometer, turn
off the gas valve, disconnect the hose
and tighten the screw (clockwise) with a
1/8"(3mm) flat screwdriver. Note: Screw
should be snug, but do not over
tighten.

GAS PIPE PRESSURE
TESTING
The appliance must be isolated from the gas
supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shut-off valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig.
(3.45 kPa). Disconnect piping from valve at
pressures over 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa).
The manifold pressure is controlled by a regulator
built into the gas control, and should be checked
at the pressure test point.
Note: To properly check gas pressure, both
inlet and manifold pressures should
be checked using the valve pressure
ports on the valve.
1) Make sure the valve is in the "OFF"
position.
2) Loosen the "IN" and/or "OUT" pressure
tap(s), turning counterclockwise with a 1/8"

FIRST FIRE
The first fire in your fireplace is part of the
paint curing process. To ensure that the paint
is properly cured, it is recommended that you
burn your fireplace for at least four (4) hours the
first time you use it with the fan on. When first
operated, the unit will release an odour caused
by the curing of the paint, the burning off of
any oils remaining from manufacturing. Smoke
detectors in the house may go off at this time.
Open a few windows to ventilate the room for
a couple of hours.
The glass panel may require cleaning after the
unit has cooled down.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE
GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT.
Note: When the glass is cold and the
appliance is lit, it may cause
condensation and fog the glass.
DO NOT BURN THE APPLIANCE
WITHOUT THE GLASS FRONT IN
PLACE.
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will
expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some "cracking" and "ticking" sounds will be
heard throughout the cycling process.
MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
During the first few fires, a white film
may develop on the glass front as part
of the curing process. The glass should
be cleaned or the film will bake on and
become very difficult to remove. Use a
non-abrasive cleaner and NEVER clean
the glass while it is hot.
1) Always turn off the gas valve before cleaning.
For relighting, refer to lighting instructions.
Keep the burner and control compartment
clean by brushing and vacuuming at least
once a year. When cleaning the logs, use a
soft clean paint brush as the logs are fragile
and easily damaged.
NORMAL OPERATING
SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
2) Clean appliance and door with a damp
cloth (never when unit is hot). Never use
an abrasive cleaner. The glass should be
cleaned with a gas fireplace glass cleaner.
The glass should be cleaned when it
starts looking cloudy.
It is possible that you will hear some sounds
from your gas appliance. This is perfectly normal
due to the fact that there are various gauges
and types of steel used within your appliance.
Listed below are some examples. All are normal
operating sounds and should not be considered
as defects in your appliance.
3) The heater is finished in a heat resistant
paint and should only be refinished with heat
resistant paint. Regency® uses StoveBright
Paint - Metallic Black #6309.
Blower:
Regency® gas appliances use high tech blowers
to push heated air farther into the room. It is not
unusual for the fan to make a "whirring" sound
when ON. This sound will increase or decrease
in volume depending on the speed setting of
your fan speed control.
4) Make a periodic check of burner for proper
position and condition. Visually check the
flame of the burner periodically, making sure
the flames are steady; not lifting or floating. If
there is a problem, call an authorized service
person.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under the
burner tube and logs and is made of a different
gauge material from the rest of the firebox and
body. Therefore, the varying thicknesses of steel
will expand and contract at slightly different
rates which can cause "ticking" and "cracking"
sounds. You should also be aware that as there
are temperature changes within the unit these
sounds will likely re-occur. Again, this is normal
for steel fireboxes.
5) The appliance and venting system must be
inspected before use, and at least annually,
by an authorized field service person, to
ensure that the flow of combustion and
ventilation air is not obstructed.
6) Verify proper operation after servicing.
Note:
Never operate the appliance without
the glass properly secured in
place.
Blower Thermodisc:
When this thermally activated switch turns ON
it will create a small "clicking" sound. This is the
switch contacts closing and is normal.
Pilot Flame:
While the pilot flame is on it can make a very
slight "whisper" sound.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a
dull clicking sound may be audible, this is normal
operation of a gas regulator or valve.
