AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
Providing Adequate Ventilation
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
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 the cold air out and the warm air
in. During heating months, home owners want their homes as
airtight as possible.
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 (6x10-11 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.
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.
If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you
must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
From Outdoors, page 6.
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, 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.
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above,
proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Heater Location, page 5.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE VENTILATION
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.
WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in a
confined space or unusually tight construction unless provisions are provided for adequate combustion
and ventilation air. Read the following instructions to
insure proper fresh air for this and other fuel-burning
appliances in your home.
The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, 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
The information on pages 4 through 6 will help you classify your
space and provide adequate ventilation.
Confined and Unconfined Space
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are doorless
passageways or ventilation grills between them.
Unusually Tight Construction
The 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.

Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual
amount of Btu/Hr used.
__________________ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
Determining if You Have a Confined or
Unconfined Space
__________________ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Example: 51,200 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
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.
60,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
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:
Length x Width x Height = ___________ cu. ft. (volume of space)
A.
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.
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 6.
B.
Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr
the space can support.
Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 6.
C.
Install a lower Btu/Hr heater, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
Example: Space size 20 ft. (length) x 16 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling
height) = 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space)
2.
__________ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support)
Example: 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20 = 51,200 (maximum
Btu/Hr the space can support)
3.
Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.

air ventilation.
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be
operated is smaller than that defined as an unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight
construction, provide adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the methods described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.

Typical Inlet Pipe Diameters
CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
WARNING: This appliance requires a 3/8" NPT
(National Pipe Thread) inlet connection to the pressure regulator.
WARNING: A qualified service person must connect heater to gas supply. Follow all local codes.
WARNING: For natural gas, never connect heater
to private (non-utility) gas wells. This gas is commonly known as wellhead gas.
IMPORTANT: For natural gas, check 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: For propane/LP gas, never connect
heater directly to the propane/LP supply. This heater
requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install
the external regulator between the heater and propane/LP supply.
For propane/LP gas, the installer must supply an external regulator.
The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure. You must
reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 14 inches of water.
If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, heater regulator damage
could occur. Install the external regulator with the vent pointing
down as shown in Figure 14. Pointing the vent down protects it from
freezing rain or sleet.
Propane/LP
Supply
Tank
20,000 Btu/Hr Models - 3/8" or greater

Installation must include equipment shutoff valve, union, and
plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge
hook up. NPT tap must be upstream from heater (see Figure 15).
IMPORTANT: Install an equipment shutoff valve in an accessible
location. The equipment shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting
off the gas to the appliance.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT threads. This will
prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe
could result in clogged heater valves.
WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant
to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
Install sediment trap in supply line as shown in Figure 15. Locate
sediment trap where it is within reach for cleaning. Locate sediment
trap where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap
traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into
heater controls. If sediment trap is not installed or is installed wrong,
heater may not run properly.
IMPORTANT: Hold the pressure regulator with wrench when
connecting it to gas piping and/or fittings. Do not over tighten pipe
connection to regulator. The regulator body could be damaged.

OPERATING HEATER
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ
BEFORE LIGHTING
A. This appliance has a pilot which must be lighted by hand.
When lighting the pilot, follow these instructions exactly.
B. BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around the appliance area
for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas
is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone
in your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
C. Use only your hand to push in or turn the gas control knob.
Never use tools. If the knob will not push in or turn by
hand, don’t try to repair it, call a qualified service technician or gas supplier. Force or attempted repair may result
in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the appliance and to replace any part of the control system
and any gas control which has been under water.

WARNING: If you do not follow these instructions
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property damage, personal injury or loss of life.
Note: You may be running this heater for the first time
after hooking up to gas supply. If so, the control knob may
need to be pressed in for 30 seconds or more. This will allow air to bleed from the gas system.
• If control knob does not pop up when released, contact a
qualified service person or gas supplier for repairs.
With control knob pressed in, push down and release ignitor button. This will light pilot. The pilot is attached to the
front of burner. The pilot can be seen through the glass panel.
If needed, keep pressing ignitor button until pilot lights.
Note: If pilot does not stay lit, refer to Troubleshooting,
pages 17 through 19. Also contact a qualified service person or gas supplier for repairs. Until repairs are made, light
pilot with match. To light pilot with match, see Manual
Lighting Procedure, page 14.
Keep control knob pressed in for 30 seconds after lighting
pilot. After 30 seconds, release control knob.
• If control knob does not pop up when released, contact a
qualified service person or gas supplier for repairs.
Note: If pilot goes out, repeat steps 3 through 7. This
heater has a safety interlock system. Wait one (1) minute
before lighting pilot again.

Shutting Off Burner Only (pilot stays lit)
Turn control knob clockwise

THERMOSTAT CONTROL
OPERATION
The thermostatic control used on these models differs from
standard thermostats. Standard thermostats simply turn on
and off the burner. The thermostat used on this heater senses
the room temperature. The thermostat adjusts the amount of
gas flow to the burner. This increases or decreases the burner
flame height. At times the room may exceed the set temperature.
If so, the burner will shut off. 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 HI and LO.
Selecting the HI setting will cause the burner to remain fully on
without modulating down in most cases.
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, installation location, room size, open air temperatures, etc.). Frequent use of your heater will let you determine your own
comfort levels.

PILOT FLAME PATTERN
Figure 21 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. Figure 22 shows an
incorrect pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not
touching the thermocouple. This will cause the thermocouple to
cool. When the thermocouple cools, the heater will shut down.
If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown in Figure 22
• turn heater off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance)
• see Troubleshooting, pages 17 through 19
Note: The pilot flame on natural gas units will have a slight curve,
but flame should be blue and have no yellow or orange color.

The primary air inlet holes allow the proper amount of air to mix with
the gas. This provides a clean burning flame. Keep these holes clear
of dust, dirt, and lint. Clean these air inlet holes prior to each heating
season. Blocked air holes will create soot. We recommend that you
clean the unit every three months during operation and have heater
inspected yearly by a qualified service person.
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 PSI. Your local
computer store, hardware store, or home center may carry compressed air in a can. You can use a vacuum cleaner in the blow
position. If 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 pilot assembly.
1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the unit to cool for
at least thirty minutes.
2. Inspect burner, pilot for dust and dirt.
3. Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner.
4. Never insert objects into the pilot tube.
Clean the pilot assembly also. A yellow tip on the pilot flame
indicates dust and dirt in the pilot assembly. There is a small pilot
air inlet 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. You may blow through a drinking straw if
compressed air is not available.

WARRANTY INFORMATION
KEEP THIS WARRANTY
Model
Serial No.
Date Purchased
Always specify model and serial numbers when communicating 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.
LIMITED WARRANTY
VENT-FREE RESIDENTIAL GAS HEATERS
DESA International 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.
This warranty is extended only to the original retail purchaser. This warranty covers the cost of part(s) required to restore this heater to proper operating
condition and an allowance for labor when provided by a DESA Authorized Service Center. Warranty part(s) MUST be obtained through authorized
dealers of this product and/or DESA International who will provide original factory replacement parts. Failure to use original factory replacement 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, or 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 other 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, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE TO
TWO (2) YEARS ON ALL COMPONENTS FROM THE DATE OF FIRST PURCHASE; AND DESA INTERNATIONAL’S LIABILITY IS
HEREBY LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT AND DESA INTERNATIONAL 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 of incidental or consequential damages, so
the above limitation on implied warranties, or exclusion or limitation on damages may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
