5. Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards
of high surface temperatures and should stay away to
avoid burns or clothing ignition.
6. Install in an area providing adequate combustion and
ventilation air (see section on adequate combustion and
ventilation air requirements – page 2).
7. Do not install in a building that is of unusually tight
construction. Unusually tight construction is defined as
construction where:
a. Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside
atmosphere have a continuous wall vapor
retarder with a rating of 1 perm or less with
openings gasketed or sealed, and
b. Weather striping has been added on
openable windows and doors, and
c. Caulking or sealants are applied to areas
such as joints around window and door

PRE-INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Combustion and Ventilation Air Requirement Worksheet (Vent Free only)
WARNING: IF THE AREA IN WHICH THE HEATER MAY BE OPERATED IS SMALLER THAN THAT
DEFINED AS 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 SECTION 5.3 OR
APPLICABLE LOCAL CODES.
This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction unless provisions are provided
for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
The following formula can be used to determine the maximum BTU rating per the definition of unconfined space:
STEP ONE: DETERMINE THE VOLUME OF SPACE IN CUBIC FEET.
LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT = ________________ cu. Ft.
(Include adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills between rooms.)
Example: 24’ (L) X 16’ (W) X 8’ (H) = 3,072. cu. Ft.
STEP TWO: MULTIPLY THE VOLUME OF SPACE BY 20 BTU/Hr. TO DETERMINE THE MAXIMUM BTU/Hr.
THE SPACE CAN SUPPORT.
Example: 3,072 cu. Ft. X 20 BTU/Hr. = 61,440 BTU/Hr.
(Maximum BTU/Hr. the room can support)
STEP THREE: ADD THE BTU/Hr. OF ALL THE FUEL BURNING APPLIANCES IN THE SPACE.
VENT FREE HEATER_________________BTU/Hr.
GAS APPLIANCE #1 _________________BTU/Hr.
GAS APPLIANCE #2 _________________BTU/Hr.
Example:
VENT FREE HEATER 26,000 BTU/Hr.
GAS APPLIANCE #1 35,000 BTU/Hr.
TOTAL 61,000 BTU/Hr.
NOTE: DO NOT INCLUDE DIRECT-VENT GAS APPLIANCES. DIRECT VENT IS SEALED
COMBUSTION AND DRAWS COMBUSTION AIR FROM THE OUTDOORS.
THE SPACE IN THE ABOVE EXAMPLE IS AN UNCONFINED SPACE BECAUSE THE 61,000 BTU’S AN HOUR USAGE IS
LESS THATN THE 61,440 BTU’S AN HOUR AVAILABLE. IF THE TOTAL BTU’S AN HOUR USAGE IS GREATER THAN
61,440 BTU’S AN HOUR THEN THE SPACE WOULD BE A CONFINED SPACE AND ADDITIONAL AIR MUST BE
PROVIDED.
The National Fuel Gas Code 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 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.

INSTALLATION SPECIFICATIONS
Minimum Clearances to Combustible Materials (Vent Free only)
IMPORTANT: To insure a safe installation into a
masonry or factory built fireplace, the following
instructions must be carefully observed. If installing in a
pre-manufactured fireplace follow the clearance
requirements accompanying that fireplace.
Refer to Fig. 1 for the following dimensions:
A. Minimum left and right clearance to combustible walls =
15”.
B. Minimum clearance to combustible ceiling = 42”.
C. Minimum left and right side clearances to mantle = 6”.
Note: Clearances to Combustible Materials and
Mantle Clearances are in place to provide adequate
spacing to prevent a fireplace mantle or facing from
catching fire. In most cases they should also be
adequate to prevent any discoloration or warping due to
heat. However, each Gas Log installation will present
unique circumstances creating many variables beyond
the control of the Gas Log Manufacturer, including paint
or finish composition, previous heat exposure, quality of
construction, air flow patterns etc. Because of these
variables we cannot guarantee that heat warping or
discoloration will never occur. The possibility of heat
damage exists whether burning wood or gas logs.
Mantle Clearances (Vent Free only)

INSTALLATION SPECIFICATIONS
Mantle Clearances cont. (Vent Free only)
Woodwork such as mantles and other combustible material
must be installed as tested per Fig. 3 or Fig. 4.
NOTE: Heat Resistant Material as shown in Fig. 3 are
materials such as gypsum board, sheetrock, slate, tile,
marble etc.
If mantle and wall are both non-combustible,
mantle clearances are not applicable.
FIREPLACE HOOD (CANOPY)
A hood (canopy) as shown in Fig. 5 is used to
deflect heat away from the fireplace face and
mantle, reducing the chances of heat damage or
discoloration. If using a hood, it must project a
minimum of 4” from the face of the firebox.
Contact your dealer to purchase a fireplace
hood.
