VENT INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
It is important to select the proper length of vent pipe for the type of termination you choose. It is also important to note the
wall thickness. Venting terminals shall never be recessed into a wall or siding.
FOR HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
Select the amount of vertical rise desired. All horizontal run of venting
must have 1/4" rise for every 12" of run towards the termination.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. See
Horizontal Termination Configurations on pages 19 and 20.
WARNING
Never run the vent pipe level or downward.
This may cause excessive temperatures which
could cause a fire.
FOR VERTICAL TERMINATION
Measure the distance from the fireplace floor to the ceiling. Add the ceiling thickness, the vertical rise in an attic or second story,
and allow for sufficient vent height above the roof line.
NOTE: You may use two 45° elbows in place of a 90° elbow. You must follow rise to run ratios when using 45° elbows.
The appliance is approved for use with three 90° elbows maximum or a combination of 90° and 45° elbows up to a
maximum of 270°.
For two-story applications, firestops are required at each floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic, additional pipe and elbows
will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination with exposed pipe on the exterior of the house. See Installing Vent System in a Chase
below. If pipe is enclosed in chase, it is not exposed.
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust.
Certain limitations apply to vent configurations and must be strictly followed.
INSTALLING A VENT SYSTEM IN AN OUTSIDE CHASE
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose venting that runs along the outside of a building. A chase is required for
such venting.
NOTICE
NOTICE
14
Treatment of firestops and construction of the chase may vary from building type to
building type. These instructions are not substitutes for the requirements of local building
codes. You must follow all local building codes.
When installing in a chase, you should insulate the chase as you would the outside walls of
your home. This is especially important in cold climates. Insulation should be considered
a combustible material. Maintain proper clearances to all combustible materials.

HOW TO USE THE VENT GRAPH
The Vent Graph should be read in conjunction with the following
vent installation instructions to determine the relationship between
the vertical and horizontal dimensions of the vent system.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this dimension on the Sidewall
Vent Graph below, locate the point intersecting with the slanted
graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line to the
bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the fireplace in
accordance with same.
Example: If the vertical dimension from the floor of the
fireplace is 11' (3.4m) the horizontal run to the face of the
outer wall must not exceed 8.5'.
Example: If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit
is 7’ (2.14m), the horizontal run to the face of the outer
wall must not exceed 6'.

1. Locate and cut the vent opening in the wall. For combustible walls first frame in opening. See Figure 11.
Combustible Walls: Cut a 101⁄2"H x 101⁄2" W
(267mm x 267mm ) hole through the exterior wall
and frame as shown. See Figure 12.
Noncombustible Walls: Hole opening should be

81⁄2" (216mm) in diameter.
2. Rigid vent pipes and fittings have special twist-lock
connections. Assemble the desired combination of
pipe and elbows to the appliance adaptor with pipe
seams oriented towards the wall or floor.
Twist-lock Procedure: The female ends of the pipes
and fittings have three locking lugs (indentations).
These lugs will slide straight into matching slots on
the male end of adjacent pipes and fittings. Push
the pipe sections together and twist one section
clockwise approximately one-quarter turn until the
sections are fully locked. See Figure 13.
Figure 12 - Vent Opening Requirements
Female Locking Lugs
Note: Horizontal runs of vent must
be supported every three feet
(914mm). Use wall straps for this
purpose.
Male Slots
3. Attach vent pipe assembly to the fireplace. Set fireplace in front of its permanent location to insure
minimum clearances. Mark the wall for a 10 1⁄2"H
x 101⁄2"W (241mm x 241 mm) square hole (for
noncombustible material such as masonry block or
concrete, a 81/2" [216mm] diameter hole is acceptFigure 13 - Rigid Vent Pipe Connections
able). See Figure 11. The center of the hole should
line up with the center line of the horizontal rigid
vent pipe end. Be sure to allow for minimum rise. Cut a 10-1/2"x10-1/2" (267mm X 267mm) square hole through combustible
exterior wall (81/2" [216mm] diameter hole if noncombustible). Frame as necessary. Allow 1/4" minimum rise per foot. See

maintained. Attach the vent cap with four wood screws supplied. See Figure 14.
NOTE: Replace the wood screws with appropriate fasteners
for stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of siding.
For vinyl siding, stucco, or wood exterior use vinyl siding standoffs between vent cap and exterior wall. The vinyl siding standoff
prevents excessive heat from melting the vinyl siding material. Bolt
the vent cap to the standoff. Apply non-hardening mastic around
outside edge of the standoff instead of the vent cap assembly. Use
wood screws provided to attach the standoff. See Figure 15.
5. Slide the wall thimble over the vent pipe before connecting
the horizontal run to the vent cap. See Figure 16.
6. Carefully move the fireplace with vent assembly attached
toward the wall and insert the vent pipe into the horizontal
termination. The pipe overlap should be a minimum of 11/4".
Apply silicone to the outer pipe connection. Fasten all vent
connections with screws provided.
7. Slide the wall thimble against the interior wall surface and
attach with srews. See Figure 16.
VENT INSTALLATION
HORIZONTAL TERMINATION CONFIGURATIONS — RIGID VENTING
Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas
exhaust, certain limitations as to vent configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.
The Vent Graph, showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting, will help to determine the various
dimensions allowable. See page 16.
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is 3" on top and 1" from bottom and sides unless
otherwise noted.
When vent termination exits through foundations less than 20" below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must flush up with the siding.
It is best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace (or the top of the Transition
Elbow) to the face of the outer wall.
FOR STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS:
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires the installation and USE of Carbon Monoxide detectors
in the rooms of ALL direct vent units which utilize a SIDE WALL VENTING TERMINATION

BELOW GRADE INSTALLATIONS — RIGID VENTING
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal clearances of 12" above grade level, a snorkel kit is recommended. It
allows installation depth down to 7" (178mm) below grade level. The 7" (178mm) is measured from the center of the horizontal
vent pipe as it penetrates through the wall.
Ensure that sidewall venting clearances are observed. If venting system is installed below ground, we recommend a window
well with adequate and proper drainage to be installed around the termination area.
If installing a snorkel, a minimum 24" vertical rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with the 36” vertical pipe is 20".
This measurement is taken from the collar of the fireplace (or transition elbow) to the face of the exterior wall. See the Sidewall
Venting Graph for extended horizontal run if the vertical exceeds 24".
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. See Figure 12, page 17.
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16" below base of snorkel. Install drain pipe. Install window well (not supplied).
Refill hole with 12" of coarse gravel leaving a clearance of approximately 4" below snorkel. See Figure 21.
3. Install vent system.
4. Ensure a watertight seal is made around the vent pipe coming through the wall.
5. Apply high temperature sealant caulking (supplied) around the 4" and 7" snorkel collars.
6. Slide the snorkel into the vent pipes and secure to the wall.
7. Level the soil so as to maintain a 4" clearance below snorkel. See Figure 23.
IMPORTANT: For below grade installations

tions including the snorkel vent application for
basements.
If the foundation is recessed, use recess brackets (not supplied) for securing lower portion of the snorkel. Fasten brackets to wall
first, then secure to snorkel with self drilling #8x1/2 sheet metal screws. It will be necessary to extend vent pipes out as far as the
protruding wall face. See Figure 24.

VENT INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION FOR VERTICAL TERMINATION
1. Determine the route your vertical venting will take. If ceiling joist,
roof rafters or other framing will obstruct the venting system, consider
an offset. See Figure 27 to avoid cutting load bearing members.
NOTE: Pay special attention to these installation instructions for
required clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing
through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, etc. Do
not pack air spaces with insulation. Also note maximum vertical
rise of the venting system and any maximum horizontal offset
limitations. Offsets must fall within the parameters shows in
Figure 10, page 16.

2. Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a line plumb down from the
ceiling to the position of the flue exit. Mark the center point where
the vent will penetrate the ceiling. Drill a small locating hole a this
point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the ceiling locating hole in the ceiling. Mark the center point where the vent will
penetrate the roof. Drill a small locating hole at this point.
FLAT CEILING INSTALLATION
Ceiling Firstop
Figure 27 - Offset with Wall Strap and 45 Elbows
1. Cut a 101/2" (267mm) square hole in the ceiling using the locating
hole as a center point The opening should be framed to 101/2"x101/2"
(267mm x 267mm) inside dimensions as shown in Figure 12, page
17 using framing lumber the same size as the ceiling joist. If the
area above the ceiling is an insulated ceiling or a room, nail firestop
from the top side. This prevents loose insulation from falling into
the required clearance space. See Figure 28. Otherwise, install firestop
below the framed hole. The firestop should be installed with no less
than three nails per side. See Figure 29.
2. Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach
from the burner system flue up through the firestop. Be sure pipe and
elbow connections are fully twist-locked. See Figure 13, page 17.

3. Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center point.
(Cover any exposed open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof ).
The 101/2"x101/2" (267mm x 267mm) hole must be measured on the
horizontal. Actual length may be larger depending on the pitch of
the roof. There must be a 1" minimum clearance from the vent
pipe to combustible materials. (Insulation should be considered a
combustible material) Frame the opening as shown in Figure 12 on
page 17.

VENT INSTALLATION
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the hole.
NOTE: If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, you must support the vent pipe every three (3) feet. Use wall
straps for this purpose. See Figure 25, page 22. Whenever possible, use 45° elbows instead of 90° elbows. The 45°
elbow offers less restriction to the flow of the ue gases and intake air.
5. Place the flashing over the pipe section(s) extending through the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to the roof and framing
with roofing nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps the top edge of the flashing. There must be a 1" clearance from the vent
pipe to combustible materials.
6. Continue to add pipe sections until the height of the vent cap meets the minimum building code requirements.
NOTE: You must increase vent height for steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep pitched roofs,
and other similar factors may cause poor draft or down-drafting in high winds. Increasing the vent height may solve
this problem.
NOTE: If the vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above the first floor, including storage spaces and closets,
you must enclose pipe. You may frame and sheetrock the enclosure with standard construction material. Make sure
to meet the minimum allowable clearances to combustibles. Do not fill any of the required clearance spaces with
insulation.

FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
CHECK GAS TYPE
Use proper gas type for the fireplace you are installing. If you have conflicting gas type, do not install fireplace. See dealer where
you purchased the fireplace for proper fireplace for your gas type or conversion kit.
INSTALLING GAS PIPING TO FIREPLACE / BURNER SYSTEM LOCATION
WARNING
A qualified installer or service person must
connect appliance to gas supply. Follow all
local codes.
CAUTION
For propane/LP units, never connect fireplace directly to the propane/LP supply. This
burner system requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator
between the burner system and propane/LP supply.
INSTALLATION ITEMS NEEDED
Before installing fireplace and burner system, make sure you have the items listed below.
•
•
•
•
External regulator (supplied by installer)
• Piping (check local codes)
• Sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
Equipment shutoff valve*
• Test gauge connection*
• Sediment trap (recommended)
Tee joint
• Pipe wrench
approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes — not provided)
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection.
Purchase the CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your dealer.
For propane/LP connections only, 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 13 inches of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas
pressure, burner system regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure
32. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

CAUTION
Use only new black iron or steel pipe. Internally
tinned copper or copper tubing can be used per
National Fuel Code, section 2.6.3, providing gas
meets hydrogen sulfide limits, and where permitted
by local codes. Gas piping system must be sized
to provide minimum inlet pressure (listed on data
plate) at the maximum flow rate (BTU/hr). Undue
pressure loss will occur if the pipe is too small.
When using copper or flex connectors use only fittings approved
for gas connections. The gas control inlet is 3/8" NPT.

FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
CAUTION
WARNING
Only persons licensed to work with gas piping
may make the necessary gas connections to
this appliance.
A manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream
of the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8"
NPT pressure tapping point should be installed
upstream of the appliance. See Figure 33.
NOTE : The gas line connection may be made using 1/2" rigid tubing or an approved flex connector. Since some
municipalities have additional local codes it is always best to consult your local authorities and the current edition
of the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1, NFPA54. In Canada CAN/CGA-B149 (1 or 2) Installation Code.
A listed manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream of the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8" NPT pressure tapping
point should be installed upstream of the appliance. See Figure 33.
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve) in an accessible location. The main gas valve is for
turning on or shutting off the gas to the fireplace.
Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will prevent
excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could
result in clogged burner system valves.
CAUTION
Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid
petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg in supply
line as shown in Figure 33. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping system between
fuel supply and burner system. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps
moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into the burner system gas controls. If sediment trap/drip leg is not
installed or is installed wrong, burner system may not run properly.

ACTION
A. Open door and check to make sure wire is connected to ignitor.
B. Check for spark at electrode and pilot. If no spark and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace pilot assembly.
C. Check remote/manual shut off valve from fireplace. Low pressure
can be caused by bent lines, restricted lines, low pressure line pressure. Consult with plumber or gas supplier.
D. Check Propane/LPG tank. Refill tank.
A. Check that thermocouple flame impinges on thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement. Ensure that
the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is fully inserted and
tight.
Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one millivolt
lead wire on the tip of the thermocouple and the other meter lead
wire on the thermocouple copper lead. Start the pilot and hold the
valve knob in. If the millivolt reading is less than 15 mV, replace
pilot assembly.
B. If thermocouple is producing more than 15 mV, replace
faulty valve.
A. Check switch and wire for proper connection. Place jumper wires
across terminals of switch. If burner comes on, replace defective
switch.If the switch is OK, repeat the same procedure on remote
control If burner comes on, replace remote control.
Place jumper wire across wire at gas valves (terminals marked TH
and TP/TH). If burner comes on, wires are faulty or connections
are bad. Replace wire.
B. If pilot flame is not close enough to the thermopile, adjust
pilot flame.
C. Check thermopile wire connections to make sure all are tight and
that the thermopile is fully inserted into pilot assembly. Check
thermopile with a millivolt meter. Connect leads to TP and TP/
TH terminals on the control valve. If meter reading is below 325
mV, replace pilot assembly.
D. Turn valve knob to “ON” and switch to “ON.” Take a reading at
the thermopile leads (TP & TP/TH) on the valve. If the meter
reads greater than 175 mV and the burner does not light, replace
defective valve.
