Read all instructions thoroughly,
and perform regular maintenance
and service as directed. Keep this
manual on or near the boiler.
62417021 R01 Apr. 08, 2014
This manual is intended only for use by a qualified heating installer/technician. Read and follow this manual, all supplements and
related instructional information provided with the boiler. Install, start and service the boiler only in the sequence and methods
given in these instructions. Failure to do so can result in severe personal injury, death or substantial property damage.
Do not use the boiler during construction. Construction dust and particulate, particularly drywall dust, will cause contamination
of the burner, resulting in possible severe personal injury, death or substantial property damage. The boiler can only be operated with
a dust-free air supply. Follow the instruction manual procedures to duct air to the boiler air intake. If the boiler has been contaminated
by operation with contaminated air, follow the instruction manual guidelines to clean, repair or replace the boiler if necessary.
Affix these instructions near to the boiler. Instruct the building owner to retain the instructions for future use by a qualified service
technician, and to follow all guidelines in the User’s Information Manual.

3 - FUNCTION OVERVIEW
3.1 - Intended use
and functions
3.1.1 Intended use and
functions of the IB boiler
The boiler version, is designed to be
used for central heating system for civil
uses. Any other use is prohibited.
The maximum output heat is always
guaranteed for the production of
domestic hot water since it is given
priority over space heating demands.
The boiler version can be connected
to an indirect storage tank for the
production of domestic hot water.
The boiler version can also function
directly with a radiant floor panel.
3.1.2 Intended use and
functions of the IW water
heater
The water heater version, is designed
to warm domestic water (potable) for
civil uses. Any other use is prohibited.
This water heater must be connected
to a storage water heater for the
production of domestic hot water.
3.2 - Efficiency up
Figure 3-1 Outdoor reset control to optimize the efficiency
11
to 98% (IB boiler
only)
Section applicable to boiler version only.
When the outdoor reset is activated (an
outside sensor is connected), the boiler
always work at the maximum efficiency.
It will automatically change the supply
temperature in relation with the outdoor
temperature (Outdoor reset).
The graph in Figure 3-1 shows an
example on how it can work.
This graph represents an installation
where the supply and return
temperatures are 139°F (60°C) and
115°F (46°C) respectively , and the
outside temperature is 23°F (-5°C).
The outdoor reset drives the boiler,
to progressively reduce the supply
temperature and thereby optimize the
efficiency. It changes from 87% when
outside is -10°F (-23°C), to 94.8% when
outside is 23°F (-5°C) and up to 98%
when the outside temperature rises up
to 67°F (20°C).
4 - INSTALLATION - Vent and combustion air
4.1 - Prevent
combustion air
contamination
Do not terminate vent/air in locations
that can allow contamination of
combustion air.
WARNING!!!
WARNING!!!
Contaminate
combustion air will damage
the boiler, resulting in possible
severe personal injury, death or
substantial property damage.
Ensure that the combustion air
will not contain any of the follow
contaminants.
Products that may contaminated the
air combustion:
- Permanent wave solutions;
- Chlorinated waxes/cleaners;
- Chlorine-based swimming pool
chemicals;
- Calcium chloride used for thawing;
- Sodium chloride used for water
softening;
- Refrigerant leaks;
- Paint or varnish removers;
- Hydrochloric acid/muriatic acid;
- Cements and glues;
- Antistatic fabric softeners used in
clothes dryers;
- Chlorine-type bleaches, detergents,
and cleaning solvents found in
household laundry rooms;
- Adhesives used to fasten building
products and other similar products;
Do not pipe combustion air near
sources of products that may
contaminate the air combustion, like:
-Dry cleaning/laundry areas and
establishments;
- Swimming pools;
- Metal fabrication plants;
- Beauty shops;
- Refrigeration repair shops;
- Photo processing plants;
- Auto body shops;
- Plastic manufacturing plants;
- Furniture refinishing areas and
establishments;
- Remodeling areas;
- Garages with workshops.

switch
This appliance is equipped with a
safety flue blocked pressure switch
that shut-off the unit when the flue
exhaust vent pipe is blocked. If this
pressure switch shuts off the unit (Loc
5 or Loc 25), do not attempt to place
the heater in operation but contact a
qualified service agency.
To reset the blocked vent shut off
system, call a qualified service agency
that will reset the unit after checking
for any potential dangerous situation.
WARNING!!!
