OWNER’S MANUAL
AIR FOR
COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
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.
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.
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.
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 fuelburning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE
VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National
Fuel Gas Code. NFPA 54/ANS Z223.1, 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 5 through 7 will
help you classify your space and provide
adequate ventilation.
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.
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 (6 x 10-11 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.
Confined and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code (ANS Z223.1,
1992 Section 5.3) 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
unconfining 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.
This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction
unless provisions are provided for adequate
combustion and ventilation air.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only
if there are doorless passageways or ventilation grills between them.
If your home meets all of the three
criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
From Outdoors, page 7.
If your home does not meet all of the
three criteria above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Fireplace
Location, page 6.

DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR FIREPLACE LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space
Use this worksheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will install fireplace plus any adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills
between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
Length x Width x Height = _________________ cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example: Space size 20 ft. (length) x 16 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space)
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.
2. Divide the space volume by 50 cubic feet to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
_________________ (volume of space) ÷ 50 cu. ft. = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
Example: 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space) ÷ 50 cu. ft. = 51.2 or 51,200 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
Vent-free fireplace
________________ Btu/Hr
Gas water heater
________________ Btu/Hr
Example:
Gas furnace
________________ Btu/Hr
Gas water heater
30,000
Btu/Hr
Vented gas heater
________________ Btu/Hr
Vent-free fireplace +
26,000
Btu/Hr
Gas fireplace logs
________________ Btu/Hr
Total
=
56,000
Btu/Hr
Other gas appliances* + ________________ Btu/Hr
Total
= ________________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws combustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
4. Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual amount of Btu/Hr used.
_____________ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
_____________ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Example: 51,200 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
56,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
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:
A. 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 7.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 7.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr fireplace, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is an unconfined space. You will need no
additional fresh 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, ANS Z223.1, 1992, Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.

Attaching Wood Base to Solid
Floor
For attaching base to solid floors (concrete
or masonry)
Note: Floor anchors and mounting screws
are in hardware package. The hardware package is provided with fireplace.
1. Drill holes at marked locations using
5/16" drill bit. For solid floors (concrete
or masonry), drill at least 1" deep.
2. Fold floor anchor as shown in Figure 15.
3. Insert floor anchor (wings first) into
hole. Tap anchor flush to floor.
4. Insert mounting screws through base
and into floor anchors.
5. Tighten screws until base is firmly fastened to floor.
CONNECTING TO GAS
SUPPLY
NOTICE: A qualified service person must connect fireplace to
gas supply. Follow all local codes.
WARNING: Never connect
fireplace to private (non-utility)
gas wells. This gas is commonly
known as wellhead gas.
IMPORTANT: Check gas line pressure
before connecting fireplace to gas line. Gas
line pressure must be no greater than 14
inches of water. If gas line pressure is higher,
fireplace regulator damage could occur.
CAUTION : Use only new,
black iron or steel pipe. Internally-tinned copper tubing may
be used in certain areas. Check
your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2"
or greater diameter to allow
proper gas volume to fireplace. If
pipe is too small, undue loss of
pressure will occur.
Figure 15 - Folding Anchor
Installation must include a manual 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
fireplace (see Figure 16).
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 fireplace valves.
CAUTION: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
Install sediment trap in supply line as shown
in Figure 16. 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 fireplace controls. If sediment
trap is not installed or is installed wrong,
fireplace may not run properly.

LIMITED WARRANTY
VENT-FREE NATURAL GAS COMPACT FIREPLACE
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
fireplace 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 fireplace 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 fireplace 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 FROM THE DATE OF FIRST PURCHASE;

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.
