determine the number of seconds required to consume one
cubic foot of gas.

2. 3600 ÷ time (in seconds) = cu. Ft. per hour.
3. Then cu. Ft. per hour x heating value of gas = input rate
(Btu/hr). On installation without gas meters, check manifold
for proper pressure.
If fireplace is not installed or product card has not been returned
to Empire Comfort System’s, check off type of gas converted to
on the card. Also indicate conversion by adding “Conv.” behind
