C. Approved Pipe
This appliance is approved for use with Hearth & Home
Technologies SLP venting systems. Refer to Section 11.A
for vent component information and dimensions.
DO NOT mix pipe, fittings or joining methods from different
manufacturers.
The pipe is tested to be run inside an enclosed wall. There
is no requirement for inspection openings at each joint
within the wall.
WARNING! Risk of Fire or Asphyxiation. This appliance
requires a separate vent. DO NOT vent to a pipe serving a
separate solid fuel burning appliance.
DO NOT USE FIELD-FABRICATED VENTING
COMPONENTS.
This product is approved to be vented either horizontally,
through the side wall or vertically through the roof. You may
vent through a Class A or masonry chimney if an approved
adapter is used.
This appliance is a direct vent heater. All combustion air must
come directly from the outside of the building. The vent pipe
for this unit consists of an inner and an outer pipe. The inner
pipe carries the appliance exhaust out of the system, and
the outer pipe brings fresh combustion air into the appliance.
•A round support box/wall thimble or heat shield is required
when the venting passes through a combustible wall.
•A support box or ceiling firestop is required when the
venting passes through a ceiling.
• Roof flashing and a storm collar are required when venting
passes through the roof.
• Follow instructions provided with the venting for installation
of these items.

D. Use of Elbows
Diagonal runs have both vertical and horizontal vent aspects
when calculating the effects. Use the rise for the vertical
aspect and the run for the horizontal aspect. See Figure 4.4.
Y
Y
Two 45º elbows may be used in place of one 90º elbow. On
45º runs, one foot of diagonal is equal to 8-1/2 in. (216 mm)
horizontal run and 8-1/2 in. (216 mm) vertical run. A length
of straight pipe is allowed between two 45º elbows. See
Figure 4.4.

E. Measuring Standards
Vertical and horizontal measurements listed in the vent
diagrams were made using the following standards:
• Pipe measurements are shown using the effective length of
pipe. See Figure 11.1 for SLP for information on effective
length of pipe components.
•Horizontal terminations are measured to the outside
mounting surface (flange of termination cap) (see Figure
4.3).
• Vertical terminations are measured to bottom of
termination cap.
•Horizontal pipe installed level with 1/4 inch rise per foot.

must be used prior to any
horizontal run. Derating orifice must be used.
See Figure 4.6.
Horizontal Run requires a non-combustible support
every 5 ft (1.5 m), i.e., plumbing tape
A vent run off the top of the appliance must have a
minimum vertical of 2 feet.
!
CAUTION
Venting straight out the rear without
vertical rise is prohibited

G. Vent Diagrams
To replace the first 90º starter elbow with two 45º elbows,
refer to Figure 4.7. All other 90º elbows can be replaced
with two 45º elbows.
General Rules:
• SUBTRACT 3 ft. from the total H measurement for each
90º elbow installed horizontally.
• SUBTRACT 1 ft. from the total H measurement for each
45º elbow installed horizontally.
•A maximum of three 90º elbows (or six 45º elbows) may
be used in any vent configuration. Some elbows may be
installed horizontally. See specific vent diagrams.
• When penetrating a combustible wall, a wall shield firestop
must be installed.
• When penetrating a combustible ceiling, a ceiling firestop
must be installed.

to fit
1. Before cutting any holes, assemble the desired sections
of direct vent pipe to determine the center of the masonry
penetration.
2.Once the center point of the penetration has been
determined, cut a 6 in. (152mm) diameter hole in the
masonry. If the hole is too large, the retro connector
might not mount properly; if the hole is too small, the
appliance might starve for intake air. If there is a frame
wall in front of the masonry wall, cut and frame a 10 in.
(254mm) square opening in the wall (centered around
the 6 in. (152mm) masonry opening). If there is sheet
rock only (no studs) in front of the masonry the 10 in.
(254mm) opening is still needed, but does not need to be
framed. If the hole is framed a wall thimble is required.
This allows the retro connector to mount directly on
the masonry and provide the correct clearances to
combustibles. See Figure 4.23.

4. To determine the length of flex needed, measure from
3 in. (76mm) above the top of the flashing down to the
level of the opening. Add the distance from the center
of the chimney out through the wall. Cut a piece of 4
in. (102mm) flex to this length (extended to its nominal
length). Be sure to leave 2-3 in. (51-76mm) of flex above
the existing chimney to allow for connection to the
termination kit.
5.Connect the flex liner to the top adapter using three
sheet metal screws. See Figure 4.19.
6. Feed the flex liner through the flashing into the chimney.
Carefully feed the flex liner down the chimney to the
bottom and out the opening in the masonry wall, forming
an angle to line up the flex liner with the vent opening on
the appliance.

WARNING! Risk of Fire, Explosion or Asphyxiation!
Improper support may allow vent to sag and separate. Use
vent run supports and connect vent sections per installation
instructions. DO NOT allow vent to sag below connection
point to appliance.
7. If additional lengths of flex liner are needed to span the
chimney height, use a flex coupler to connect the pieces
of flex liner together. Connect the flex to the coupler by
using four sheet metal screws for each side. See Figure
4.25.
