WATER VAPOR: A BY-PRODUCT OF UNVENTED ROOM HEATERS
Water vapor is a by-product of gas combustion. An unvented room heater produces
approximately one (1) ounce (30 mL) of water for every 1,000 BTUs (0.3 Kw) of gas input
per hour. An unvented room heater is intended as a supplemental heater rather than a primary heat
source. In most supplemental heat applications, the water vapor does not create a problem.
In most applications, the water vapor enhances the low humidity atmosphere experienced during
cold weather.
The following steps will help ensure that water vapor does not become a problem:
1. Be sure the heater is the proper size for the application, including adequate combustion air and
circulation air.
2. If there is high humidity, a dehumidifier may be used to help lower the water vapor content
of the air.
3. Do not use an unvented room heater as the primary heat source.

PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
CAUTION: This heater shall not be installed in a room or space unless the required volume
of indoor combustion air is provided by the method described in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANS
Z223.1/NFPA54, the International Fuel Gas Code, or applicable local codes.
PRODUCING ADEQUATE 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 7 through 9 will help you classify your space and provide adequate ventilation.
Confined and Unconfined Space
A confined space as a space whose volume is less than 50 cu. ft. per 1,000 BTU/hr (4.8 m^3 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 cu. ft. per 1,000 BTU/hr (4.8 m^3 per kw) of the aggregate
input rating of all appliances installed in that space. Rooms connecting 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 connecting only if there are doorless passageways or ventilation
grills between them.
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 (6x10-11kg per pa-sec-m2) or less with openings gasketed or sealed
and
b) weather stripping has been added on windows that can be opened and on 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.
If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air.
See “Ventilation Air From Outdoors” (page 9). If your home does not meet all of the
three criteria above, proceed to “Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Heater Location”.

PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION
DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR HEATER 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 heater plus any adjoining rooms with
doorless passageways or ventilation grills between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space Length × Width × Height = cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example: Space size 20 ft. (length) × 16 ft.(width) × 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 cu. ft. 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 heater _________ BTU/hr
Gas water heater* ________BTU/hr
Gas furnace _____________BTU/hr
Vented gas heater ________BTU/hr Example:
Gas heater logs __________BTU/hr Gas water heater 30,000 BTU/hr
Other gas appliances*+ ____BTU/hr Vent-free heater + 26,000 BTU/hr
Total = ____BTU/hr Total = 56,000 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 9.
b) Vent room directly to the outdoors. See “Ventilation Air From Outdoors”, page 9.
c) Install a lower BTU/hr heater 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.

Methods For Attaching Mounting Bracket To Wall
Use only the last hole on each end of mounting bracket to attach bracket to wall. Attach
mounting bracket to a wall only in one of two ways:
1. Attaching to wall stud: This method provides the strongest hold. Insert wood screws (ST.8*45-16)
through mounting bracket and into wall studs.
2. Attaching to expansion bracket: This method allows you to attach mounting bracket to hollow
walls (wall areas between studs) or to solid walls (concrete or masonry).
Decide which method better suits your needs. Either method will provide a secure hold for the
mounting bracket.
Marking Screw Locations
1. Tape mounting bracket to wall where heater
will be located. Make sure mounting bracket
is level.

INSTALLATION
CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
WARNING: A qualified service technician must connect heater to gas supply. Follow all local
codes.
IMPORTANT: This appliance requires a 3/8-inch NPT (National Pipe Thread) inlet connection to
the pressure regulator. Never connect the heater to private (non-utility) gas wells, commonly
known as wellhead gas.
WARNING: Do not overtighten gas connections.
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-in. diameter or greater to allow proper
gas volume to heater. If pipe is too small, undue loss of pressure will occur.
CAUTION: Two gas line installations at the same time are prohibited. The access plate to the
switching means shall not be opened while the heater is in operation.
CAUTION: Check your gas line pressure before connecting heater to gas line. Gas line pressure
must be a minimum 6'' WC for NG & 11" WC for LP with a max pressure of 14'' WC for NG & 14"
WC for LP. If gas line pressure is higher, regulator damage could occur.
CAUTION: Never connect heater directly to an LP supply. This heater requires an external
regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator between the heater and gas supply.
CAUTION: Avoid damage to regulator. Hold gas regulator with wrench when connecting into gas
piping and/or fittings.
CAUTION: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to gas (Propane or Natural Gas).
Typical Inlet Pipe Diameters
Use 3/8-inch black iron pipe or greater. Installation must include an equipment shutoff valve, union,
and plugged 1/8-inch NPT tap.
Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook up. NPT tap must be upstream from heater
(see Fig. 20).
IMPORTANT: Install an equipment shutoff valve in an accessible location. The equipment shutoff
valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.
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 heater valves.
16
INSTALLATION
Fig. 20 - Gas Connection
Install sediment trap in supply line as shown
(See Fig. 20). Place sediment trap where it is
within reach for cleaning. Place sediment trap
where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A
sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants.
This keeps them from going into heater controls.
If sediment trap is not installed or is installed
wrong, heater may not run properly.
CHECKING GAS CONNECTIONS
WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections for leaks after installing or servicing. Correct all
leaks immediately.
WARNING: Never use an open flame to check for a leak. Apply a 50/50 mixture of liquid soap and
water to all joints. If bubbles form, there may be a leak. Correct all leaks immediately.
Pressure Testing Gas Supply Piping System
Test Pressures In Excess Of 1/2 PSIG ( 3.5kPa )
The appliance and its appliance main gas valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of ½ psi (3.5 kPa).
Pressure Testing Gas Supply Equal To or less than
1/2 PSIG ( 3.5kPa )
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its equipment shut-off
valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less
than ½ psi (3.5 kPa).
Leak Testing Heater Gas Internal Connections

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
NOTE: Before servicing you will need to remove the front panel of the Fig. 30 - Front Panel Removal
heater. There are 4 Philips head screws, 2 on the left side and 2 on the
right, securing the front panel to the heater (See Fig. 30). Always allow
the unit to cool for at least thirty minutes before attempting to remove the
front panel.
WARNING: Turn off heater, unplug electrical cord and let cool
before servicing.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burner, and circulating air
passageways of heater clean. Inspect these areas of heater before each
use. Have heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person. Heater
may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive
lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.
WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air opening(s) of the
burner(s) clean may result in sooting and propery damage.
CLEANING ODS/PILOT AND BURNER
Use a vacuum cleaner, pressurized air, or a small, soft bristled brush to clean burner ports, orifice
and primary burner. Look into burner opening and ensure that it is clean.
CLEANING BURNER PILOT AIR INLET HOLE
We recommend that you clean the unit every three months or after 2,500 hours of operation. We
also recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot assembly clean and free of dust and dirt.
To clean these parts we recommend using compressed air no greater than 30 PSI. You can use a
vacuum cleaner in the blow position. If using compressed air in a can, please follow the directions
on the can. If you don't follow directions on the can, you could damage the pilot assembly.
CAUTION: Never use a wire, needle, or similar object to clean ODS/pilot. This can damage ODS/ pilot unit.
1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the unit to cool for at least thirty minutes.
2. Remove 4 screws - 2 screws on each side of the front panel.
3. Pull front panel forward.
4. Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner. Also clean the pilot assembly. A yellow tip
on the pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in the pilot assembly. There is a small pilot air inlet hole
about two inches from where the pilot flame comes out of the pilot assembly (see Fig. 26 & 27
on page 20). With the unit off, lightly blow air through the air inlet hole. You may blow through a
drinking straw if air is not available.
5. Replace front panel when completed, using the screws removed.
CLEANING CABINET AIR PASSAGEWAYS
Use a vacuum cleaner or pressurized air to clean.
CLEANING FAN (Select Models)
Carefully use a vacuum cleaner or compressed air to keep fan compartment and blades free of dust
and debris.
NOTE: The fan motor is pre-lubricated for extended bearing life and requires no further lubrication.
