INSTALLATION
MANTELS
Because of the extreme heat this fireplace emits, the mantel clearances are critical. Combustible mantel clearances from louver are
shown in the diagram below.
Note: A non-combustible mantel may be installed at a lower height if the framing is made of metal studs covered with a noncombustible board.
This drawing is to scale at 1:6 (one inch = 6
inches)
Mantel can be installed anywhere in shaded
area using the above scale for units with the
Flush Front and with the optional Bay Front.
Note: Ensure the paint that is used on
the mantel and the facing is "heat
resistant" or the paint may discolour.
MANTEL LEG CLEARANCES
Combustible mantel leg clearances as per diagram:
Maximum
1-1/2" projection at 3"
minimum clearance.

Regency P48-1 Zero Clearance Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
INSTALLATION
FRAMING & FINISHING
1) Determine the total thickness of facing material (eg. drywall plus
ceramic tiles) to allow the finished surface to be flush with the front
of the unit. Total facing thickness can vary from 1/2" (13mm) to
1-1/4" (32mm) thick.
2) Frame in the enclosure for the unit with framing material. The framed
opening for the assembled kit is 47-1/2" high x 48-1/2" wide x
26-1/4" deep (1207mm H x 1232mm W x 667mm D). See Diagram 1.
Diagram 1
Note: 43" (1092mm) is the minimum height for flex termination
and Simpson Dura-Vent terminations.
3) For exterior walls, insulate the enclosure to the same degree as the
rest of the house, apply vapour barrier and drywall, as per local
installation codes. (Do not insulate the fireplace itself.)
4) The unit does not have to be completely enclosed in a chase. The
clearance on top of the unit from the top standoffs is 0" so
combustible building materials can be laid directly on top of the
standoffs. You must maintain clearances from the vent to combustible materials: See page 7. Combustible materials can be laid against
the side and back standoffs and the stove base.
The HeatWave Duct Kit has different
clearance and framing requirements,
check the HeatWave manual for details.
IMPORTANT
When installing the unit with any vertical venting off the top of the
unit as shown, the minimum framing depth changes accordingly.

INSTALLATION
UNIT ASSEMBLY
PRIOR TO
INSTALLATION
The Top Facing Support, the Side Nailing Strips
and the 2 Top Standoffs must be correctly
positioned and attached to the top before unit
is slipped into position.
Top Standoff Assembly
The top standoffs are shipped in a flat position
and must be folded into shape and attached.
1) Remove the standoffs from the fireplace
top.
2) Take each standoff and bend into the correct shape. Bend up at the bend lines until
the screw holes in the standoff and the prepunched screw holes on the fireplace top
line up.
3) Attach the standoff securely to the top with
2 screws per standoff (on opposite corners).
Top Facing Support and
Side Nailing Strips
Determine the total thickness of facing material
(e.g. drywall plus ceramic tiles) to allow the
finished surface to be flush with the front of the
unit. Total facing thickness can vary from 1/2"
(13mm) to 1-1/4" (32mm) thick.
"C" Screw Position:
For a facing material depth of 1-1/4"
(32mm), the top facing support must be
reversed.
The Top Facing Support & Side Nailing Strips
can be mounted in 3 different positions depending on the thickness of the facing material.
Screw
Position
Facing Material
Depth

B
C*
1/2" / 13mm
7/8" / 22mm
1-1/4" / 32mm
* For "C" screw position the top facing support
is reversed.
1) Mount Top Facing Support using the 3
supplied screws into the three pre-punched
screw holes on the top front of the unit. Use
hole positions A, B, or C depending on your
facing depth.
2) Use the same screw hole position for the
Side Nailing Strips as was used for the Top
Facing Support. Attach each side nailing
strip using 3 screws.
VENTING
INTRODUCTION
The P48-1 uses the "balanced flue" technology Co Axial system. The inner liner vents
products of combustion to the outside while the
outer liner draws outside combustion air into
the combustion chamber thereby eliminating
the need to use heated room air for combustion
and losing warm room air up the chimney.
Note: These flue pipes must not be connected to any other appliance.
The gas appliance and vent system must be
vented directly to the outside of the building,
and never be attached to a chimney serving a
separate solid fuel or gas burning appliance.
Each direct vent gas appliance must use it's
own separate vent system. Common vent
systems are prohibited.

INSTALLATION
HORIZONTAL
INSTALLATIONS
Install the vent system according to the manufacturer's instructions included with the components.
1) Set the unit in its desired location. Check to
determine if wall studs or roof rafters are
in the way when the venting system is
attached. If this is the case, you may want
to adjust the location of the unit. Rough in
the gas preferably on the right side of the
unit and the electrical (junction block is on
the left side) on the left.
2) Direct Vent pipe and fittings are designed
with special twist-lock connections to connect the venting system to the appliance
flue outlet. A twist-lock appliance adaptor
is an available option that must be used in
conjunction with the Simpson Dura-Vent
Direct Vent GS system. Install the adaptor
after the unit is set in its desired location
otherwise the unit will not fit through the
36-5/8" (930mm) high frame opening.
They may be located by examining the
inside of the female ends.
Note: Apply sealant "Mill-Pac" to inner
pipe and high temp silicone sealant to outer pipe on every twistlock joint.
b) Horizontal runs of vent must be supported every 3 feet (0.9meter). Wall
straps are available for this purpose.
5) Mark the wall for a 11" x 11" (279mm x
279mm) square hole. The center of the
square hole should line up with the centerline of the horizontal pipe. Cut and frame the
11 inch (279mm) square hole in the exterior
wall where the vent will be terminated.
If the wall being penetrated is constructed
of non-combustible material, i.e. masonry
block or concrete, a 8" (203mm) diameter
hole is acceptable.
Note:
a) Twist-lock procedure: Four indentations, located on the female ends of
pipes and fittings, are designed to slide
straight onto the male ends of adjacent
pipes and fittings, by orienting the four
pipe indentations so they match and
slide in to the four entry slots on the
male ends. (Diagram 1) Push the pipe
sections completely together, then
twist-lock one section clockwise approximately one-quarter turn, until the
two sections are fully locked. The female locking lugs will not be visible from
the outside, on the Black Pipe or fittings.
Diagram 1
7) Before connecting the horizontal run of
vent pipe to the vent termination, slide the
Wall Thimble (Part # 1247) over the vent
pipe.
Diagram 2
Note:
a) The horizontal run of vent must be level,
or have a 1/4 inch rise for every 1 foot
of run towards the termination. Never
allow the vent to run downward. This
could cause high temperatures and
may present the possibility of a fire.
b) The location of the horizontal vent termination on an exterior wall must meet
all local and national building codes, and
must not be blocked or obstructed. For
External Vent Terminal Locations, see
diagram on page 11.
6) The arrow on the vent cap should be
pointing up. Insure that the 1-1/4"(32mm)
clearances to combustible materials are
maintained (Diagram 5). Install the termination cap.
Note: If installing termination on a siding
covered wall, a vinyl siding standoff or furring strips must be used
to ensure that the termination is
not recessed into the siding.
20
The four wood screws provided should be
replaced with appropriate fasteners for
stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of
sidings.
8) Slide the appliance and vent assembly towards the wall carefully inserting the vent
pipe into the vent cap assembly. It is important that the vent pipe extends into the vent
cap sufficient distance so as to result in a
minimum pipe overlap of 1-1/4 inches
(32mm). Secure the connection between
the vent pipe and the vent cap by attaching
the two sheet metal strips extending from
the vent cap assembly into the outer wall of
the vent pipe. Use the two sheet metal
screws provided to connect the strips to
the pipe section. See Diagram 6.
3) Put a bead of silicone inside the outer
section of the adapter and a bead of Stove
Mate on the inner collar. Slip the adapter
over the existing inner and outer flue collar
and fasten to the outer collar only with the
3 supplied screws (drilling pilot holes will
make this easier). Level the fireplace and
fasten it to the framing using nails or screws
through the nailing strips.
4) Assemble the desired combination of pipe
and elbows to the appliance adaptor and
twist-lock for a solid connection.

9) Install wall thimble in the center of the 11"
(279mm) square and attach with wood
screws (Diagram 7).
Diagram 7
Regency P48-1 Zero Clearance Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
INSTALLATION
VERTICAL
TERMINATION
1) Maintain the 1-1/4"(32mm)
clearances (air spaces) to
combustibles when passing through ceilings, walls,
roofs, enclosures, attic rafter, or other nearby combustible surfaces. Do not pack air
spaces with insulation.
Check pages 16-17 for the
maximum vertical rise of the
venting system and the maximum horizontal offset limitations.
Diagram 1
2) Set the gas appliance in its
desired location. Drop
a plumb bob down
from the ceiling to the
position of the appliance flue exit, and
mark the location
where the vent will
penetrate the ceiling. Drill a small hole at his
point. Next, drop a plumb bob from the roof
to the hole previously drilled in the ceiling,
and mark the spot where the vent will
penetrate the roof. Determine if ceiling joists,
roof rafters or other framing will
obstruct the venting system. You
may wish to relocate the appliance
or to offset, as
shown in Diagram
2 to avoid cutting
load bearing members.
Diagram 2
3) A Firestop spacer must be installed in the
floor or ceiling of every level. To install the
Firestop spacer in a flat ceiling or wall, cut
a 11 inch (279mm) square hole. Frame the
hole as shown in Diagram 3 and install the
firestop.
4) Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and
elbows. Ensure that all pipes and elbow
connections are in the fully twist-locked
position and sealed.
Note:
Apply sealant "Mill-Pac" to inner pipe and
high temp silicone sealant to outer pipe
on every twist-lock joint.
Diagram 5
Roof Pitch
5) Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small
drilled hole placed in the roof in Step 2. The
hole should be of sufficient size to meet the
minimum requirements for clearance to
combustibles of 1-1/4"(32mm). Slip the
flashing under the shingles (shingles should
overlap half the flashing) as per Diagram 4.

A poor draft, or down drafting can result from
high wind conditions near big trees or adjoining roof lines, in these cases, increasing the
vent height may solve the problem.
7) Ensure vent is vertical and secure the base
of the flashing to the roof with roofing rails,
slide storm collar over the pipe section and
seal with a mastic.
8) Install the vertical termination cap by twistlocking it.
Diagram 4: The upper half of the flashing is
installed under the roofing material and not
nailed down until the chimney is installed.
This allows for small adjustments.
Note: Any closets or storage spaces,
which the vent passes through
must be enclosed.
Offset Chart
6) Continue to assemble pipe lengths.
Note: If an offset is necessary in the attic
to avoid obstructions, it is important to support the vent pipe every
3 feet (0.9 meter), to avoid excessive stress on the elbows, and
possible separation. Wall straps
are available for this purpose
(Diagram 2).
Galvanized pipe is desirable above the roofline due to its higher corrosion resistance.
Continue to add pipe sections through the
flashing until the height of the vent cap meets
the minimum height requirements specified in
Diagram 5 or local codes. Note that for steep
roof pitches, the vertical height must be increased.

PROCEDURES
for Regency Direct Vent
System (Flex)
1) Locate the unit in the framing, rough in the
gas (preferably on the right side of the unit)
and the electrical (Junction block is on the
left side) on the left. Locate the centerline
of the termination and mark wall accordingly. Cut a 11"(279mm) hole in the wall (inside
dimension).
Note: A top clearance of 2-1/2"(64mm)
and side & bottom clearance of
1-1/2"(38mm) must be maintained
except that only a 1" (25mm) clearance is needed at the termination
end. We recommend framing a
11"(279mm) x 11"(279mm) (inside
dimensions) hole to give structural rigidity for mounting the termination.
4) Separate the 2 halves of the wall thimble
and securely fasten the one with the tabs
to the outside wall making sure that the tabs
are on top and bottom. Fasten the other
thimble half to the inside wall. The thimble
halves slip inside each other and can be
adjusted for 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 walls. The liners
must slip over the collars a minimum
of 1-3/8".
IMPORTANT: Do not locate termination
hood where excessive snow or ice buildup may occur. Be sure to check vent
termination area after snow falls, and clear
to prevent accidental blockage of venting
system. When using snow blowers, make
sure snow is not directed towards vent
termination area.
5) Slip the assembled liner and termination
assembly through the thimble making sure
the termination cap faces up (there are
markings on the cap that show which way
is up). This will position the termination cap
with proper down slope for draining water.
Fasten the cap to the outer wall with the 4
supplied screws.
ASTROCAP XL
DIMENSIONS
6) Pull the centre 5"(127mm) liner and outer
8"(203mm) liner out enough to slip over the
flue collars of the fireplace. (You may wish
to cut the liner shorter to make it more
workable.) Do not bend liner more than 90o.
7) Apply Mill Pac over the fireplace inner collar
and slip the 5"(127mm) liner down over it
and attach with 3 supplied screws.
Note: To make the
installation more
aesthetically pleasing, we recommend framing out a
square to mount
the terminal to.
8) Do the same with the 8"(203mm) liner.
9) Apply a bead of silicone between the thimble and termination and around the outer
edge of the terminal at the wall in order to
keep the water out.
Note: If installing termination on a siding
covered wall, furring strips must
be used to ensure that the termination is not recessed into the
siding.
2) Level the fireplace and fasten it to the
framing using nails or screws through the
nailing strips.
3) Assemble the vent assembly by applying
Mill Pac to the 5"(127mm) inner collar of the
termination and slipping the 5"(127mm) liner
over it at least 1-3/8" (35mm). Fasten with
the 3 screws (drilling pilot holes will make
this easier). Apply Mill Pac or high temperature silicone to the 8"(203mm) flex pipe and
slip it over the 8" outer collar of the vent
terminal at least 1-3/8"(35mm) and fasten
with the 3 screws.
NOTE: Horizontal sections must be supported at intervals not exceeding 3
feet (0.9 meter). (Flame picture and
performance will be affected by
sags in the liner).

When using copper or flex connectors use only
approved fittings. Always provide a union so
that gas lines can be easily disconnected for
servicing. Flare nuts for copper lines and flex
connectors are usually considered to meet this
requirement.
Note: To properly check gas pressure,
both inlet and manifold pressures
should be checked using the valve
pressure ports on the valve.
Important: Always check for gas leaks
with a soap and water solution or gas
leak detector. Do not use open flame for
leak testing.

FIRST FIRE
LIGHTING
PROCEDURE
IMPORTANT
To ignite or reignite the pilot,
you must first release the
tension springs below the door.
Only when the pilot holds, without pressure
being applied to the control knob, reapply the
tension springs to the door. The unit must
not be operated with the tension springs
unattached.
IMPORTANT Gas cock knob cannot be
turned from "PILOT" to "OFF" unless it is
partially depressed.
During the first few fires, a white film
may develop on the glass front as part of
the curing process. The glass should be
cleaned after the unit has cooled down
or the film will bake on and become very
difficult to remove. Use a non-abrasive
cleaner and DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN
THE GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT.
AERATION
ADJUSTMENT
The air shutter can be adjusted by moving the
adjusting wire up or down. The wire is accessed through the bottom louver opening.
Open the air shutter for a blue flame or close for
a more yellow flame. The burner aeration is
factory set but may need adjusting due to either
the local gas supply or altitude.
Minimum Air Shutter Opening:
3/16"
Natural Gas
Fully Open
Propane
CAUTION: Carbon will be produced if air
shutter is closed too much.
Note: Any damage due to carboning resulting from improperly setting the
aeration controls is NOT covered
under warranty.
DO NOT BURN THE APPLIANCE
WITHOUT THE GLASS FRONT IN
PLACE.
The first fire in your stove is part of the paint
curing process. To ensure that the paint is
properly cured, it is recommended that you
burn your fireplace for at least four (4) hours
the first time before you use it with the fan on.
When first operated, the unit will release an
odour caused by the curing of the paint, the
burning off of any oils remaining from manufacturing. Smoke detectors in the house may
go off at this time. Open a few windows to
ventilate the room for a couple of hours.
Adjustment Wire - Pull down to open or
push up to close aeration cap.
Note: When the glass is cold and the
appliance is lit, it may cause condensation and fog the glass. This
condensation is normal and will
disappear in a few minutes as the
glass heats up.
Note: Aeration Adjustment should only
be performed by an authorized
Regency Installer at the time of
installation or service.
Closed - Tall yellow
Open - Short Blue
1) Turn burner OFF using "ON/OFF" switch.
2) Turn gas control knob so indicator points to
"OFF" position and allow 5 minutes for any
gas in the combustion chamber to escape.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
NORMAL OPERATING
SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
Copy of the Lighting Plate Instructions
It is possible that you will hear some sounds
from your gas appliance. This is perfectly
normal due to the fact that there are various
gauges and types of steel used within your
appliance. Listed below are some examples. All
are normal operating sounds and should
not be considered as defects in your appliance.
Blower:
Regency gas appliances use high tech blowers to push heated air farther into the room. It
is not unusual for the fan to make a "whirring"
sound when ON. This sound will increase or
decrease in volume depending on the speed
setting of your fan speed control.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under the
burner tube and logs and is made of a different
gauge material from the rest of the firebox and
body. Therefore, the varying thicknesses of
steel will expand and contract at slightly different rates which can cause "ticking" and "cracking" sounds. You should also be aware that as
there are temperature changes within the unit
these sounds will likely re-occur. Again, this is
normal for steel fireboxes.
Blower Thermodisc:
When this thermally activated switch turns ON
it will create a small "clicking" sound. This is the
switch contacts closing and is normal.
Pilot Flame:
While the pilot flame is on it can make a very
slight "whisper" sound.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a
dull clicking sound may be audible, this is normal
operation of a gas regulator or valve.
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will
expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some "cracking" and "ticking" sounds will be
heard throughout the cycling process.

INSTRUCTIONS
2) Remove the Cap, and shine a flashlight
down the Vent. Remove any bird nests, or
other foreign material.
7) Drop the thermocouple or thermopile down
through the extrusion and pull it out of the
unit.
1) Always turn off the gas valve before
cleaning. For relighting, refer to lighting
instructions. Keep the burner and control
compartment clean by brushing and vacuuming at least once a year. When cleaning
the logs, use a soft clean paint brush as the
logs are fragile and easily damaged.
3) Check for evidences of excessive condensation, such as water droplets forming
in the inner liner, and subsequently dripping
out the joints, Continuous condensation
can cause corrosion of caps, pipe, and
fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too many elbows, and
exterior portions of the system being exposed to cold weather.
8) Reinstall the new ones in reverse order.
2) Clean appliance and door with a damp cloth
(never when unit is hot). Never use an
abrasive cleaner. The glass should be
cleaned with a gas fireplace glass cleaner.
The glass should be cleaned when it
starts looking cloudy.
3) The heater is finished in a heat resistant
paint and should only be refinished with
heat resistant paint. Regency uses StoveBright Paint - Metallic Black #6309.
4) Make a periodic check of burner for proper
position and condition. Visually check the
flame of the burner periodically, making
sure the flames are steady; not lifting or
floating. If there is a problem, call a qualified
service person.
5) The appliance and venting system must be
inspected before use, and at least annually, by a qualified field service person, to
ensure that the flow of combustion and
ventilation air is not obstructed.
Note: Never operate the appliance without the glass properly secured in
place.
6) Do not use this appliance if any part has
been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance and to replace nay part of the
control system and any gas control which
has been under water.
7) In the event this appliance has been serviced check that the vent-air system has
been properly resealed & reinstalled in
accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
8) Verify operation after servicing.
General Vent Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system
semiannually. Recommended areas to inspect
as follows:
1) Check the Venting System for corrosion in
areas that are exposed to the elements.
These will appear as rust spots or streaks,
and in extreme cases, holes. These components should be replaced immediately.
4) Inspect joints, to verify that no pipe sections
or fittings have been disturbed, and consequently loosened. Also check mechanical
supports such as Wall Straps, or plumbers'
tape for rigidity.
LOG REPLACEMENT
The unit should never be used with broken logs.
Turn off the gas valve and allow the unit to cool
before opening door and carefully remove the
logs. (The pilot light generates enough heat to
burn someone.) If for any reason a log should
need replacement, you must use the proper
replacement log. The position of these logs
must be as shown in the diagrams under Log
Installation.
GLASS GASKET
If the glass gasket requires replacement use
a tadpole glass gasket (Part # 936-155).
GOLD-PLATED
LOUVERS
The 24 carat gold-plated finish on the louvers
and trim requires little maintenance, and need
only be cleaned with a damp cloth.
DO NOT use abrasive materials or chemical
cleaners, as they may harm the finish and void
the warranty.
Clean any fingerprints off before turning
the unit on.
Note: Improper positioning of logs may
create carbon build-up and will
severely alter the unit's performance which is not covered under
warranty.
THERMOPILE/
THERMOCOUPLE
1) Open the Bottom Louvers or Grills. Remove
the Top Louver or Grill.
2) Open and remove door.
3) Remove log set and embers.
4) Remove grate and burner.
5) Disconnect thermocouple by loosening nut
from the valve with a 9mm wrench. Disconnect thermopile by loosening 2 screws
marked TP on the valve.
6) Remove 2 screws from the pilot assembly
and pull up far enough to be able to loosen
the thermocouple or thermopile with a 7/16"
wrench. NOTE: the pilot line is very fragile,
use caution when pulling it up.
