Location and Installation

NOTE: Before beginning installation, consult proper local authorities regarding local codes governing all such applications and installations. DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE. Your furnace must be placed on a non- combustible floor. Position the furnace as close to the chimney as possible. Air for combustion must be provided into the room where the furnace is located. Allow air free access to the furnace for combustion and ventilation. Garage installs are not recommended due to National Fire Codes. Consult with your local code and insurance company. When installing an indoor furnace, the heat plenum coming off the top of the appliance can only go up or horizontal to connect into the main supply duct. Never run the plenum down as this will create a heat buildup in the furnace causing the blower to short cycle and damage the blower motor and will not be covered under warranty. This is not a down draft furnace and not to be installed as one. If you do not have a basement and the plenum cannot be put in the ceiling, then we recommend our Fire Chief outdoor furnace model FC1900. RECOMMENDATION: Purchase Chimfexâ„¢ Dry Chemical Chimney Fire Extinguisher. These are readily available at most stove shops and hardware stores. Smoke detectors should be installed on all levels of your home. Having a fire extinguisher in the furnace room or area is strongly recommended.
