      1). As a means of exhausting smoke and flue
 gases which are the result of fuel combustion.
      2). The chimney provides" draft" which allows
 oxygen to be continuously introduced into the
 appliance, so that proper combustion is possible.

CHIMNEY MAINTENANCE
CREOSOTE - Formation and Removal
     When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar
and other organic vapors which combine with
expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote
vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney
flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote
residue accumulates on the flue lining. If ignited,
this creosote creates an extremely hot fire which
may ignite surrounding materials resulting in a
building fire.
     The chimney connector and chimney should
be inspected (at least) twice a month during the
heating season to determine if a creosote buildup
has occurred.
     If creosote has accumulated,        it should be
removed. Failure to remove creosote may result
in ignition and may cause a house/building fire.
Creosote may be removed using a chimney brush
or other commonly available materials from your
local hardware retailer.
     Chimney fires burn very hot. If the unit or
chimney connector should glow red, reduce the
fire by closing the inlet air control and immediately
call the fire department.

    This stove has been tested for and must be installed on a floor protector with the ~roJ r ']1 ermal

    Alternate materials may be rated with C-factor (Thermal Conductance) or k- 3ctc (11 ermal
Conductivity) ratings which must be converted to R-value to determine if the alternate ma rie meets
the tested requirements. The following instructions provide the proper information ahd f m as for           1



conversion to R-value.

To determine if alternate materials are acceptable follow this sequence.
1. Convert material specifications to R-value:
   a. R-value given - no conversion necessary
   b. k-factor is given with a required thickness (T) in inches:
        R = 11k x T
   c. C-factor is given: R = lIC
2. Determine the R-value of proposed alternate floor protector:
   a. Use formulas in step 1 above to calculate R-value of proposed materialts).
        b. For multiple layers, add R-values of each layer to determine overall R-value.
3. If the overall R-value of the floor protector system is equal to or greater than thJ flo             p btector
   specifications given, the alternate is acceptable.

Example:
The specs of floor protector material should be 3/4-inch thick material with a k-factor of (       64.
The proposed alternative material is 4" brick with a C-factor of 1.25 over liS-inch mi era         Ibo d
with a k-factor of 0.29.
Step 1: Convert specs to R-value.
        R = 11k x T = 1/0.S4 x 0.75 = 0.893 System must have a R-value of 0.893 = RSPE             s
Step 2: Calculate R-value of individual components
        4" Brick with C-factor = 1.25. R = lIC = 111.25 = O.SO= Rbrick
        liS-inch (0.125") mineral board with k-factor = 0.29. R = 1/0.29 x 0.125 = 0.431           Rn n.brd.
Step 3: Add R-values of components to get total R-value of system
        Rbrick + Rmin.brd = O.SO+ 0.431 = 1.231 = Rsystem
Step 4: Compare Rsystem to Rspecs
       Rsystem = 1.231 is larger than Rspecs of 0.893. System R-value exceed                   t   I>   r ~uired
       specifications and therefore is an acceptable alternative.
