Empire direct vent (DV-215) 15000 heater install question

5 posts in this topic

I am in the process of figuring out how to install the heater in my house & have seen a couple of different ways to install the units. At the ice fishing show they had the units "built-in" (manufact ?) with cabinets around while others (ice castle) had a wall hung unit. I saw a picture on a site selling houses that also was built-in. I guess my question is can you build around the unit so close ? Also, most houses I see have the heater opposite the door but I seem to remember a post about locating it on the door side ?

check your owners manual it will list the installation specs as far as distances go

The only references I can find are 1" sides & 12" from top next to "combustible construciton". Some of the installations appear to have zero clearance at sides or top to wood construciton.

I think some people are making cabinets around them to make them harder to steal or to pry off the wall. I have been checking on how close I could build the cabinet and not have problems. It surprizing how cool the top of the heater stays, Its all about personal choises. I like the idea and will be useing that in my next house.

    • I have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
