Preface

This is the sixth edition of ANSI Z21.88 - CSA 2.33, Vented gas fireplace heaters. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2009, 2005, 2002, 2000, and 1998.

Scope

1.1
This Standard applies to newly produced vented gas fireplace heaters (see Clause 3, Definitions), hereinafter referred to as appliance(s), constructed entirely of new, unused parts and materials, and having input ratings up to and including 400,000 Btu/hr (117 228 W);

a) for use with natural gas;

b) for use with liquefied petroleum (propane);

c) direct vent appliances for manufactured home (USA only) or mobile home OEM installation convertible for use with natural gas and propane when provision is made for simple conversion from one gas to the other [see Clause 4.1.4a) and (b)];

d) direct vent appliances for manufactured home (USA only) or mobile home aftermarket installation for use with natural gas only or liquefied petroleum (propane) gases only [see Clause 4.1.4b)];

e) direct vent appliances for recreational vehicle installation for use with liquefied petroleum (propane) gases only [see Clause 4.1.4c)];

f) direct vent appliances for recreational vehicle installation only convertible for use with natural gas and liquefied petroleum (propane) gases when provision is made for the simple conversion from one gas to the other [see Clause 4.1.4c)]; and

g) for direct vent appliances for manufactured home (USA only) or mobile home OEM installation for use with liquefied petroleum (propane) gases only [see Clause 4.1.4a)].

1.4
All references to psi throughout this Standard are to be considered gauge pressures, unless otherwise specified.

1.5
Appliances covered by this Standard, except for those installed in recreational vehicles, are those whose efficiencies are regulated in the United States by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 and the National Energy Conservation Policy Act of 1978* or covered in Canada by Clause 8, Items unique to Canada.

* At the time of this printing, the above acts regulate the thermal efficiency (heating capacity) of vented appliances. For information, contact the U.S. Department of Energy, Conservation and Solar Applications, Consumer Products Efficiency Branch, 20 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20545.

1.6
Clause 7, Items unique to the United States, contains provisions that are unique to the United States.

1.7
