The fiberglass will not catch fire. There is a sfer barrier built into the wall heaters. When you install a wall heater you basically just cut the wall open and throw the unit in with the flue and gas and away you go. If you can to second guess take some of the insillation and take a match or a lighter and hold it in your hand and light the fiberglass, you will see that it wont burn even with direct flame on it. You are 100 percent safe

When installing this heater in the wall ,how close can any insulation be to the heater ?


If you're talking about fiberglass insulation in the walls, you should be able to just have it right up against the heater. If you have the heater instructions, check on "clearances" page and make sure from the manufacturer how close combustibles are supposed to be to the unit. These units don't get real hot, so they are generally not dangerous.

The vent pipe CAN NOT touch the wall stud. You can cut back the fiberglass insulation, but it must be a minimum of 6" away from the vent pipe on all sides.

Cold air leaks in around the unit while it is not running. How can I insulate the air intake so that this does not happen?


Is this unit tight against the wall?
Can it be pulled away from the wall, without too much difficulty?
You need to be sure the leak is outside of the flue pipe going thru the wall to the outside.--
Or is it leaking in thru the inside?

If the leakage is due to a gap between the flue pipe and the hole thru the wall, then attention needs to be given to the flashing, and the air tight seal at the outside of the penetration...
Was a metal collar installed-- TIGHTLY against the flue pipe?
How was the needed air space (for fire prevention) made between the HOT flue pipe, and the framing materials?-- Then outside of that, how was the gap insulated?- (Non burnable-- like fiberglass can be used-- but it all depends upon the outer and then inner METAL seal rings being tight.)

Tell us more about where you are feeling the drafts..

Dayton Furnace - Pilot Light Goes Out but Fan keeps running?


Pilot lighted furnaces have a thermocouple made from disasimilar metals that when heated create electricity to actuate a relay that alows the gas to flow to the furnace.

When the thermocouple gets coated with carbon from the pilot lights constant burning it acts as an insulator and keeps the thermocouple from getting enough heat to generate electricity, a very good safety factor.

What you have to do is locate the thermocouple it should be located over the pilot light, you will see a gray substance around the thermocouple it will be hard like cement, take a knife and scrape away as much of the gray material as possible then sand the themocouple with a medium sandpaper until it shines, use one of you wifes emery boards, this should solve your problem.

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater Under Electrical Recepticle


Hello,
I believe you interpretation of the code is a bit skewed in that the fundamental concern is to not route power cords over a heat source which might cause the insulation on that wire to exceed its rated operating temp and fail. The heaters themselves have shrowds over them so there are no exposed surfaces hot enough to melt wire insulation and when you think about it ..2000 watts disipated over a long baseboard section is not that hot. If I were you, I would go ahead and install them and not worry about the warning.. The warning also removes any liability from the heater manufacturer in the event something happens.. Common sense would dictate that you wouldn't intentionally drape power cords all over the heaters... Just use common sense and not worry about it..
Regards,
Rick

High Altitude Electric Heaters


I have never heard of altitude effecting the electric. Watts amps and volts are different than burning a gas, like propane. The high altitude has less oxygen thus requiring the combustion to be effected. If your wires are over heating when you use maximum wattage (amps) you need to install larger wire with the correct size breaker. Look up ohms law. Its a basic electrical formula and will help you get this right.
