Installation

Recommendations

Before installing, get in touch with the
Authorized Service Center or a qualified
technician to perform installation.
Any improper gas installation will affect
product safety and will endanger user's life.
Do not install a water heater in the
bedroom, attic, bathroom or in places
where ventilation is poor. The installation
environment must be well-ventilated and
be bigger than 7 m
If the product is installed in a poorly-
ventilated environment, an exhaust fan must
be used. Drill a vent hole and a fresh-air
intake on the wall. The exhaust fan must be
installed above the water heater, and the
fresh-air intake must be below water heater
(Fig. 2).
The vent hole must be to a ventilated
outside environment. Table 1 shows the
area the fresh-air intake must have
according to the heating capacity of the
heater.
The flame window must be at eye level
(approximately 1.55 m – 1.65 m from the
floor, Fig. 3). Keep product away from
flammable materials (Fig. 4).
Do not install any kind of wiring or electrical
equipment above the water heater.
No electronic equipment shall be placed at
a distance smaller than 400 mm from the
heater.
Do not install product under strong windy
area, where the wind may turn off the
flame or cause incomplete combustion.
Install the heater in an environment that is
protected from rain; install a metal "roof"
over the product so water does not run
inside the heater. Make sure not to block
gas outlets.
