SUFFICIENT FRESH AIR FOR PROPER COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION OF
FLUE GASES MUST BE SUPPLIED
SUPPLIED INTO THE FURNACE AREA
Improved construction and additional insulation in buildings have
reduced heat loss by reducing air infiltration and escape around
doors and windows. These changes have helped in reducing
heating/cooling costs but have created a problem supplying
combustion and ventilation air for gas fired and other fuel burn-
ing appliances. Appliances that pull air out of the house (clothes
dryers, exhaust fans, fireplaces, etc.) increase the problem by
starving appliances for air.
House depressurization can cause back drafting or improper
combustion of gas-fired appliances, thereby exposing building
occupants to gas combustion products that could include car-
bon monoxide.
If this furnace is to be installed in the same space with other
gas appliances, such as a water heater, ensure there is an
adequate supply of combustion and ventilation air for the other
appliances. Refer to the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas
Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1 or CAN/CSA B149 Installation
Codes or applicable provisions of the local building codes for
determining the combustion air requirements for the appliances.

.
This furnace must use indoor air for combustion. It cannot be
installed as a direct vent (i.e., sealed combustion) furnace.
Most homes will require outside air be supplied to the furnace
area by means of ventilation grilles or ducts connecting directly
to the outdoors or spaces open to the outdoors such as attics
or crawl spaces.

Category I Venting is venting at a non-positive pressure. A
furnace vented as Category I is considered a fan-assisted ap-
pliance and the vent system does not have to be "gas tight."
NOTE: Single stage gas furnaces with induced draft blowers
draw products of combustion through a heat exchanger allow-
ing, in some instances, common venting with natural draft ap-
pliances (i.e. water heaters). All installations must be vented in
accordance with National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1
- latest edition. In Canada, the furnaces must be vented in ac-
cordance with the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA
B149.1 and CAN/CSA B149.2 - latest editions and amendments.
NOTE: Masonry vent kit (MVK-01 and MVK-02) is to only be
used on interior masonry chimneys or qualifying exterior
masonry chimney applications identified in the MVK kit
installation instructions. To ensure safe and reliable operation,
use only the kit listed for your model.

Note: This kit is for use on Amana
33" tall "H" and "S" model furnaces installed in the upfl ow position only.
NOTE: The vertical height of the Category I venting system
must be at least as great as the horizontal length of the venting
system.
