Please read this entire manual before you install and use your new room heater. Failure to
follow instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury, or even death. Contact
local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection requirements in
your area.
Planning The Installation
We suggest that you have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install your fireplace insert. If you
install the fireplace insert yourself, your authorized dealer should review your installation plans.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this fireplace insert and
notify your insurance company before proceeding with installation.
Preparation for Installation
Check for damage to the exterior of the fireplace insert (dents should be reported, scratches can be
fixed by applying touch up paint).
Check the interior of the firebox (replace cracked firebrick and make sure baffle is in place).
The fireplace insert can be lightened by removing the firebricks and baffle (pg 38) - replace before
