Gas fires, what should I consider before installing a Rinnai gas fire?

Has the correct model and gas type been supplied for the type of gas at the installation site? The carton and the appliance are clearly labelled showing which model and gas type is included so check before opening.

Is the appliance suitable for the room size that it is being installed into? All Rinnai gas fireplaces are not just beautiful to look at but are also efficient room heaters. Check the product specification literature for recommended maximum rooms that the fireplace will heat and also consider that the turn down rate is not too high to overheat the room once it is warm.

Before starting, check that the way the flue is to be run complies within the maximum allowable for that appliance taking into account bends.
