Default Reznor UDAP 45 is Installed and Inspected

Took a little while, but I got my Reznor UDAP 45 all done. I scratched my head for a while trying to decide how to mount it as there is no attic space above the ceiling to hang the heater with ready-rod.

I deck-screwed 2x4's along the wall 1-1/2" down from the ceiling. Then, I mounted 2x4's with 3/8" lag bolts to the top of the heater. The lag bolts are counter-sunk in the boards so the boards sit flush against the ceiling. The bolts are then held solid with nuts and lock washers against the heater and the boards. I had a buddy help me lift the heater and slide it into place on the top on the 2x4's on the wall. I was able to catch a couple joists in the ceiling to put some deck screws through the diagonal boards. The diagonal boards also have L-plates attached to the wall boards.

I ran the B-vent as per instructions with a thimble sleeve through the wall. Instead of black pipe, I used 1/2" Swagelok stainless tubing and fittings. They are commonly used in the oil and gas industry, which I work in, and are far better than pipe. I got a letter from Swagelok indicating CSA approval, so my inspector had no issues with it. I also used a Fluke pressure calibrator from work to check the inlet and regulator outlet pressures, but no adjustment was needed as per the instructions.

The heater location was close to a receptacle, so I simply made up a cord to plug it in. I also had a spare digital thermostat lying around so I can program all my heat settings.

As a final touch, I removed the Reznor decals and painted the air louvers orange to match the garage. I also filled all the wood screw holes and caulked the seams along the mounting boards.

That was an ingenious mounting solution, and the stainless swagelock gas line is very nice!

Well I really hate to tell you but your drip leg does not include a change of direction as required by NFPA Pamplet 58 "Gas Code". From the photo I can't tell if you installed a noncombustible sleeve where your gas line breaches the wall. Other than than those two items, it appears to be a flawless install. Yes I know I'm just too picky.

I really like the clean look of the swagelok, and with using swagelok all the time at work in our products I am a huge fan of the product.

Although my inspector said that I could not use compression fittings. I don't know if this is true everywhere, just thought it was interesting.

Looks like the same cap that came with my Reznor UDAP 75. I'm waiting on the vent to arrive. I'll post pics when it's all done.
Nice looking install!

Nice job on the mounting, nice clean look. I also like the Swagelok gas line. I too use the stainless pipe and Swage fittings in my job in the Pharmaceutical buisness but my town codes are stringent on the black iron on new installs. Who would think in a little hic town in NH codes would be a PITA but they are there for a reason.

Maybe just the pic but the louvers look far from the same orange as the wall?

Again nice job.
