All installation and service of these units should be performed by a qualified installation and service agency, including the use of Modine's installation and service manuals, which are specifically intended for use by a qualified installation and service agency.
If you are purchasing a heater unit that will be installed at an elevation above 2,000 ft., please denote on the order. Modine has changed the process in how they deal with heaters installed at elevations above 2,000'. Modine no longer provides gas orifices to make the adjustment; instead, an adjustment is now made on the unit. For additional information, please see the document titled "High Altitude Kit Instructions" under the Manuals & Resources Tab.
The Installation & Service Manual is located on the inside of the side panel.
NOTE: 100,000–125,000 BTU models do not include mounting brackets. These units feature 4 top threaded holes for mounting with 3/8" threaded rod or 3/8" eye bolts and chain.

The heater is really great and heats my 48'X50' shop in just a half hour. Don't know why I waited so long to put a heater in my shop. It is just wonderful to be comfortable while working.
- So happy!
This is the best investment we have ever made for our workshop. It works great and at a third of the price we had been quoted by our local plumbing and heating guy installed.
