I'm looking to install a direct vent fireplace in my living room. Has anyone ever installed one and if so did you run a new/separate line to hook up the electrical? The unit itself has a junction box to be hooked up to 120VAC. The area I am putting it in already has electrical there (outlet) so I'm wondering if I can use that to hook it up?
The install manual reads this:
- Wire the appliance junction box to 110-120 VAC. This is
required for proper operation of the appliance.
- Low voltage and 110-120 VAC voltage cannot be shared
within the same wall box.
