There are numerous cities and states that set building codes. These codes directly affect how you’re allowed to install, operate and maintain an HVAC system. Know the basics of the building codes and if your furnace adheres to the latest regulations.
What Are the Codes?
The Uniform Mechanical Code was developed by the American National Standards Institute and the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials. This system sets national and international standards for HVAC installations, repairs and maintenance.
The codes are updated every three years, and the updates are posted on the developers’ websites. Furnace owners need these codes to determine if they should modify their heating systems. If they’re not up to date, they face fines, liability lawsuits or costly property renovations.
Regular Updates of UMC Codes
Every year, HVAC professionals find errors in the designs of furnaces and in commercial buildings. Each error is corrected and published in a revised UMC edition that is released annually. Each year, there are new codes and regulations that residential and commercial furnace owners should know.
