High Altitude Conversion

(if required)
IMPORTANT:
This furnace is approved for operation at altitudes from 0 to
2,000 ft above sea level without any required modifications.
For installations above 2,000 ft, the furnace input rate is to be
reduced per the requirements of the National Fuel Gas Code
(ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, latest edition), at the rate of 4 percent
for each 1,000 ft above sea level. Do not adjust manifold
pressure. An orifice change is required to adjust input rate.
For the correct orifice size, refer to the table following.
At altitudes above 4,500 ft, a High Altitude Kit is required. To
order the correct kit see "Accessories."
This furnace is not recommended for installation above
10,000 ft.
It is recommended that conversion for high altitude be
completed prior to making final gas connections.
