FURNACE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Furnace must be installed and serviced by a
qualified person.
Examples of a qualified person include:
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel.
Read and follow all instructions provided for
installation, adjustment, service, alteration, or
maintenance.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
explosion, fire, or carbon monoxide poisoning.

Inspect Shipment

WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people and mechanical equipment to
lift, move and install furnace.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
This furnace is shipped in one package, completely assembled
and wired. The indoor thermostat and accessories are shipped in
a separate carton when ordered.
1. Check the furnace rating plate to confirm specifications are
as ordered.
2. Upon receipt of equipment, inspect it for possible shipping
damage. Be sure to examine the furnace inside the carton if
the carton is damaged.
If damage is found, it should be noted on the carrier's freight bill.
Damage claims should be filed with the carrier immediately.
Claims of shortages should be filed with the seller within 5 days.
NOTE: If any damages are discovered and reported to the carrier,
do not install the furnace as your claim may be denied.

Place Furnace in Final Location

WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people and mechanical equipment to
lift, move and install furnace.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
IMPORTANT: Place the furnace in the final location and position
it in the proper orientation to the house so that connecting ducts,
electrical and gas supplies is easily done. Hoisting may be
required.
Hoisting
An accessory lift kit must be purchased to hoist the furnace. See
"Accessories." Attach the rigging to the lifting brackets on each
corner.
NOTE: All access panels must be secured in place before
hoisting.
The furnace should be hoisted with 2 lifting slings. Attach the
slings to rigging shackles that have been hooked through holes in
the lifting brackets.
Place 2 spreaders on top of the furnace to protect the furnace
from damage from the pressure exerted by the slings. Make sure
that all equipment is rated to handle at least 750 lbs and that the
slings will not allow the furnace to shift. See "Typical Sling
Configuration."
