INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS

CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING HAZARD
Special Warning for Installation of Furnace or Air Handling
Units in Enclosed Areas such as Garages, Utility Rooms or
Goodman 38
Parking Areas.
Carbon monoxide producing devices (such as an
automobile, space heater, gas water heater, etc.) should
not be operated in enclosed areas such as unventilated
garages, utility rooms or parking areas because of the
danger of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning resulting from
the exhaust emissions. If a furnace or air handler is
installed in an enclosed area such as a garage, utility room
or parking area and a carbon monoxide producing device is
operated therein, there must be adequate, direct outside
ventilation.
This ventilation is necessary to avoid the danger of CO
poisoning which can occur if a carbon monoxide producing
device continues to operate in the enclosed area. Carbon
monoxide emissions can be (re)circulated throughout the
structure if the furnace or air handler is operating in any
mode.
CO can cause serious illness including permanent brain
damage or death.
IMPORTANT: The United States Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) has issued various regulations regarding the
introduction and disposal of refrigerants in this unit. Failure to
follow these regulations may harm the environment and can lead
to the imposition of substantial fines. These regulations may vary
by jurisdiction. A certified technician must perform the installation
and service of this product. Should questions arise, contact your
local EPA office.
This product is designed and manufactured to permit installation
in accordance with national codes. It is the installer's
responsibility to install this unit in accordance with national codes
and/or prevailing local codes and regulations.
