Safety Considerations

Adhere to the following warnings and cautions when install-
ing, adjusting, altering, servicing, or operating the furnace.
To ensure proper installation and operation, thoroughly read
this manual for specifics pertaining to the installation and
application of this product.
This furnace is manufactured for use with natural gas. It
may be field converted to operate on L.P. gas by using the
appropriate L.P. conversion kit listed in the PROPANE GAS/
HIGH ALTITUDE INSTALLATIONS section of this manual
Install this furnace only in a location and position as speci-
fied in LOCATION REQUIREMENTS & CONSIDERATIONS sec-
tion and INSTALLATION POSITIONS section of this manual.
Provide adequate combustion and ventilation air to the
furnace as specified in COMBUSTION & VENTILATION AIR
REQUIREMENTS section of this manual.
Combustion products must be discharged to the outdoors.
Connect this furnace to an approved vent system only, as
specified in VENT/FLUE PIPE & COMBUSTION AIR PIPE
section of this manual.
Never test for gas leaks with an open flame. Use a com-
mercially available soap solution made specifically for the
detection of leaks to check all connections, as specified in
GAS SUPPLY AND PIPING section of this manual.
Always install a furnace to operate within the furnace's
intended temperature-rise range with a duct system which
has external static pressure within the allowable range, as
specified on the furnace rating plate and OPERATIONAL
CHECKS section of these instructions.
When a furnace is installed so that supply ducts carry air
circulated by the furnace to areas outside the space con-
taining the furnace, the return air shall also be handled by
duct(s) sealed to the furnace casing and terminating outside
the space containing the furnace.
A gas-fired furnace for installation in a residential garage
must be installed as specified in the LOCATION REQUIRE-
MENTS AND CONSIDERATIONS section of this manual.
This furnace may be used as a construction site heater only
if certain conditions are met. These conditions are listed in
