IMPORTANT NOTE: The furnace, as shipped, requires no
change to run between 0 - 5500 feet. Do not attempt to increase
the firing rate by changing orifices or increasing the manifold
pressure below 5500 feet. This can cause poor combustion
and equipment failure.
High altitude installations above 5500 feet may require both a
pressure switch and an orifice change. These changes are
necessary to compensate for the natural reduction in the den-
sity of both the gas fuel and the combustion air at higher alti-
tude.
For installations above 5500 feet, please refer to your distribu-
tor for required kit(s).
Contact the distributor for a tabular listing of appropriate
manufacturer's kits for propane gas and/or high altitude instal-
lations. The indicated kits must be used to insure safe and
proper furnace operation. All conversions must be performed
by a qualified installer, or service agency.

This unit is configured for natural gas. The appropriate
manufacturer's propane gas conversion kit, must be applied for
propane gas installations. Refer to the "Propane Gas and/or
High Altitude Installations" section for details.
If converting to LP gas, it is recommended that an LPLP0* kit
also be installed. The use of this kit will prevent the furnace
from firing when the LP gas supply pressure is too low to sup-
port proper combustion.

When sizing a trunk line, be sure to include all appliances
which will operate simultaneously.
The gas piping supplying the furnace must be properly sized
based on the gas flow required, specific gravity of the gas, and
length of the run. The gas line installation must comply with
local codes, or in their absence, with the latest edition of the
National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1.

To connect the furnace to the building's gas piping, the installer
must supply a ground joint union, drip leg, manual shutoff valve,
and line and fittings to connect to gas valve. In some cases,
the installer may also need to supply a transition piece from 1/
2" pipe to a larger pipe size.
The following stipulations apply when connecting gas piping.
Use black iron or steel pipe and fittings for the building
piping.
