    Here's the Bulletin, for reference.

    I was going to post that, but this is an open forum, and should really not be posted for the public to see.

    I guess the mods can remove it if they feel inclined, I can't delete it myself. I didn't realize that this thread was in an open forum when I posted.

Even if your area does not have applicable code I would not want to be in court defending myself after someone expired due to CO above the ANSI level.

    I think some have mistaken the message. If a Tech. does not cover themselves by getting in writing from the customer acknowlegement of the danger and a release from liability along with the reccommendation that the unit be disabled it would be potentially a very difficult to defend yourself if something bad happens. Where we are located in the code if there is a heat exchanger failure there is the requirement that the heat exchanger be repaired by a certified person or replaced within a 30 day period. The tech. must notify the customer of the issue in writing at the time the problem is identified. For CO there is no similar code but I personally follow the same principle of written customer notification it just makes business sense.

    Well I went in to work and told my boss and co worker that I will never do that again. The customer is buying a new furnace from us but last night around midnight they called me and said there furnace wasn't working and I told them there is nothnig else I could do that it was already a danger with the high CO levels in the vent. I don't think she was happy but I told her it was for her and her families safety.
