I just had a new furnace a/c system installed at my house by a local contractor. The inspector came and in a short amount of time gave it the 'ok'.
I have always wanted to know where the inspector gets their 'code information' from. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada so I did some looking and found an 'Alberta Building Code' binder available at our local library. I went down to the library and read up the section on furnaces, but it was really vague I did not see any exact dimensions (i.e. 10" from a wall, 6" vent required, etc) that I was expecting. Was I looking the wrong section, or can someone tell me where this information is? I think as a homeowner this would be a good reference for whenever I get work done on my home by a contractor (having another set of eyes look over everything along with the inspector couldn't do no harm).
Thanks in advance!
