    Gas Code

    I have been trying to find a regulation pertaining to installing natural draft boilers in an apartment building. My understanding is you can not replace or install Nat. Draft anymore in apartment buildings. I have checked TSSA , Emailed,called, researched with no response. Any help would be great. thanks.

    So I assume Ontario as you said TSSA??? It helps if we know where you are from as regulations are different in different areas.

    With all of the barriers to work that one must pass, such as all of the gas licenses, I would think that such a person would be able to tell you the answer.

    Yes I am in Ontario. I have G#1 license, which in Canada allows us to work on anything,
    Thank you for the info. I didn't even think about the origin.

    So you called your local gas inspector directly?

    In BC, I can call the local inspectors and speak directly to them.

    Nat draft boilers are hard to come by these days. I have condo buildings 5 years old with 1-2 million btuh nat draft boilers in them.
    There is code for residential nat draft boilers in ontario but I see no code issue with high rise residential as long as comvustion/ventilation air requirements are met as per section 8.

    The tssa will get back to you. I usually call my contact for field approvals but there is a guy who handled code questions and interpretation through the customer contact centre.

    This is where I send my question: fuels_technical_services@tssa.org

    If they don’t answer in a couple of days I will email again asking if they received my email and they generally answer right away.

    They will soon forget how long it takes, but they will always remember the quality.
