I am scheduled to get a new gas furnace installed in my house next week. The furnace will be moved from its original location. My neighbor, who has done extensive remodeling lately, told me that the building codes relating to furnace installations changed in California on October 1st. She says that an inspector told her to not get a permit after October 1 because the new codes are so difficult to meet it would cost a fortune to bring the new furnace installation up to code. We are having a reputable company do the installation. I asked their salesman about the new codes and he seemed unconcerned. I am afraid that we will run into lots of unexpected expenses during the installation.
Does anyone know anything about the new codes in California and how difficult it will be to pass inspection??? BTW, our house is 40 years old.
Thanks for any info!!!
