    So, while I'm still under the 2009 IRC in most of PA, about 10% of the some 1270 or so jurisdictions have "opted out" of the ICC codes choosing instead legally to keep some other model bldg. code (usually BOCA around here). So, I have to cross-reference both NFPA 54 NFGC and Ch. 24 of the IRC (residential section of IFGC) plus local ordinances AND the mfrs. listed instructions. Next month a few sections of the 2015 IRC will take effect so I'll have to comply with those where they apply.

    I provide litigation support for losses due to combustion appliances so please consider our warnings. Peace.
    The great majority of my local town halls will tell me "we follow NYS 20xx" or "IPC/IFGC 20xx". The others who dont know or dont answer get the default of what book I have in my truck that my fingers pull out of the box. Yeah, probably hacky, but I know it's WAY better than what is already there.

    Anything referenced by printed instructions will be installed to that code.

    Sometimes not replacing what ain't broke is best
