These were installed at a tennis club to take the place of an aging Armstrong beheamoth that took up 4 times the space.

Aw Dude, where is the combustion air?? Did you check to see you had enough indoor building volume to support good clean combustion?

depends if its a confined area or not. So many cubic feet of free space will give you enough combustion air.

Drip leg on the incoming though it's propane so not required. That cover is covering where a hot air duct ran into the office. They wanted it moved to the ceiling.

It's at an indoor tennis court. The building is probably 400 x 600 with 20' ceiling. Plenty of combustion air.

The size of the building has nothing to do with it. How large of a room is the unit in and does that room have enough free air for combustion coming into it.

As for a drip leg, it is required by the National Fuel Gas Code of which propane has to comply, it isn't just for Natural Gas.

You can't have a flex enter a cabinet in my area either, it has to be hard pipe at that point.

I can measure and cut with the best of them. I just don't have room in the truck after loading up for a full installation.

Nor do these old bone take kindly to the weight of the pipe stand:wheelchair:

Doesn't matter if they are AGA approved or not. They aren't allowed to enter through a cabinet in any places I work . I have had inspectors bust my chops about using them as a vibration stop on 90 pluses like the Lennox Pulse. I had an inspector ask me if I thought anyone was gonna pull out the furnace and sweep behind it.

Now there is the rub. Going thru the cabinet of the furnace is not a concern here. Sometime we put a section of garden hose as a sleeve over the portion penetrates the cabinet if there is a possible metal to metal contact.


Works good than heat.

Gas flex not allowed here either.
