Code Check HVAC is a condensed
field guide to the most commonly cited code violations and
installation issues with residential mechanical systems. It is not a
formal interpretation; the ones who decide what is “to code” are the
authorities administering the building department in your area.
Consult with them before beginning any construction project.
There are essentially two families of mechanical codes at this time.
One is the International Codes,
and in particular the International
Residential Code, and the other is the alliance of the Uniform
codes and the NFPA codes. We have utilized several of these codes to
emphasize their similarities and the common safety principles at the
root of all these codes. Check with your building department to
determine the codes and editions applicable in your area.
