Ducts connected to the furnace shall have removable access panels
on both the upstream and downstream sides of the furnace. These
openings shall be accessible when the furnace is installed and
shall be sized to allow the observation of smoke or reflected

light inside the casing to indicate the presence of leaks in the
heat exchanger. The covers for the openings shall be attached in
such manner as to prevent leaks.

The furnace must not be operated in the presence of chlorinated
vapours. When such vapours mix with products of combustion, highly
corrosive compounds result, which will result in the premature
failure of the heat exchanger and other components. In such an

event the warranty is void.
