Our review of Chapter 2 will include new and revised descriptions that are important to know. Chapter 3, which addresses general regulations, has had changes made in the areas of labelling and identification, wind-resistance, safety systems, and access requirements, as well as to regulations relating to condensate pumps and disposal.

The focus of Chapter 7 is on combustion air requirements, while Chapter 8 will review the regulations for chimneys and vents. Chapter 9 addresses the changes to requirements for fireplaces and similar appliances, and after that, we’ll skip forward to Chapter 11, where we’ll cover refrigeration topics, including the new regulations under the Clean Air Act and the phaseout of HCFCs.
