Codes and Changes

 August 1, 2013      Jeff Rosenblum


You may have noticed a few recent changes when placing orders for HVAC related material with Famous Supply. The Ohio Revised Codes have recently changed and there are a few things that you need to be aware of. Here are some brief highlights of the changes.

  • All new air conditioning systems must now be equipped with locking-type tamper-resistant refrigerant caps
  • CO detectors are to be installed on all new fossil fuel furnace installations
  • Condensing units and heat pumps are to be installed on a minimum of 3” high pads
  • Programmable set back thermostats are now required

As always, review the most recent local and state codes to make sure your installations are up to date in order to avoid potential code issues. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact Famous Supply HVAC Technical Support.
