Furnace Replacement

Unit owners wanting to replace a furnace must notify and receive prior approval from the Board of Managers. This will avoid installation problems and possible extra cost to the unit owner. Some high efficiency furnaces can't be vented into our existing chimneys and require special exhaust pipes through the walls. These exhaust pipes can be potentially dangerous as well as unsightly. Medium efficiency furnaces require a certain volume of air space in the basement area for safe operation. Outside intake vents are not allowed. Unit owners must make the changes in the area of the furnace.

Nothing may be installed on the outside of the buildings without prior approval of the Board of Managers. Chimney liners also require prior approval of the Board of managers.Inform the contractor of these limitations. The unit owner will be responsible for the removal of any unapproved addition and for any expense this entails.
