Furnace Code Compliance in Wheeling, IL

Many homeowners just assume that when the HVAC system in their home was installed, it was done according to code. Unfortunately, there are plenty of misinformed professionals who aren’t clear on what the current codes are in the Wheeling area. You could be out of code without even knowing, which could be illegal and unsafe. If you’re planning to renovate your home in the near future or would like to have a new furnace or air conditioner installed, this is the perfect time to learn more about the HVAC code.

What Does It Mean to Be Out of Code?

Local municipalities all over the United States develop code for work that for an HVAC system, electrical system, or plumbing system of a home. The purpose of this code is to have one set of guidelines that everyone must follow. This makes it easier to have work inspected during construction. Code is also designed to keep structures safe.

When your home or office is out of code, this means that work was not done according to the rules that are currently in place. You don’t need to immediately panic. Codes may have changed recently though your work was done years ago. In this instance, it’s likely that you’re up to code, based on the age of your home or its HVAC system. If new work is to be done, it must be done to the current codes that are in place. This applies to repairs and maintenance as well.
