What can you tell me about Fuel Burning Equipment Installations?

The installation of any fuel burning equipment requires a permit from both the Fire Marshal’s Office and the Building Department. Once a permit is submitted, a review of the equipment and piping to be installed is conducted to ensure it is being installed in compliance with the appropriate codes, as well is the equipment’s listing. Once the review of the plans is completed, a field inspection is then conducted to ensure all equipment has been installed in accordance with the plans submitted. During the inspection, the Fire Marshal or his Deputy will check for proper clearance from ignitions sources, proper product containment (if required), and many other requirements, which are dependant upon the regulations that apply.
