71.3 Requirements.

(a) Manufacturers of vent-free gas space heating appliances shall produce shipping carton labels for vent-free gas space heating appliances that prominently and clearly display, in bold type no smaller than 14 point, the following language:

CAUTION: This appliance is a supplemental heat source and should not be the primary heat source. This appliance must be installed and serviced according to the manufacturer's instructions and local and state building codes. Select a model with appropriate heat output using sizing guidelines provided by the manufacturer. Using a heater with greater heat output than recommended may be harmful to your health. As with other fuel burning appliances, local building codes may require installation of a carbon monoxide detector in your home.

Sellers of vent-free gas space heating appliances shall ensure that this label is on the outside of each vent-free gas heating appliance shipping carton and is prominently and clearly displayed, in bold type no smaller than 14 point, on or near each vent-free gas space heating appliance on display at a point-of-sale.

(b) Within four years of the effective date of this regulation, manufacturers of vent-free gas space heating appliances shall produce shipping carton labels for vent-free gas space heating appliances that prominently and clearly display, in bold type no smaller than 14 point, information on the vent-free gas space heating appliance's measured carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide emission rates as a percentage of the carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide emission rate standards referenced in a recognized industry standard for vent-free gas space heating appliances. Sellers of vent-free gas space heating appliances shall ensure that this label is on the outside of each vent-free gas space heating appliance shipping carton and is prominently and clearly displayed, in bold type no smaller than 14 point, on or near each vent-free gas space heating appliance on display at a point-of-sale. The Commissioner of Health must have determined that the methods and procedures used to develop the carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide emission rates for the label represent (i) normal operating conditions for the vent-free gas space heating appliance; (ii) a reliable analytical method; and (iii) an accurate statistical measure of actual emission rates.

(c) Sizing guidelines prepared by manufacturers of vent-free gas space heating appliances shall be provided at the point-of-sale by sellers of vent-free gas space heating appliances. The sizing guidelines shall be easy to understand, concise and include sample calculations illustrating the method used to select a properly-sized vent-free gas space heating appliance.
