certification for low-pressure boilers (NYC)
I'm the de facto manager for a 24-unit coop building in Brooklyn. One of our residents heard that anyone touching the boiler (the super, me) should have a certificate to operate a boiler, given by New York City. I'm wondering if this is true.
Our boiler is a Federal FST-40 running on #2 heating oil, controlled by a Heat Timer EPU-CH panel, running below 2 lbs. of pressure, single-pipe steam. I see that boilers that aren't fully automatic require a certificate to operate
. Our Heat Timer classifies ours as fully automatic, no? Does anyone know if this kind of certificate is required in NYC?
