Although heating boilers are designed and constructed safely under Section IV, the rules of Section VI are recommended for their care and operation. These rules are non-mandatory, unless adopted into law, guidelines for the safe and efficient operation of steam-heating boilers, hot-water-supply boilers, and hot-water-heating boilers after installation (however, they are not applicable to potable water heaters). It should be noted that this chapter generally follows the format of Section VI; where additional information is considered beneficial, it has been added.
