City Issues PSA Regarding Flood-Damaged Furnaces

September 8, 2017 – The City of Midland has issued a public service announcement to residents regarding the repair of furnaces damaged in the June 2017 flooding event.

The City of Midland has received several calls and questions concerning permits for the replacement or repair of furnaces that were damaged or destroyed during the recent flood event. Some callers have reported that contractors have advised them that repairs to furnaces are not permitted and a new furnace must therefore be installed. To clarify, there is no ordinance or code in place that would prohibit a furnace unit damaged in the June of 2017 flood from being repaired. No permit is required for such repairs.

Should a furnace require replacement, the State of Michigan Building Code does require residents to obtain a permit for that installation. The City encourages residents to contact a licensed contractor to assess their individual units to determine whether a repair or replacement is warranted.

Any questions related to building permits and regulations should be directed to the City Building Department at 989-837-3383.
