I don't know! There is not much info in your post.
Who replaced the furnace. Where you live - in own house or apartment?

If you are inside a city or someplace with building codes, the government agency will inspect to verify that the furnace was properly installed.
Most places get pretty testy regarding natural gas leaks. Just because someone is in the HVAC business does not mean the furnace was installed correctly. Things get red tagged all the time.

This.

City of Houston requires inspections. They will either red tag or green tag it. Other municipalities might require the same thing.
