How much orange do you need to observe before writing up a natural gas appliance?

I usually write up orange flames in furnaces, but an HVAC guy told me today that it wasn't a lot and was fine.

Thoughts?

Nomally when there is orange it is because the furnace hasn't been adjusted and "green stickered." I don't know if green stickers exist in other states because the gas company does them here.

Hard thing to measure, we expect the flame to be approximately 80% blue, Most often the unit has not been serviced recently so anything slightly off should not matter as we will let the buyer know that the unit has not been serviced in the last few years and that it should be. Any dirty burners would get taken care of at that moment.
