Alright, here is the question. How many of you report whether or not combustion air for a forced air gas furnace or for a gas water heater is present in a garage?
Okay guys this is not a difficult poll here. A little participation would be nice.
How big is the unit and how big is the garage?
Give location. CYA
There’s nothing that prohibits drawing combustion air from a garage. Many furnaces and water heaters are located in garages, so what are you really asking?
I always list the SOURCE of combustion air for all gas fired furnaces and gas water heaters in every report I write.
Ditto. (Does that make me a Dittohead?)
What is the problem?
Natural draft Gas burning appliances are NOT allowed installed in garages in the city of Chicago.
A sealed burner Cat 4, “properly installed appliances” can be used to heat a garage.
And another thing:
or pyromaniac Cows with lighters or matches are strictly forbidden in garages and barns!!
Does that include those ceiling mounted auxiliary heaters?
