Reference M1307.3, Elevation of ignition source.
“Rooms or spaces that are not part of the living space of a dwelling unit and that communicate with a private garage through openings shall be considered to be part of the garage.”
I am sure this means storage closets etc. in the garage but what about utility rooms that are located between the garage and the the rest of the house. I have seen water heaters elevated in some utility rooms that have a door that opens into the garage on one side and a door to the living space of the house on the other side of the room. However, I also see water heaters in the same type of location that are not elevated. Should they all be elevated when the door opens on to the garage or not?
Thanks in advance for any information you may provide on this question.
