If a cold air plennum is drawing air from the same room as the water heater is in, without a cold air feed from the outside, should I have been aware that this would cause problems? It does have a cold air return entering the room but it is not hooked up to the cold air plennum. During the testing I was checking for CO and there was no evidence of CO in the house when the water heater and furnace was on.
This is a 1998 heater.
According to an HVAC specialist, it is not up to code, should I have been aware of the code violation?
It was installed in the home this way and now the client (I did the inspection in June) is saying it is my fault and I need to pay for the updates to the ductwork ,etc.
