71 year old home with basement and crawlspace configuration.
Gas Water heater and gas Furnace are in the baseement portion (approximatelty 10’ x 10’ x 5’ high)
The stairway door from the basement opens to the garage (see photo). It is a single panel wood door (not rated for 20 minutes) and the door frame is missing trim on the inside of the garage.
The wall between the basement and crawl/basement is fully finished with no voids except around the door frame.
**Should the furnace and water heater treated as if they were in the garage and be raised off the basement floor?
