So at an inspection today the 96kBTU boiler and water heater were located in a closet in the kitchen. Both chimney-vented, behind solid (not louvered) doors, all combustion air from the living space. Even if the doors are removed or louvered, or the appropriate ventilation is provided from the exterior (with sealed doors and self-closing hinges), can these appliances be located in the kitchen?
I’ve been pouring over the codes, but can’t find anything prohibiting the kitchen location. Can someone help me out?
