I have an HVAC duct passing through a gas fired water heater closet. I can not find anything against it in the IRC but I have never seen this before. Any thoughts?
It doesn’t sound right. Please post pictures.
Here is a pic. Thank you.
I see similar regularly when the furnace and water heater share the same closet.
Thank you. In this case the furnace is in the attic at the opposite end of the house.
That leads to the question:
Did opening up the wall & ceiling compromise the fire blocking?
Yes it did.
David. Thank you. That was a great help.
Love that kinked flex line on the top of the tank.
Where is this closet? is the WH direct vent type?
