How to partition gas furnace in basement?
Posted by R. E. Murray on March 01, 19100 at 13:07:11:
I have a gas-fired furnace unit in my basement. The 'control' side (access to pilot, change filter, etc)
faces the area I wish to partition off from the area where the cars are parked. Since it is
my understanding that it is illegal for the furnace to reside in, or be accessible from a 'living'
area (i.e. bedroom, bathroom, etc), what are my best options? Can I wall it off, leaving enough
clearance on the 'control' side, and access it from the car area? Is there any kind of
airtight access door I could install that would still qualify the furnace as being separated from
the 'living' area? Thanks in advance.
