Thread: CODES ?
11-10-2012, 07:58 AM #1
Does anyone know of where I can find national codes concerning to HVAC? Or is does it just concern state to state to codes? Example: I always thought it was a no no to install a heat run in a garage where combustibles and parked cars are stored that could let carbon monoxide enter into the duct system and easily be transferred into the home. Where can I find this code at? My landlord wants a heat run ran into his garage to prevent his well from freezing up. He does not want to install a garage heater but I think that is his only option. My stepdad which is a old time HVAC guy been out of commission for long time said it was okay to install heat run in garage but I am skeptical.

603.7 Rigid duct penetrations. Duct system penetrations of walls, floors, ceilings and roofs and air transfer openings in such building components shall be protected as required by Section 607. Ducts in a private garage and ducts penetrating the walls or ceilings separating a dwelling from a private garage shall be continuous and constructed of a minimum 26 gage [0.0187 inch (0.4712 mm)] galvanized sheet metal and shall not have openings into the garage. Fire and smoke dampers are not required in such ducts passing through the wall or ceiling separating a dwelling from a private garage except where required by Chapter 7 of the International Building Code.
International Mechanical Code, 2009.
No openings. Even a supply.
The system that heats the garage, heats no other space. Then, essentially, all rules dictating supply/return placement in a garage don't apply."Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."
