I'm planning on remodeling our basement which would involve turning the existing boiler room into two rooms, one of which becoming finished space (home office). I'm concerned about airflow and exhaust considerations for the remaining boiler room. I also want to minimize fumes and odor throughout the basement (ie., in the new home office as well as throughout the rest of the basement).
The house is heated via a oil fired boiler (actually, a rather old one though I'm not planning on replacing it at this point), square footage is approx 2,500 (excluding basement). The current boiler room, which is rather empty, measures 12 feet wide by 25 feet long. It would be halved, so the new boiler room would be 12 feet by 12.5 feet.
An exhaust hood could be installed over the boiler that exits via piping through an outside wall, a fresh air vent/fan could also be installed to supply fresh air, etc. Are these measures necessary or advisable? I'd rather not install vented door(s) between the boiler room and finished areas of the basement. I plan on asking my oil company, but would appreciate any others' thoughts.
