    6" fresh air supply for boiler room NYC

    anybody know if the code in NYC calls for two 6" fresh air returns in a small residential boiler room? customer put an addition on his house. now his boiler room is no longer adjacent to an exterior wall. i got the call when his inspector would not sign off on the job. i understand that he will now need a fresh air supply,but two 6"? we normally use 4" in this area (one high,one low), he has a small weil mclain boiler (80k). also the length to an outside wall is appx 15',and will require 0ne 90 degree turn, he says the inspector "mentioned" he might require a blower. i asked him to call the inspector and get specs on exactly what he requires,but he's a little reluctant. probably a job to stay away from, but i was just wondering if anyone encountered the same situation,maybe in other states.
    thanx

    Each area is different. What one area requires has little bearing on the next.
    Call teh inspector, and find out what they want, before you get caught in teh middle.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
