Hi, I have a question concerning my small mechanical room that house my propane fed boiler, hot water heater, and a bunch of copper piping leading out to the radiant heating system in the house.
In the winter this space gets VERY hot because of all the copper piping carrying the hot water to the radiant system. I have insulated the pipe as best I can, but it still gets really warm.
This mechanical room is on the same floor as a living area.
What I'm wondering is if it would be OK to run a vent out into the living area to take advantage of the wasted heat in the mechanical room. The boiler is direct vent out the side wall if that makes a difference.
I was thinking I could put a small fan assisted vent by the ceiling and pipe it out, along with a vent in the wall down low to allow for replacement air to come in.
My biggest concern would be any Carbon Monoxide or any other gasses that may the result of propane combustion.
