Framing clearances for furnance and hot water heater

Local building codes tend to dictate these clearances, ventilation and other requirements. You will need to check in with local authorities regarding permits, codes, and inspections.

Most tend to require that you provide the locations of your furnace, hot water heater, and chimney. Indicate the type of furnace, hot water heater, and chimney type as well as the service side of the furnace. Refer to the manufacturer's specifications for exact guidelines, these dimensions shall be required at the time of submission for the permit.
