Question Question about Furnace in Garage

Hey Guys,

I have a new to me house that I bought back in April - Finally getting around to many of the projects on my honey-do list.

The house had an 26x26 addition installed back in 2002. When they made the addition they added a separate natural gas fired forced hot air furnace/central AC for just the addition.

They installed the furnace in a very small "Closet" (4ft x 5ft). The furnace uses PVC piping for the intake and exhaust venting.

My question is this: Inside the closet, they put insulation on the ceiling, outside walls and the interior walls. Is that insulation necessary?

Thanks!
-Steve

Would the room be exposed to freezing temperatures without insulation?
That furnace has a drainline and should not be exposed to freezing temperatures.
