New Yorker CG D Gas Boiler

Manigs Member Posts: 1
I have a New Yorker CG D gas boiler. Installed by a licensed plumber and works great. recently an engineer inspected my house and noted that my base clearance was insufficient. He said I needed 18 inches clearance from the floor at the base of the unit. How is that possible? My unit sits on 4 inch blocks and works fine. Is he correct?

    Is the boiler in your garage? If so, it has to be elevated 18" above floor unless it's in a separate room with a sealed door.

    You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.

    What @Ironman said is correct and is the only reason I would think it would need to be raised. Certainly hope it is not mounted on anything combustable
