This vent (1985) should be in an enclosure to protect it from damage and burns. Would you recommend that an enclosure be installed (with an access door), or just say it's supposed to be done that way?

I realize the WH and AC air handler should have leak protection.

Why would it be any worse than having a water heater there with the B-vent exposed above it?



I would guess because it's next to the floor so it could be more easily damaged.

In line with every other thing People's Gas has enacted, they're now working to eliminate multistory B venting. The new installation guidelines (our version of a fuel gas code) indicate no multi story venting. FYI.

Other than that, I see an arrangement like the picture a hundred or more times a year; common as dirt in small condo buildings.
