GFCI on a crawl space furnace


Recommended Posts

Simple answer, no.

Think about when one is installed in an unfinished garage. The receptacles in the garage are GFCI protected but not the furnace. It's the same thing.

E3902.4 Crawl space receptacles. Where a crawl space is at or below grade level, all 125-volt, single-phase, 15- and 20-ampere receptacles installed in such spaces shall have ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel.

E3902.2 Garage and accessory building receptacles. All 125-volt, single-phase, 15- or 20-ampere receptacles installed in garages and grade-level portions of unfinished accessory buildings used for storage or work areas shall have ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel.

The exception was removed in 2006, now it is ALL.

Scott,

I agree that receptacles in a crawlspace have to be GFCI protected but a furnace does not - it is hard wired, just as it is when it's installed in a garage.

Right, I was just pointing out the receptacles requirement because we got off onto plug vs hard wired.
